VAMPIRE BAT -1932 - 69 mins - STARRING: FAY WRAY, LIONEL ATWILL AND MELVYN DOUGLAS
A series of "vampire murders" terrorize a European village. Thousands of monstrous bats fill the night sky of a terrified village, while residents are murdered in their beds, drained of all their blood. As the killings increase, rumors of a vampire in their midst send the townspeople into a frenzy of panic, as even the most respected scientist of the community seems convinced by the evidence. Only one investigator refuses to believe the superstitious tales and argues that a maniac must be at the root of the killings. A mob gathers to hunt down the suspected vampire and drive a stake through his heart, yet the exorcism fails to end the horrific slayings. Shot on "borrowed" sets used in Universal's seminal horror films and starring some of the genre's greatest supporting players, The Vampire Bat stands with White Zombie as a low budget terror classic.
A village is in terror, their people are dying. Is it vampire bats, or some other monster? Or a mad scientist who needs blood for his experiments? Filmed on the old Universal Studios lot. Directed by Frank R. Strayer.
DEVIL BAT -1941 -67 mins - STARRING: BELA LUGOSI, SUZANNE KAAREN, DAVE O'BRIEN AND GUY USHER.
Bela Lugosi stars as a mad scientist who creates monstrous bats to seek revenge in this infamous horror thriller. Mad scientist Dr. Paul Carruthers (Bela Lugosi), creates a giant murderous bat by inundating a normal bat with electrical current. He plans to seek vengeance on his employers, the Heath family, whose cosmetic firm has generated many millions of dollars through sales of the shaving lotion that the doctor had created. Although he had willingly sold the patent rights to the family, he begins to systematically murder them with the monstrous flying demon he has bred. Asking his victims to sample his latest shaving lotion, he admonishes them to apply a bit to "the tender part of the neck." Unfortunately for them, the hideous devil-bat has been taught to attack that particular scent with predictably lethal results. Forebodings of Carruther's malevolent intentions are signaled in his sinister accent as he warmly bids them "Goodbye." Directed By: Jean Yarbrough
