Entertaining little flick here. Shoestring budget is evident by the opening frames, but Lugosi and co manage to actually make a not that laughable B budget horror film here. A ridiculous premise for killing people, but damned original, gotta give them that. Lugosi is the bright spot here, relishing and getting the most out of every line of admittedly kinda corny dialogue. 4 stars. Great fun. Worse ways to spend an hr
Quite like a mix between the raven and Dracula, we find back the legendary Bela Lugosi as a mad scientist but this time he gives the vampiric job to demonic giant bats, result of his crazy experimentations. Valuable film mostly for Lugosi's very distinctive expressionist play and strong accent. Unique actor and personality.
