Who am I? What am I doing, I - I'm living a nightmare!, 16 June 2012
Author: Ben Larson from Leesburg, FL

There were flashes, albeit brief, of good acting in this drive-in special.

Sandra Harrison played a troubled teen dumped in a boarding school by her father. Her resentment was tapped by the science teacher (Louise Lewis) who was bitter towards the men who ruled her profession.

She decried experimentation into atomic energy as means to war and unrest, and proclaimed her efforts to tap an inner energy as the formula for peace in the world. That inner energy was a vampire. Now, we don't often see female vampires (Queen of the Damned and Let Me In are two that come to mind.).

Being 1957, we, of course, are spared the blood and gore - kinda like a Twilight film, but no sparkles.

It was an interesting film for those who like to explore drive-in classics, but not much for anyone else.
