In 1918, an English family are terrorized by a vampire, until they learn how to deal with it. They think their troubles are over, but German bombs in WWII free the monster. He reclaims the soul of his wolfman ex-servant, and assuming the identity of a scientist who has just escaped from a concentration camp, he starts out on a plan to get revenge upon the family.

The Columbia Gower studios were rather cramped so the production moved to Fine Arts Studio for the cemetery sequence. See more »
When Nina Foch is introduced to Lugosi, she is the granddaughter of Dr Saunders (Uncredited Gilbert Emery) and Lugosi comments on having met her grandfather. The next time they meet - Lugosi summons from sleep, she asks why he summoned her - he says 'you read your FATHER's manuscript'. In the prior scene he acknowledged that her grandfather was Dr Saunders but in the next scene refers to his notes as written by her father. See more »
Return of the Vampire is, despite its title not a sequel to Mark of the Vampire.
In this vampire movie, a vampire is staked during World War 1 but then in the Second World War, two gravediggers bury him again after an air raid. They don't realise this corpse is a vampire after pulling the stake out his chest. He regenerates and gets a job in a lab. He has the help of a werewolf that can talk and killings once again start...
One of the best things about this movie is that talking werewolf. I don't think I've seen another movie with one. Unusual.
The cast is lead by Bela Logosi as the Dracula-like vampire. I've never heard of anybody else in this.
Return of the Vampire is worth checking out, especially if you are a fan of Bela.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
