Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Culturally it may be most noteworthy for its title arch-criminal, who influenced the creation of Batman."
‑ Fred Camper, Chicago Reader
"The Bat Whispers is a talkie remake of Roland West's silent 1926 version."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"There's no doubting the sincerity or intention of The Bat Whispers, only how well it's aged."
‑ Michael Nordine, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"An essential, with every genre mainstay imaginable-a creepy old isolated mansion, a deranged killer on the loose, secret passages, thunder-and-lightning, etc."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
