Atom Age Vampire

Don't let the title fool you - there's no actual vampire in this movie (plenty of atoms though). This is a not-so-great film about a doctor who murders for science/horniness. One interesting (insensitive) thing is that the Doc murders people near the port, where hundreds of refugees from Hiroshima are arriving. It's the oldest Western movie that I know of to reference the real human horror of the atomic bombings of Japan. Too bad it's in such a shitty movie.
