Creature Feature
1 December 2005 | by (TCM's Basement) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this movie in at least 25 years but I still remember how fun it was to watch. The headmistress of this school for girls, takes an interest in one the girls and starts to give her private lessons. First she hypnotizes the girl with a big brooch that she always wears and then somehow turns her into a blood sucking vampire! I'm sure she must whip up some instant vampire potion along the way. It's great fun but it's not one of those movies that are so bad, they're good, this is pretty good and entertaining. It's along the lines of "I Was A Teenage Werewolve." Some creepy music, but no real scary moments. Just a fun 1950's drive-in double feature flick.
