DOUGLAS SLOCOMBE TRIBUTE: "The Fearless Vampire Killers" / "Scream of Fear" / "Circus of Horrors"
THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS, 1967, ]108 min. Director Roman Polanskis expertly balanced blend of humor and horror looks even better today than when it was released nearly 40 years ago. Phenomenal character actor Jack McGowran is perfectly cast as the ancient, screw-loose Professor Abronsius who, with his harebrained sidekick, Alfred (Polanski, doing double duty) is on the hunt for vampires in the snowy Carpathian mountains. Their pursuit shifts into high gear once Alfreds admired-from-afar love interest, the innkeepers daughter (Sharon Tate), is kidnapped by the undead Count von Krolock (Ferdy Mayne). SCREAM OF FEAR, 1961, 81 min. Dir. Seth Holt. After the death of her mother, wheelchair-bound Penny Applebee (Susan Strasberg) goes to live with her father on his estate. Shes told hes away when she arrives, but she keeps seeing his dead body and begins to believe a plot is afoot to drive her insane. This eerily atmospheric entry from Englands Hammer Films is among its best, and costars studio regular Christopher Lee. CIRCUS OF HORRORS, 1960, 88 min. Dir. Sidney Hayers. In this lurid British shocker, plastic surgeon Anton Diffring botches a job and flees for France, where he operates successfully on circus owner Donald Pleasences daughter.
