Movie-A-Day #107: The Bat People (1974).
Today is Bat Appreciation Day. But what about people who get bitten by rabid bats and then turn into bats themselves, like in the thoroughly depressing ’70s schlockfest “The Bat People”? Don’t they deserve love too? I actually saw this movie on TV as a kid and I still vividly recall being creeped out by the final scene in which all the bats splat themselves onto the car windshield. I didn’t know the name of the movie or anything else about it until I watched it again as an adult and was surprised to find that the scene I remembered so well was there.
