Product Description:

Bela Lugosi plays crazed scientist Dr. Paul Carruthers, who feels he has been treated horribly by the cosmetics companies and sets out to get his revenge in THE DEVIL BAT. To do this, he comes up with an ingenious--and very deadly--scheme: he trains bats to murder his enemies. Whenever the creatures smell the scent of a perfume he has created, they attack, and Dr. Carruthers makes sure that the targets of his wrath are covered in the fragrance.

Plot Synopsis:

Driven by the thrill of vengeance, a crazy scientist devises a particularly diabolical murder scheme. He spent years training a swarm of bloodsucking killer bats to attack their prey of men at any given time. The attraction that these little, flying creatures have to these unsuspecting gentlemen is the smell of their aftershave.

The Devil Bat Movie Lover: from Elizabethtown, PA US -- April, 8, 2010

I Always enjoy watchig the late Bella Lugosi carry a movie. He is still an icon. I liked this movie in black and white color adds a different dimention to the film which I like also
This movie was borrowed from many times,see the Ammicus production The Killer Bees. Thank you for re-working and restoring a classic movie
