Critic Reviews for The Vampire
Unreels as a horror rewrite of Nicholas Ray's 'Bigger Than Life,' as Beal's addiction to his serum turns him into not just a literal monster but a monstrous father...
Audience Reviews for The Vampire
Nothing too interesting here. There are good story elements but eventually it just turns to be another generic man-monster on the loose movie. Campy at times, but hardly memorable.
A good vampire movie, not great, but enjoyable enough to watch.
This was actually a great movie. Not sure why they called it The Vampire, but there was 2 punvture wounds to the neck so guess it fits the bill. To me it was more like a Dr Jeckyell Mr Hyde type film, as after taking a pill, which was slipped to the great doctor by his very young daughter, he becomes a Mr Hyde type Vampire, after being bite you don't return from the dead your cells just kind of rot. But it was excellent over all. It comes in the MGM Midnight Madness Collection.
