Forget all about Count Dracula, Transylvania, wooden stakes or garlic. The bloodsucker in this terrible, and terribly boring, would-be horror flick is more closely related to Dr. Jekyll's evil alter-ego, Mr. Hyde. A Hyde wearing a mask remindful of Lon Chaney, Jr.'s Wolfman on a bad day. Vampires and vampire bats, in fact, are dragged into the story to merely capitalize on the popularity old-time horror films, who were enjoying a resurgence on television at the time. But this is 1957 and the acting is very much of the no-nonsense Dragnet caliber rather than the florid style of the old Universal shockers.
