Horrorfest 2022 Presents I Like Bats (1986, Grzegorz Warchoł)


I Like Bats is one of those artsy foreign horror movies that often tries to be more than just a horror movie. In this case it’s a vampire flick that’s also a love story and a case of vampire driven insanity, I guess. I’ve seen way better foreign artsy horror movies than this one, and I’m starting to think my rating for this movie was too high. There’s some good scenes, yes, and I liked the ending despite the final scene being a tad obvious, although it did amuse me a little.

Katarzyna Walter is a woman that works in her aunt’s shop and feeds on people. After meeting Marek Barbasiewicz’s psychiatrist by happy chance she falls in love with him. This leads to her attempting to be cured by him, which has some interesting results. There is one scene at a party that is one of the film’s highlights, and the movie does wisely zig and zag at times. I don’t know if I would have viewed this if it hadn’t been on Shudder, which has a pretty good collection of foreign cinema.
