The Vampire Bat Movie Review

Hollywood's answer to Nosferatu, and a lame one at that. Far Wray stars (and even she is unmemorable here) in a story that has the typical German village besieged by a neck-puncturing mystery. Vampires presumed. Very low in production values and with a forced script that can't hold a candle to even a bad Dracula movie.
