Did You Know?

Goofs

The vampire explains at the dinner table that he doesn't cast a reflection in anything (mirrors, windows etc). But when he is scratching with his nails on the door where the kids are hiding we can clearly see all of him reflected in a big mirror on the wall. Actually, his reflection in the mirror is where that shot begins. See more »

the first and last supper with Greek subtitles
10 June 2009 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Lamberto Bava must have made "A cena col vampiro" ("Dinner with the Vampire" in English) for fun. The plot follows some young people who get invited to a director's castle, only to discover that he's actually an ancient vampire who wants them to murder him. The movie contains typical '80s music and a butler whom one of the youths calls Marty Feldman (he seriously does look like Feldman).

The copy of this movie that I saw appears to be a copy of a copy. To crown everything, this copy even has Greek subtitles! As somebody fascinated by etymology, I always looked for words easy to recognize from scientific prefixes.

Otherwise, there's nothing really significant about this movie. George Hilton has certainly done better.

If in fact any Greek watched this copy, would s/he know who Marty Feldman was?
