Horror to make your hair stand on end!

Bela Lugosi revels in his role as European horiculturalist Dr. Lorenz in this outlandish tale of horror and dementia. Dr. Lorenz aging wife Countess Lorenz needs fluids harvested from the glands of young virgins in order to retain her eternal youth and beauty. What better place for the Dr. Lorenz to maintain his supply of young virgins than at the alter, where her kidnaps the unsuspecting brides before they can complete their vows.

Sedating them into a coma-like state with a strong smelling rare flower corset. Dr. Lorenz then brings the brides to his mansion to inject the fluids into his wife. Bela Lugosi is at his devilish best in this film and it is a 1940’s B-Movie classic.

Trivia:
Dwarf Angelo Rossitti one of “Dr. Lorenzs” henchmen also stared in Tod Browning “Freaks”.
