Garlic time or, Vienna Blood
13 April 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I saw this Finnish, cheaply produced but absolutely charming vampire operetta/comedy Lepakkolinna (Bat Castle, 1980) in TV as a child and later I bought it as DVD. It is po-faced fun set in 1860's Transylvania, where a colourful group of travelers, including Viennese diva, her pianist named Strauss (of course!), a vampire-hunting monk and (real-life) 19th century scientist Pierre Pasteur end to the castle Dracula. They meet both Count (who looks like Christopher Lee) and Frankenstein's monster and try to save themselves from, gasp, becoming vampires. Kivikasvot (Stone-faces) was popular Finnish comedy group, and this hour-long film was made for TV.
