When travelling to the wedding of Ralph (Tod Andrews) and Betty (Wanda McKay), Stella (Louise Currie) is kidnapped by the goons of Doctor Marlow (Bela Lugosi), as have three girls before her, to give the Doctor's wife (Ellen Hall), who has died 22 years ago - but still walks around in a trance occasionally (!?) - much-needed lifeforce with the help of voodoo-priest Nicholas (George Zucco). Betty and Ralph are understandably worried when Stella doesn't show up, and pick up investigations with the local Sheriff (Henry Hall). Eventually, the Sheriff even follows Stella's trail to Doc Marlow's house, but Marlow charms his way out of the situation and comes out above suspicion ...

Then though, Marlow's clumsy assistant Toby (John Carradine) lets Stella, who is now in a deeply tranced state, escape, and eventually she is brought to Ralph and Betty ... but neither they nor the Sheriff can do anything to awake her from her trance-like state ... when Dr Marlow shows up and offers his assistance - and everyone is gullible enough to think nothing of it ... and the next day, Stella is gone again, called back to Marlow by voodoo ...

Ralph and Betty pay a visit to Marlow, who once again is the perfect host, and they are not in the least bit suspicious - until they see his wife Marlow just has assured them has been dead for 22 years sleepwalking (or deadwalking) through the room. Mighty peculiar if you ask me !

Marlow meanwhile has found Betty to be the perfect lifeforce donor for his wife and soon enough calls her to him once more using voodoo. Then he submits her to his lifeforce-transference ritual, but by that time, Ralph and the Sheriff have grown wise to him, enter his place by force and ultimately shoot him. With Marlow dead, all the girls, including Betty and Stella, awaken from their trancelike state and everything's fine as dandy again ...

 

Like most Monogram shockers, this film suffers from a terrible script and a largely unimaginative direction (to be fair, the film has a few creepy moments like when the deceased Mrs Marlow comes down the stairway to everybody's surprise and shock). However, like most Monogram shockers, this one is at the same time a trashy gem for bad movie lovers like me. However, if you're not into bad movies, don't even bother to watch it !!!
