Victor Von Helsing: And it is a commonly held misconception that the undead can transform themselves into bats. Pure nonsense. True, they can change into frogs, flounders, aardvarks, pelicans, baboons and warthogs but never bats.

Great Film
22 March 2003 | by (Worksop, England) – See all my reviews

I saw this because Angus Scrimm is in it he steals the film when he makes fun out of his most famous horror character The Tall Man from the Phantasm films. But the film is more like a spoof and should not be taken serious at all and keep a look out for Boris Karloff has he makes a special appearance.
