Where does this movie take place? They've got both a desert and a ski resort, and must be in Central/South America, because after a bat bite, the main character displays traits of a vampire bat, and vampire bats don't live in North America. But no one speaks Spanish in the movie, so what gives?

This guy is just homicidal (sorry, "heterocidal") and mentally unhinged. The bat bite had nothing to do with anything and he's just using it as an excuse to roll his eyes and pretend to convulse every time he wants to get out of an annoying conversation. He's giving bats a bad name. Shame on him!

This is one of my favorite episodes...I'm suprised it isn't more popular. The movie is so goofy, and the riffs are hilarious.

I just noticed as the titles went by that Michael Pataki's a hat-tricker on MST3K, as well (Sidehackers, Superdome, and as the cop here)...How about the special-effects credit: Stanley Winston, who became the world's best loved 'movie-creature' creator with the 'Alien' franchise. He came a long way from these rodent hand-puppets, didn't he?!

I hope no bats were hurt in the making of this "movie." They're actually way cuter and less creepy than the so-called human beings involved. :/

I can't stop laughing about how the cop says homocidal and they just decided not to do another take.

This seems like a pageant of the most unappealing people ever.
The Creepy Cop is just looking for an excuse to kill someone.
The Lazy Ski Bum Doctor has the worlds biggest malpractice suit coming.
Dr. Werebat and his Wife just seem to Hate each other.
My vote for Worst person in the film goes to Pervert Hotel Manager at around 1:15. He somehow hears a light breathless scream (from across a hotel parking lot...), runs to her room, lets himself in and when he finds a lone woman in her hotel bed he enters the room, leans on her bed, leers at her and offers "If you need me...".
The worst part is if she called the police she would just get Creepy Cop...

While the movie could've been done far better, I do enjoy that for the majority of the movie we're not sure whether what's-his-face is just crazy or is actually turning into a bat. I'll give them kudos for actually attempting a plot!
But my main question on this episode is this: which of those former husbands of Pearl's was Dr. Forrester's dad??

Wow, hell of a weekend. Arizona dessert, Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico, then downhill skiing in the Rockies in the same weekend. Must be one of those 7-day weekends Reagan got rid of in the 80's.

Hey just realized a pattern between some of these later "horror" movies. In this movie and werewolf the love interest becomes inhuman like the main character and they live in a sort of creepy happily ever after. And in the touch of satan, the protagonist decides to become Santans slave just like the woman. Finally in the blood waters of dr. Z, the woman walks into the sea after the evil fish man scientist. Conspiracy!

You know...if the movie gave any indication of WHY getting bit by a bat caused him to convulse and turn into a bat-headed human being, it would actually be a lot better. But there's nothing to explain it! He's acting weird BEFORE he gets bit by a bat. He keeps trying to get the anti-rabies serum for some reason. He starts needing blood...for some reason. Why? And why is it transmitted? I keep thinking that it might actually have been slightly creepy with a little bit of reason behind all the incomprehensibles.

The random unconscious body convulsions that cant be remembered are never suggested to be SEIZURES? Although, he did seem to be conscious of the one in the doctors office after the shot..
