another tedious early 60s bore-fest
One part Wolf Man, one part Mr Hyde, and two parts mad scientist fable, this Italian film has no vampires, only a "doctor/professor" trying to perfect his rad new treatment for skin burns. It involves hormone therapy and radiation treatment. Only, wait. The doc was previously in Hiroshima, studying the effects of radiation, got exposed himself ... and that CHANGED him. There's movie mayhem in them there hills coming right up as the doc gets in way over his head, but you've seen it all before.
No vampires, no acting, no captions to make up for bad dubbing. This might be the worst movie I ever sat through, except that it did make me laugh because it was so bad.
Typical low budget thriller of the early 1950's - except this was made in 1960. Comes across as a made-for-Italian-TV with dubbed English. A shallow idea about nuclear radiation (which has zero to do with actual radiation effects - photos of Hiroshima victims show thermal burns) is pigeon-holed to serve as a plot device. The Doc never really seemed to be interested in his gorgeous lab assistant (interacting with an intelligent woman should have been a turn on), but instead falls MADLY in love with an aging, dumb blonde.
The cinematography isn't horrible for the time, and the pacing/editing of the film could have been much worse. But then half the dialogue is unimaginative also. This is most certainly worth watching, as an example of a cheaply made period piece. Be sure to tally the medical/scientific inaccuracies.
Awful dubbing, marginal special effects...meh.
Nice B movie for a low budget horror film.
a total waste of 1 hour 25 minutes
Not exactly an apt title since there are no vampires to speak of. This is a cheap copy of Franju's "Eyes Without a Face", and as such, it's not bad. Reasonably entertaining and not much more.
Fun Italian trash horror flick--Early 60s Euro-trash that works in a few spots!!
Terrible translation and an uninteresting storyline make Atom Age Vampire (where is the vampire?) one of those old drive-in flicks that was made to be ignored while other activities took a front seat.
