A small-town physician ingests what he thinks are migraine pills but are actually experimental pills derived from bat serum extract. Over time he comes to the realization that he has committed a series of murders as some sort of blood-sucking hairy vampire. Good script for this Jekyll-and-Hyde story, making a superior example of this genre.

Review by Keith Elliott (posted on 22-Feb-2008)
The Vampire (1957) was one of the typical 1950's B monster movies, but this one was pretty scary in parts, at least to a 10 year old. John Beal played a small town doctor who was exposed to the blood of a patient who turned out to be a vampire. What made the movie scary to me was the excellent makeup that was used on Beal. He was not your average sauve looking vampire. His skin became all wrinkled and loose, like he was very old, or had been burned in a fire, and he had very thick, dark eyebrows that were frightening. The vampire makeup made the movie.
