These pills are from vampire bats
A small town doctor experiments with pills made from vampire bats as a way to extend life. The pills slowly turn him into a blood thirsty monster that kills and mutilates people. Initially, the doctor wants to help capture the culprit, but he quickly uncovers the killer might be him. Can he reverse the side effects or will he have to be destroyed to stop the crimes?
"Bob's pet store. If it's alive, we've got it."
Paul Landres, director of The Lone Ranger (1949), The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, The Cisco Kid, Son of a Gun Fighter, and Johnny Rocco, delivers The Vampire. The storyline for this picture is fairly straightforward, and a bit predictable, but the plot is interesting and the make up at the end is very well done. The acting is fairly mediocre and the cast includes John Beal, Coleen Gray, Kenneth Tobey, and James Griffith.
"How is she?"
I DVR'd this picture off Turner Classic Movies (TCM) during this Halloween season (I love their old classic horror pictures). This film was a bit cliché and classic 50's campy. Yes, this film has some cheese, and probably isn't worth your time, but the end is very good and I thoroughly enjoyed the last scene. Overall, I'd probably skip this movie and wouldn't watch it again, but if you like films from this time period, you may enjoy this film.
"I killed her."
