The Fearless Vampire Killers is a comedy-horror-parody of the Dracula-vampire horror film, and of Hammer Studios-style 1960s horror films in particular.

Besides the satire of fighting vampires (which, visually at least, is played mostly straight, with sumptuous Victorian-era art direction, along with snowy, eastern European settings) also in this film is director Polanski's featuring of a young Sharon Tate (24 years old) as the blithely unaware vampire-bait. Polanski had to fight the producers to get Tate into the film, but since so much of this film's quality rests on its quality visuals, Sharon Tate is certainly one of the highlights of that.

A variety of running jokes fill out the script, which is a tale of self-proclaimed vampire experts trying to put the stake to the local Count (Ferdy Mayne as Count von Krolock).
