The Vampire's Ghost is a 1945 horror film directed by Lesley Selander. In the African town of Bakunda, there have been several murders in a single month. All of the victims have strange puncture marks on their necks, and they appear to be drained of blood. The natives believe it is the work of a vampire, so they begin to leave wealthy Roy Hendrick's (Charles Gordon) plantation to find work elsewhere. Although Roy does not believe in vampires, he unknowingly befriends one -- Webb Fallon (John Abbott), a local bar owner who has been alive for hundreds of years. As a series of strange events occur in Webb's presence, Roy and his servants begin to suspect that he is indeed a vampire. When Webb sets his sights on Roy's beautiful fiance, Julie (Peggy Stewart), Roy and the native Africans must work together to save the girl and to destroy the evil bloodsucker.
