The Vampire Bat at Lightbox Film Center

Date/Time

May 16, 2019
07:00 PM until 08:00 PM

Description

Everybody loves Dr. von Niemann (Lionel Atwill), clueless that he is using a cover story of medieval vampirism to murder the proletariat of Kleines Schloss and gleefully feed their blood to the artificial being he has created (it looks suspiciously like a loofa sponge oxygenating in an aquarium). With this travelling circus of horrors traipsing through cast-off sets from The Old Dark House and Frankenstein, plus a day trip to Bronson Canyon, Frank Strayer’s The Vampire Bat plays like a midnight matinee from the old Shock Theater TV package. UCLA's restoration recreates the sensational Gustav Brock color sequence, unacknowledged and unseen since its first run. This screening is part of Lightbox Film Center’s new series, Down & Dirty in Gower Gulch, a retrospective of low-budget “Poverty Row” films from the ‘30s and ‘40s restored by UCLA Film & Television Archives.
