Mel Brooks' YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN & Roman Polanski's The Fearless Vampire Killers
Mel Brook's YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN (PG, 1974, 106 min)
Young Frankenstein is a raucous, irrevent parody of Universal's classic horror films. Frederick Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) decides to resume experiments in re-animation pioneered by his late father. Assisting him is the hapless hunchback Igor (Marty Feldman) and the buxom maiden Inga (Teri Garr), and when Frankenstein succeeds in creating his monster (Peter Boyle), the stage is set for an outrageous revision of the Frankenstein legend.
Roman Polanski’s THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS (PG, 1967, 108 min.)
Jack MacGowran and Roman Polanski star as a hilarious and bumbling pair of vampire killers who are tasked with rescuing the buxom daughter (Sharon Tate) of a Jewish innkeeper from a bloodsucker named Count Krolock. Now, the duo must muddle through all sorts of funny scrapes, including a roomful of dancing vampires who realize the humans are the only ones reflected in a mirror.
