The Bat (1959)
80 min.
Directed by Crane Wilbur.
With Vincent Price, Agnes Moorehead, Gavin Gordon, John Sutton, Lenita Lane, Elaine Edwards, Darla Hood, John Bryant.
Remake of the 1926 silent movie, this one stars Agnes Moorehead as a mystery writer staying at a remote mansion with her loyal assistant. A notorious prowler who is looking for some loot soon terrorizes the women. (He's called the "Bat" because of his mask and clawed gloves that he uses to kill his victims with.)

Slight fun. You can never go wrong with Price, a supporting good cast and gimmicky touches from the Master of Camp William Castle himself. Enjoyable midnight viewing.
