Deep Dimension Horror - "Stake Out!"
Barbara Irons is an actress playing a vampire who is actually killed and turned by a real vampire in Transylvania. She feeds on a little boy and his father vows to never stop pursuing her. Years later she decides to move to America and go back into acting. She never looks older so she continues to get starring roles. She signs on with a producer who insists on realism so he only films at night. And because she feeds on people in the surrounding area, her films always get good publicity. Unfortunately for her, her producer replaces Peter Cushing with a real vampire hunter from Europe. When he kills her he asks the camera "There! Was that real enough for you?" This issue also reprints 'The Year of the Bat' from 'Adventures into the Unknown' Vol. 1 No. 52 (American Comics Group, February 1954) but it has been retitled as 'Hong Kong Horror.' While taking Norma Stanhope home from a date Chris sees a vampire fly out of a house. When he gets there he finds a man dying who then becomes a vampire. Chris kills him and they go to tell Norma's father (the head of military intelligence) what is going on. When they get to his house they see a vampire coming out and they shoot and kill him. It turns out to be Major Stanhope in disguise so Norma tells Chris about the top secret investigation that her dad was a part of. They find out that the Reds have moved an ancient Mandarin Vampire tomb to Hong Kong and that is where the vampires are coming from. When they go to see the Major's informant Kang they are too late to save him but they manage to get the compound the Reds are using to protect themselves from the vampires. They increase the strength of the compound and use it to turn the vampire into a harmless bat.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
