FERAT VAMPIRE (Upír z Feratu, 1981)
Upír z Feratu, 1981, 93min, Czechoslovakia
Czech with English subtitles
with Jiří Menzel, Dagmar Veškrnová, Jana Břežková
Doctor Marek (Jiří Menzel*) is upset to lose his ambulance driver, Mima (Dagmar Veškrnová), to a job working as a rally driver for foreign car manufacturer Ferat, and even more upset when he hears whispers that Ferat cars use human blood for their fuel. Assaulted by censors, Ferat Vampire still boasts a blood-bathed dream sequence, a disturbing industrial soundtrack, and a piquant performance by Zdenka Procházková as Madame Ferat, a kind of Countess Elizabeth Báthory-as-industrialist. A satire on consumerism, a potent piece of anti-automobile propaganda, and perhaps the purest horror exercise that Herz produced.
