Dance of the Vampires


That night, penetrating deep into

the heart of Transylvania...

...Professor Abronsius was unaware

that he was on the point...

...of reaching the goal

of his mysterious investigations.

In the course of which he had journeyed

throughout central Europe...

...accompanied by his one and only

faithful disciple, Alfred.

A scholar and scientist

whose genius was unappreciated...

...Abronsius had given up all

to devote himself body and soul... what was, to him, a sacred mission.

He had even lost his chair

at Kurnigsburg University...

...where for a long time his colleagues

used to refer to him as The Nut.




Quick, quick!

-Hurry, hurry!


-No, no, over here.

-Don`t push me!

Not against the stove,

because of gangrene!

Hot beer!

Hot beer and cinnamon!


lt will break like glass.

-A mustard bath for his feet!

-His nose as well. His nose as well.

-No! Not the nose!

-Stand him up! Stand him up!


Rebecca! Where is the bikos

for the gentlemen, no?

lt`s ready, it`s ready!

We drive on a little further

until we get to Bubuski....

Now we get to Fulidnish....


Garlic, my boy. Garlic.

You think....

Without a doubt.



ls it finished?

-Yes, it`s finished.

-Wait, wait. We don`t go to Brevarsky?

To Brevarsky.

-No, no, no.

-We don`t go to lski?

No, no, not to lski, no.

The whole winter, if need be.

lndeed, the summer as well.

lt`s a home away from home, no?

-Tell me....

-l`m telling you!

-Listen, you`ve got--

-The garlic.


-No, no, no.

-What is all the garlic doing here?



Not garlic, professor.

Please, not garlic.

ls there, by any chance,

a castle in the district?

By any chance a castle

in the district?

On the word of Yoyneh, there`s no

more a castle here than a windmill.

Does anybody here know a windmill

in the district?

No? You see? And a castle,

anybody know a castle?

-There`s a castle just over--

-You see?

No castle, no windmill.

Eat, eat, eat.

The bikos is good. You like?

Eat! Look, the little one, he`s eating.

There. You see?

You have the best room in the house.

With its own bathroom. Come.

You`ll be very warm, nice, comfortable.

Please, just take a look.

l`d forgotten Sarah!

l mean, this bath will be free

when this--

l promise, it will be free tomorrow.

Tomorrow, professor.

Use the conveniences in the corridor.

Last door on the left.

Good night, gentlemen.

Dear boy!

All these signs!

All these signs!

We are nearing our goal at last!

We are nearing our goal!

Last door on the left?

We are nearing our goal.


l told you to stay in your room!

-But you always take a bath!


-l`ll give you that bath!

-l won`t! l won`t, Papa! No!

-l told you, every day you are having baths!

-l won`t!

l told you, no bath!

No bath! No bath! No bath!

Now you satisfied. Now you got it.


Read this.

``According to Elibori...

...they cast no reflected image.

Thus, for example, one cannot see them,

nor can they see themselves, in a mirror.

ln a mirror.

Mirror. Nor in any other

object serving the same purpose... water, windowpanes, etcetera.``

Water, windowpanes....

What`s next? What`s next?

Someone is walking in the corridor.

Quickly, take them off! Take them off!

Always singing.

What`s my good little fairy up to?

What`s she doing?

Your good little fairy is mending

your nightshirt.

This nightshirt is mine?

No. Yes?

Right, good. lt`s perfect as it is.

l`ll try it on.

lf you try your nightshirt

in my room, l scream.

Yoyneh! Yoyneh!

Hurry, hurry!
