Dead Men Walk (1943)

An American horror directed by Sam Newfield, starring Dwight Frye, George Zucco and Mary Carlisle.
A man dies and becomes a vampire. He feeds on a young woman who is being cared for by her boyfriend and a doctor.
This was a stupid, cheap and inferior Dracula knock-off. The stale plot, forgettable characters and bad video complete the package. The only good thing was the intro. It featured a man's face superimposed on a fire as he spoke some menacing lines about the undead. The title got a Dead End song, Dead Man's Rock stuck in my head although a more appropriate tune would have been Alice Cooper's Ballad of Dwight Frye. I rate this bad. DO NOT WATCH!
