The Dark Nights at the Old House.. A memorable and influential mix of horror and mystery--A fun suspense filled ride... The beginning of a new genre!!

Not my favorite version, or the most enjoyable to be honest. The villain feels a bit silly, though is still interesting. The rest of the characters are fairly generic and bland, and the plot is slow and rather dull at points.

SO this is the movie that inspired Bob Kane to create the Batman comics huh? Well Well! The story takes place in a spooky old mansion of mystery writer Mrs. Cornelia Van Gorder , where a number of innocent bystanders, chiseling crooks, murder suspects and cowering bystanders converge. When the police show up, everything seems to be under control -- and then The Bat strikes again! While I do give this horror mystery some credit and I am a fan of classic horror, it also has a decent story but this movie is incredibly average, there are no thrills and the movie ends more like a cliffhanger. The Bat (1926) gets a weak 5/10.

A comic horror of a mystery reminiscent of Scooby-Doo.

This actually has quite an atmosphere. Fairly terrifying in places with a bit of comic relief mixed in.

If this is the silent film then, Yes, this movie is awesome. Not really awesome but you can clearly see the inspiration for Batman in this silly drawing room murder mystery.
