Grzegorz Warchol – Lubie nietoperze AKA I Like Bats [+Commentary] (1986)

Directed and co-written by Grzegorz Warchol – the Polish actor best known for his performance in THREE COLORS: WHITE, and Krystyna Kofta – this 1986 Perspektywa Film Group production combines splashes of absurdist black comedy with jolts of old-school gothic horror for a slyly contemporary take on the female bloodsucker mythos. Katarzyna Walter stars as a happily single young vampire who works in her aunt’s curio shop when not feeding on various suitors and sleazebags.
