Bat out of hell

Posted by Alias on March 09, 2004

The phrase 'he ran like a bat out of hell' is it correct or am I missing a few words in it. For some reason I keep thinking that I need to add something like 'he shot out of....like a bat out of hell'

Can someone please tell me what the phrase actually is, its meaning and origin(if possible)
