Synopsis:
Having learned of the sudden death of his sister Elizabeth (Barbara Steele), Francis Barnard (John Kerr) sets out to the castle of his brother-in-law, Nicholas Medina (Vincent Price), to uncover the cause of her untimely demise. A distraught, grief-stricken Nicholas can offer only the vaguest explanations as to Elizabeth's death - at first citing "something in her blood", but later asserting that she quite literally "died of fright". What sort of unspeakable horrors are buried within the walls of this castle that could cause one's heart to stop so? With Francis determined to get to the bottom of this mystery, the terrible truth will not stay buried for long.
