While I was tempted to try another Roger Corman movie, I figured it was time to take a break and check out some of the other public domain horror. And thus, I came across Dead Men Walk
, a vampire movie from 1943. The movie was directed by Fred Myton and, as is typical of the good old days, it pits the science-mind hero against supernatural forces. No wait, nothing has changed since then, has it?
Well, the plot is pretty basic, if you think about it. It follows the 'kill your evil twin and then suffer his undead wrath' pattern. Then again, this simplistic plot is still more in-depth, especially when you compare it to some of the modern remakes that have been haunting people. So, back to the movie. Here you find a good doctor, Lloyd Clayton, striving to live the good life. Except that it's not so easy: he has a evil, conniving twin brother, Elwyn, who dabbles in the dark arts. How bad can it be, you ask? Well, from the sounds of it, he has walked so far down the dusty path of undead loving that he might as well wear that 'I haz Necrophilia' shirt.
