Plot Summary

Young workers are dying because of a mysterious epidemic in a little village in Cornwall. Doctor Thompson is helpless and asks professor James Forbes for help. The professor and his daughter Sylvia travel to Thomson. Terrible things happen soon, beyond imagination or reality. Dead people are seen near an old, unused mine. Late people seem to live suddenly. Professor Forbes presumes that black magic is involved and someone has extraordinary power. He doesn't know how close he is: the dead become alive because of a magic voodoo-ritual, and so they must serve their master as mindless zombies... Written by Matthias Luehr

Goofs After Squire Clive Hamilton catches Sylvia's blood in the glass, he transfers it to a vial. When he does so, it is revealed just how much blood was in the cup. However, there's no way that that much blood could have possibly come from a small wound on her finger. See more »
