Mara Corday, Jeff Morrow and Morris Ankrum do the best they can with the script...have heard Morrow saw TGC premiere in his home town and left the theatre early to avoid being seen and started drinking as soon as He got home. *

Couldn't, or wouldn't?

"Couldn't"

A 400-year-old disembodied head hypnotizes a female psychic, who recovered it using a dowsing rod, to search for the rest of its body.

THE VAMPIRE BAT (1933). Poverty Row thriller that is actually pretty good. A series of Vampire-like killings are affecting a small village and naturally, Blame falls on the Village Idiot (A great Dwight Frye as Renfield quadrupled)who enjoys playing with bats. After his demise (quite sadistic and harrowing), the murders still continue.
Very low budget with almost insufferable Comic relief, this still is an entertaining little flick with a great cast ; Melvyn Douglas (THE OLD DARK HOUSE, HUD), Lionel Atwill, Robert Frasier (WHITE ZOMBIE), Fay Wray (KING KONG, DR X-looking lovely in this and no screaming either) and Lionel Belmore (FRANKENSTEIN). A lot of recognizable sets from Universal films and Bronson Canyon that was used in many films, especially of a Sci-Fi nature. ***

Cool

I just saw another Japanese monster movie called "Destroy All Monsters" in America, which is most likely not its original title for out in Japan, where it's from. This one begins with Godzilla, his son, Mothra, Gorgan, and a few others trapped on an island out in the middle of the ocean with force fields preventing them from leaving it to where they can all do their things, but can not harm or destroy society. Earth then gets attacked by aliens from outer space, wanting to take over the planet, bringing their own monsters from outer space to help them, only they are not prepared to take on Earth's monsters named above. Overall, this one is very well done. The stunt work and staged combat is very well done. The costumes, toy buildings set to look like cities being destroyed look close enough to real for a 1960s made movie. Even the added fx are a lot better than most from that time period. Fans of the classic Godzilla, Mothra, and Gorgan movies should definitely find this one worth a look.
