The master of horror, Vincent Price, and the 'bewitching' Agnes Moorehead star in this classic adaptation of the famous stage hit. Murder, mystery and terror abound in this bone-chilling thriller. There's a creaky old mansion, a small fortune in stolen money, dead bodies, a hooded mad killer, bats and suspects galore to keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end! And don't forget - when the bat flies, someone dies!
Based on the Gothic novel by Mary Roberts Rinehart, this haunted house mystery casts Agnes Moorehead as a mystery writer who has just moved into a spooky old mansion. It's former owner was recently killed, but not before hiding one million ill-gotten dollars somewhere in the house. Now, a nefarious killer known only as the "Bat" is trying to find the money, while bodies and mysteries build up in this strange old house. Filmed before in 1915 (silent), 1926 (silent) and 1930 (talkie).

Yes, the low budget shows, but with pros like Vincent Price and Agnes Moorehead on hand, how can you go wrong? A great little suspense film -- I really enjoyed it!!

The Bat does keep you guessing until the end. Vincent Price and Agnes Moorehead will not let you down. I enjoy a good mystery/thriller. Just keep in mind that this is as stated above a low budget movie. However, if you enjoy Mr. Price and Ms. Moorehead's movies (and I do), you will like this one. The supporting cast is not bad either.

Although there is not much of a "bat" involved in the movie, it is still quite entertaining and well directed.
An excellent thriller!

50's thrillers don't get much better than this, it is superb. Prince is great and it's a really good who-done-it! I won't spoil the ending for you...Get this and find out WHO the Bat really is?

Good mystery from Allied Artists Studios(which used to be Monogram). Vincent Price and Gavin Gordon are doctor and detective respectively who are trying to unravel identity of the mysterious criminal "The Bat". Lower budgeted than a lot of Price's other films but enough characters to keep you guessing right until the end.
