Notorious troublemakers the Eastside Kids (Leo Gorcey, Bobby Jordan, Huntz Hall, 'Sunshine' Sammy Morrison, David Gorcey, Donald Haines) are forced to spend their holidays in a camp in the country ... and their first thought is of course escape - even though they know the monster killer is on the prowl in this neighbourhood.

So, late one night they bail out and, to cut some corners, cross a cemetary. However, someone shoots at them and hits one of them, Pee Wee (David Gorcey). The kids drag their wounded friend to the next house and ask for help - but unfortunately it is the haunted house of Nardo (Bela Lugosi), who lives there with his midget assistant Luigi (Angelo Rossitto). Before long, the kids are convinced that Nardo is indeed the monster killer, and when Pee Wee all of a sudden rises from his sick bed as if in trance, the kids are scared shitless, but nevertheless decide to fight Nardo and get Pee Wee back to normal.

Meanwhile at the camp, the camp's head Jeff (Dave O'Brien) doesn't give a damn if the boys have gone missing or not, only his girlfriend, the camp nurse Linda (Dorothy Short) seems to care for them and goes looking for them on her own, despite the fact that the monster killer is still at large (weirdly enough, her boyfriend Jeff doesn't care much about that either). Soon though, Linda is picked up by a certain Doctor Von Grosch (Dennis Moore), who promises to help her look for the boys ... and soon enough, the two of them too arrive at the haunted house.

Meanwhile the boys have defeated Nardo and tied him up, when they stumble upon Pee Wee, who is alive and couldn't be better. It now turns out that Nardo isn't the monster killer at all but merely a stage magician who has just rented the place to study some new routines.

And wouldn't you know it, the monster killer really is Von Grosch, who has meanwhile cornered Linda elsewhere in the haunted house ... but in the end, it's the boys who save her ...

 

Very weak horror comedy that works neither as a horror film nor as a comedy ... and what's worse, it announces its surprise ending way too soon. Forgettable.
