In a laboratory beneath the castle, Callistratus and his hunchbacked assistant Carl (Victor Maddern) submit inmates and young women to cruel experiments in blood transfusion. Outside the castle, Pierre's fianc�e Madeleine (Barbara Shelley) determines to rescue him, but they both end up at Callistratus' mercy. The bloodthirsty doctor will stop at nothing to cure his debilitating condition, even if it means others must die so that he may live...
