Monster of the Day #270

Breath mints, dude. Breath mints.

Inquiring minds want to know!

    It’s difficult to be frightened of a vampire who looks like my sophomore year english teacher. I don’t recognize the movie but it looks European.

  • Flangepart

    And they don’t look all that pointy. What, is he gonna gnaw on her awhile to get into a vein?

  • Ericb

    Oh Dear, please, not another Twilight night.

  • Rock Baker

    Goin’ for the REAL obscure stuff now, are we? German or Italian? I’m pretty sure its not Uncle Was A Vampire, although that was my first impulse.

  • zombiewhacker

    Nope. Don’t know this one. What’s this week’s theme, anyway? I thought it was spider-related.

  • Rock Baker

    The connecting theme seems to be obscure genre fare from Germany.

  • Well, from the continent, anyway.

  • Rock Baker

    So how long do we guess before you unveil the answer?

  • Rock Baker

    Ah! Thanks, Ken. This one has been on my wish list for a good while now. I am a little nervous as the still looks like a comical shot and I was hoping for the straight, if cheesecakey, horror pic advertised by the poster.

  • No, as I recall it’s pretty serious…goofy, but serious.

    Okay, I can buy that. German cinema must be stuffed to the Leaderhosen with jabootu worthy material. I say, bring it on, and bring out the beer and pretzels.

  • Actually, this one’s Italian. There’s a lot of tonal crossover, though.

  • Rock Baker

    For what its worth, I have some Video Cheese reviews of German movies on their way.

  • There does seem to be some overlap between German and Italian movies. Dario Argento, for instance, set (and for all I know, filmed) several of his movies in Gemrany, notably Suspiria and Phenomena. Of course, usually Argento manages to float above the Jabootu level.
