The Return of Doctor X

Time Out says

A brisk B horror, not so much a sequel to Dr X as an imitation of The Walking Dead, with Bogart replacing Karloff as the executed man brought back to zombie life, this time with vampiric lusts to boot, by a doctor (Litel) made up to look like Leslie Banks in The Most Dangerous Game. Directed with some style by Sherman (his first film), but saddled with the usual lame script and designed too much as a vehicle for the routinely breezy reporter hero (Morris), it's worth watching mainly for Bogart's baleful performance. The best moment is his unsettling first appearance, emerging from the depths of Litel's laboratory, pallid in pince-nez, with a white streak in his hair and a white rabbit in his arms.
