Atom Age Vampire comes to us from one of the better box set of films. Once again it's meant to be "living dead" films but this isn't really one of those cases. Although, despite watching this film I'm still foggy on the logistics and I'm pretty sure there isn't an actual vampire in it. Full disclosure: this was boring enough that anything and everything distracted me while watching it.
|Oh god! I look like Tim Curry!|
Never mind, that's not the mirror.
Despite the lightning quickness of establishing Jeanette and her story, the rest of this was a slog. I'm glad I watched it but it's more for the right to say that I watched it as opposed to actual enjoyment. I'm sure there is a whole intentional meaning behind the use of radiation and the fact that Dr. Levin studied the effects after the bombing of Hiroshima but I can't be bothered to find it. Let's say that the actions were monstrous and, as such, his grotesque form is meant to represent the true creature of destruction, the white American male. There. I did it. Big dick Nobel Prize winning shit there!
I give Atom Age Vampire 1 Nobel Prize out of 5:
