a hunchback servant, Our Vampire starts looking for necks; not just for blood,
but to cast doubts on his twins abilities, motives and sanity; nice touch. But
the movie is painfully slow, and very predictable; not a lot of suspense, and
minimal horror. In his doctor guise, George Zucco plays a tired old man; as the
