The Devil Bat (1940)
As far as the entertainment goes, Ya have Bela Lugosi in big goofy goggles playing with his potions and bats, you get two dim witted reporters who are trying to figure the whole thing out and a bunch of cheesy scenes in which victims are attacked by the giant fake looking bat. Not only does the bat look fake but it squeals like a hawk before it attacks. This all happens while the bad actors try their hardest to look believable. Lugosi's accent is as thick as ever in this one and most of the time its pretty hard to understand him but this is nothing new to fans of the cult icon.
The Devil Bat is only worth looking at for lovers of truly bad cinema and Lugosi fanatics. All others would probably be better off skipping it all together.
