The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967)
Directed by Roman Polanski
Written by Roman Polanski & Gerard Brach
From frame the first, FVK is exceptionally annoying, painfully slow, and totally without logic or merit. What could be a great horror film at least based on its visual appeal and unique setting is undercut by a slapstick comic sensibility stolen from Benny Hill's shithouse.
Even the scenes that are supposed to be sexy come across as stilted and awkward. Cult film fanatics be damned, FVK is the kind of film only Harry Knowles could love.
My viewing companion and I struggled to stay awake and eventually watched the last half in fast forward. We didn't miss a bloody thing.
