Gloria Holden makes a stylish villain as the famous Transylvanian count’s daughter (just who he reproduced with is beyond me, but anyway), who now roams dark American streets in search of young girls to prey upon. Irving Pichel is a scream as her trusty troll-slave, and everything is performed at a delicious B-movie fever pitch.
