Horror. In 1830s Bavaria, the mad Baron Zorn keeps his grown-up children Elizabeth and Emil locked up in ajacent rooms in the family mansion, where his sister Hilda bleeds them, leaving them too weak to escape. He enlists the services of a discredited scientist from Vienna, who attempts to cure them of the insanity which the baron fears he has transmitted to them despite having married a peasant girl of pure blood, but Carl, a more orthodox young doctor, believes the patients simply need rescuing from the baron's care. Meanwhile, someone has been killing blonde young women in the local countryside.
