  • A skeptical college professor discovers that his wife has been practicing magic for years. Like the learned, rational fellow he is, he forces her to destroy all her magical charms and protective devices, and stop that foolishness.

  • Professor Norman Taylor teaches at Hempnell Medical College. He's quite good and has earned the respect of his colleagues. Some of the wives don't quite feel the same about his wife Tansy however. Norman is quite shocked to learn that Tansy has been practicing witchcraft since he'd had an accident two years before in Jamaica. Tansy is convinced that it's her witchcraft that saved him. He thinks it's all nonsense and destroys all of her paraphernalia, including a small photo of himself Tansy kept in a locket. Soon after, Norman's world begins to fall apart. One of his students accuses him of molesting her and as a result another student threatens him with a gun. When evil spirits try to take him, Tansy decides that she will die in his place. He races to save her but Tansy isn't isn't the only practitioner of witchcraft.

One day, he finds lots of amulets and witchcraft in his house, and he decides to destroy all of them.
