Dead Men Walk: Terrible Movies #94
A Dracula rip-off where they've substituted people standing around in the dark talking for horror and suspense. Features a distracting score more appropriate for a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Is a piccolo the right instrument for a scene where a hunchback digs up a coffin in a misty graveyard? I'm not sure. Also features murky noir cinematography and an unconvincing love story. By the way, this film has some messages I'm not okay with. Burning books is not okay. Reading books does not turn you into a vampire. And it's not okay for gangs of vigilantes to force their way into your house without a search warrant, even if those vigilantes are easily thwarted when you turn out a light. I watched it at Hulu, and you can watch it below, but I'm not sure you should.
