***SPOILERS*** In the movie "Scream and Scream Again" you actually get two bad movies for the price of one. #1. A Vampire-like serial murder Kieth, Michael Gothand, is on the loose in England killing and sucking the blood out of young ladies that he picks up in the local Go-Go nightclubs. #2. A mad scientist Dr. Browning, Vincent Price, working in league with the chief of intelligence of the UK Fremont, Christopher Lee, who's also in some kind of alliance with the head of the secret police Konratz, Marshall Jones, of some unknown Eastern-European communist country.

Kieth is trapped in his murderous actions when the local police have a decoy police woman Sylvia, Judy Huxtable, pose as one of his potential victims. Picking Sylvia up at a local club, that features the live repetitive and monotonous music of a group called The Amen Corner, Kieth and his new girlfriend are followed by the police to this lover lane where he, after giving Sylvia a big smooch, starts to bite into her and starts sucking out her blood.

The police lead by Supt. Bellaver, Alfred Marks, comes to Sylvia's rescue only to have Kieth break away from them and lead them on a long car and foot chase. When Kieth is captured by the cops he hacks off his right hand, that was handcuffed to a police car, to get away and continue his mad dash to what seems like nowhere. Finally trapped at the Dr. Browning estate Kieth jumps into a vat of acid, that just happened to be there in a deserted barn, and kills himself.

Dr. Browning who comes on the scene of this insanity seems to be totally unmoved at all by this bazaar behavior of, what turned out to be, one of his subjects. We now begin to realize what happened to the jogger at the start of the movie who ended up in a hospital, after he suffered what looked like a heart-attack.The jogger then ended up having his legs arms and later even head amputated. Dr. Browning it turns out is constructing a master-race made out of human spare parts that resulted in the somehow murderous and superhuman-like Kieth and that he himself, and those who work for him, are; not really human beings but Frankenstein-like monsters themselves made out of human remains.

Things start to go bad when back in the unnamed Eastern-European country where Konratz, another one of Dr. Brownings creations, starts to get really bad toward the local inhabitants, who are starting to revolt in the streets, with his brutal and sadistic torture of them. Konratz is called into his superior Benedek, Peter Cushing, office and told that he's being canned from his post as head of the country's secret police.

Konratz trying to talk Benedek out of firing him gives him a deadly love-tap on his left shoulder that ends up killing him and thus replace Benedek as chief of the secret police. Later Konratz travels to England to talk turkey with his fellow pieced-together member of Dr. Brownings master race Fremont about this U-2 spy planes English pilot who was shot down over his country. Told that he'll have the pilot released if all the evidence about the vampire-killer, Kieth, is handed over to him. Fremont agrees to have that done but somehow Supt. Bellaver didn't get the news yet and that cost him his life.

Konratz going to Dr. Browning's place to shut down his human spare parts operation, it's starting to get out of hand, has it out with the mad doctor who ends up dumping him in a vat of acid killing him only to have Fremont show up and finish the job that Konratz started. Idiotic movie that is the only film where the top three British horror masters, Vincent Price Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing, were ever in together with Cushing only in the movie for one scene where he immediately killed off.
