A student of the black arts returns from the dead as an overenunciating vampire. Dual roles from George Zucco can't save this impoverished Poverty Row DRACULA ripoff (Dwight Frye even plays a watered down version of Renfield).

Pretty good 40s horror with masterful performances by the underrated George Zucco. Dwight Frye pops up in his usual role too. A reasonably straight vampire movie that starts better than it ends.
½ November 1, 2012
A bromidic black and white vampire film in which George Zucco plays two different characters, twins in fact, and does a decent job. Adam Sandler should take notes.

Decent moments and characters, but not much else. The ending was climatic enough but didn't really do much good to the film. The story isn't too great and the pacing is a little off with a few slow moments.

Spooky old classic, but it is hurt badly by very poor acting by much of the cast. Good atmosphere. Most definitely a "B" movie.

Dead Men Walk
Starring: George Zucco, Mary Carlisle, and Nedrick Young
Director: Sam Newfield

Elwyn Clayton (Zucco) is a devoted Satanist who is murdered by his twin brother Lloyd (also Zucco), who wants to rid the world of this evil wearing his face. Although Lloyd successfully covers up the murder, he soon finds himself stalked by his dead brother who has been resurrected by the Dark Powers as a vampire. Worse, Elwyn intends to drain the life from Lloyd's beautiful ward, Gayle (Carlisle) before visiting his undead revenge upon his brother.

"Dead Men Walk" is a just about as typical a vampire movie as you'll ever see. Everything in it is pretty much as you would expect. So long as you're not hoping for anything original, it's a fairly entertaining B-movie.

The best part of the film is the climax where Lloyd battles Elwyn and his hunchbacked minion as a house burns down around them. Again, it's not anything you haven't seen before, but it's nicely staged.
