El Vampiro negro is an Argentinian remake of Fritz Lang's classic film M. This film, however, is not a shot-for-shot remake. Teodoro Ulber, known as The Professor, is on trial for murder. After his attorney asks for confinement to a mental institution and the prosecutor counters with a plea for the death penalty, we are shown in flashback how Ulber got to this point. Outside a dance hall, a short, portly figure drags the body of a little girl from a worn sack and throws it down a sewage shaft. The next day, a homeless man, deep within the sewer tunnels of the city, comes across the body. He alerts the police, who toss him in jail as a possible suspect and then conduct a manhunt (that's what you get for being socially conscious, but also a social outcast ... But Ulber's actions didn't go unseen. Through a window in the basement of a dance hall, a young performer spied the wretched little man. 

DVD-R is in Spanish with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 92 mins.  See film samples for sound and video quality!
