A classic "Poverty Row" horror film staring Bella Lagosi as the very mad Dr. Paul Carruthers. The Doctor creates giant killer bats with the help of electricity and then uses them to kill people that have become rich by exploiting his formulas for cosmetics. Carruthers gives his victims a bottle of aftershave, which attracts the giant killer bats.
