Widow Verden Fell is apparently haunted by his late wife, Ligeia, in the form of a black cat. When he meets local noblewoman the Lady Rowena, he is struck by her resemblance to Ligeia. They decide to get married, but this only makes the haunting worse, and Fell starts to be mysteriously absent at night. It also appears that Ligeia may no longer be buried in her tomb.
