I came across this film on You Tube yesterday and was surprised to find that it was a remake of Fritz Lang's M (1931) shot in South America.
The title translate as THE BLACK VAMPIRE. M was released in South America as THE VAMPIRE OF DUSSELDORF so the title makes sense there even tho there is no vampire. This is not a scene by scene remake like the remake made in the United States in 1951.
The film has a dark moody black and white atmosphere like an older movie would have. The actor playing the killer is pretty good. In one scene he takes the daughter of a friend to the carnival and has to fight his urge to kill her.
