Castlevania 4 SNES (Oh god, HELP)

I just started playing this and have breezed through the first four levels.
Now I'm stuck on the stage 5 end boss (the ghost- dancing- couple boss).
I have a hard time keeping track of the boss because it keeps disappearing!
Then of course, it materialises right on top of me and takes a huge chunk off my life bar. Luckily, I found a hidden 1 up just prior to the end but all that does is leave me at a stalemate. Anyone know how to beat this really cheap boss without too much hassle?

Heh, ok screw that. I beat it. Now I'm on the impossibly cheap sewer level and crossed a collapsing bridge. But now there's all these one- hit- death- double- sided spike- traps that keep killing me! I've got as far as one part where it seems like you've got to drop from a platform on to a lower one with a spike trap set directly above it. If I try to jump to it (even when the trap is at peak height) I always get brushed by the spikes and die.
Anyone know how to get around it?
