Long... ennuyant... il se passe rien, on peut pas tellement appeler ša un film d'horreur non plus.
½ December 30, 2012
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 3, 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.

Meh. A vampire and hunchback terrorize a village in the low budget picture.

campy fun but cheap cheap!
½ March 21, 2012
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.

Dead Men Walk suffers from a tedious villain, a basic story, and subpar direction.

An enjoyable vampire flick. It was probably good for its time but has not held up well over the long haul. However, would be a recommendation to the lover of the fang features.

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).

Despite being pretty much a weaker version of Dracula (complete with Dwight Frye playing a subservient madman that shouts "master" --but hey, he's good at it), the film is not a complete rip-off due to its "evil twin" angle, which makes this film unique in the vampire movie genre.
Zucco makes the film, giving a solid, and appropriately creepy, performance. He does not, however, have the appeal of Lugosi, as much as the film may try to emulate that.

An interesting little diversion among vampire films, with the neat use of twins battling each other... one good, while the other is the evil vampire.

Though not the greatest of movies, it would be worth it just to see a differant take on the vampire film from that era.

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

A perfect movie for a rainy saturday afternoon.

...isn't this just dracula? a vampire can't continue feeding, so he sends his servant in to remove the item that's driving him away...that's from dracula, right? well, this whole movie is pretty much dracula...the only difference is that in this movie the vampire has a look-alike brother that's fighting against him. overall, it's alright...but you're better off sticking to the original rather than wandering over to view this film instead.

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.
