THE BAT forecastes BATMAN in more than one detail. The sets look a lot like Gothan City. And even the Batsignal is here - but this Batman is one bad dude.
I said genre-mix in the one line summary, because it's mainly an old dark house movie, but also contains elements of fantasy (the title giving supervillain can fly etc.) and comedy (which is partly outdated and silly).

If you like old dark house-films (incl. hidden chambers and secret doorways), this one for you.
