The Vampire’s Ghost
is a favorite of mine. It’s well-paced (barely
an hour long), and has a script by Leigh Brackett (who also wrote Rio Bravo) that draws a bit from
Polidori’s The Vampyre, an even older
inspiration than Stoker’s, in the spooky moonlight resurrection. John Abbot
really manages to seem a hundred years old at times. Sure, it’s got the racial
insensitivity that was standard for the time, but it’s the black fellow who
recognizes the vampire, organizes the drum relay to track him, and finishes him
off: The white folks are relatively useless.

It's good looking, imaginatively shot film.The main component of INVISIBLE GHOST that squarely marks it for me as Monogram Picture is that crazy plot. I've seen it umpteen times and am still not exactly sure of what's going on at times! Slightly OT: my winner for craziest Poverty Row plot goes to THE APE, but that's mainly me trying to imagine how Karloff was supposed to have successfully peeled a whole gorilla.
