Description by OLDIES.com:
Director/co-writer Roman Polanski (The Pianist, Rosemary's Baby, Chinatown) spoofs vampire movies with this droll balancing act of shocks and laughs. He also portrays Alfred, mousy apprentice to a doddering researcher of vampirism (Jack MacGowran)...and the lovestruck defender of gorgeous Sarah (Sharon Tate) when the Count (Ferdy Mayne) tries to make her the ghoul of his dreams. It's all fang-tastic fun!
- Theatrical release: November 13, 1967 (New York City).
- Director Roman Polanski disapproved of the edited, retitled, and partially redubbed version of the movie released in the U.S. and tried (unsuccessfully) to have his name removed from the credits.
- The artwork for the original U.S. movie poster was done by racy cartoon artist Frank Frazetta.
- The script was originally written in French, but the film was shot in English.
