Roman Polanski’s comedies (“Pirates”, advice “What?”, “The Fearless Vampire Killers” and arguably “Cul-De-Sac”) are all cut from the same ultra-wacky cloth, and all are an acquired taste, to be sure. “TFVK” has its ups and downs, but one of its high points is Polish composer Krzysztof Komeda’s lush, beautiful and purposefully overdramatic score, the title theme of which will burrow a hole in your brain immediately upon your first listen.

Komeda also scored Polanski’s “Rosemary’s Baby” before his untimely death in 1969. “TFVK” was also one of the last films to feature actress Sharon Tate before she was murdered by the Manson Family,
