 The original title of this Italian flick was SEDDOK, L'EREDE DI SATANA, which means Seddok, The Heir Of Satan which makes a little more sense than the English dubbed title since there are no vampires in this at all except for this one bat who appears on the title screen who might be a vampire. What you do get is a sort of variation on the old EYES WITHOUT A FACE tale of a lady who gets some horrible facial scars in a car wreck and then hooks up with a mad-scientist-type of a fellow who helps her with her facial problems by extracting cells from ladies that he kills. He also uses atomic energy for this which makes at least half of the title make sense. Also for some reason he turns into a crud-faced monster halfway through the movie to aid in his lady-stalking. All in all this an OK mash-up of weird story elements that always seemed more like one of those crazy Mexican monster movies than anything very Italian but I guess in the early 60's a lot of these foreign horror flicks were kinda similar. 
 The producer credit here is for someone named Mario Fava which seems like a weird misspelling of Mario Bava but I'm not sure if that's true or not.
 The version I watched of this was 86 minutes. There's also a 101 minute version, that I haven't seen, which includes a scene with the mad doctor killing a lady in a bath tub among other things.
