Nice Sequel
22 January 2016 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

While this film is nowhere near as good as the original, The Devil Bat (1940), it does have its own charm. This one is actually a mystery-horror and more towards mystery with little horror.

The flashbacks/clips of the original film really helped to make the Devil Bat's Daughter (1946) better - without them the film would fall almost flat I'm afraid. It made Bat's Daughter a lot more interesting with the flashbacks.

I enjoyed this film and I would recommend it to those that are fans of Bela Lugosi and the original film. It's not as good as the original but it is a film that is worth watching if you want to see the sequel.

5/10
