  2. msmichel's rating of the film The Vampire Bat

    Under-rated thriller finds a doctor experimenting with human blood attempting to play on a town's superstitions by making a series of murders look like the work of a vampire and attempting to frame the town simpleton. Not a horror film despite the title but a fine thriller with an 'A' cast including Melvyn Douglas, Fay Wray, Lionel Atwill and a deranged Dwight Frye. Well worth a look.

  3. ExperimentoFilm's rating of the film The Vampire Bat

    Dwight Frye = Klaus Kinski + Leonardo DiCaprio.

  4. o_oo's rating of the film The Vampire Bat

    really under-appreciated. ends up being too many old men standing around talking in rooms. but some scenes (opening sequence, lynching, fay wrays scene in the garden-making the [stupid-]hero kiss an apple, most of the interior tracking shots) shines with the darkest, slowest brilliance.
