31 Days of Halloween - Day 18 - Movie 2
When citizens start dropping dead of blood loss at the same time as the arrival of a colony of huge bats, fears of vampirism run rampant. The police inspector suspects are more rational, human, explanation, and when you see the cast you'll know who's behind all these deaths in The Vampire Bat (1933).
This is a so-so mystery thriller that gets a little repetitive, but is made very watchable by Dwight Frye's performance as the village idiot with a fondness for bats.
