When several new residents of a small Czechoslovakian village are menaced, seemingly by a pair of vampires, a detective and a vampire expert are called in to investigate. This remake of the 1927 silent chiller London After Midnight reunites Dracula director Tod Browning and star Bela Lugosi.

    wonderful gothic atmosphere but there's an odd tone to the film and you'll soon discover why. i still can't decide if the ending is clever or just ridiculous. not browning's finest hour but worth seeing

    Godawful script (due, at least in part, to the numerous scenes that were never shot and a number of others which did not make the final cut) is somewhat redeemed by some decent atmosphere, a spectacular sequence (with some very impressive special effects) and a very creepy performance by Mr. Lionel Atwill. Is this a remake of "London After Midnight"?

    Barely a step above a Ed Wood film, which is surprising with such a good cast and a great director like Tod Browning. The pace and editing of the film is chaotic and the story is stupid. The only saving grace is the look and it's only 80 minutes. I read this film had 20 plus minutes cut out so that would explain why it was so horrible. It also has a bad twist ending reminiscent of April Fools Day, do not waste your time.

    Ultimately disappointing vampire story, whose only saving grace is Carol Borland, who really spooked me in her role as the female vampire.
