As - once again - something spooky is going on at yet another abandoned mansion, police inspector Robbins (Johnny Carpenter) is ordering detective Bradford (Duke Moore) with him, even though Bradford is dressed to go to the opera ... & to add insult to injury, Robbins sends the incapable cop Kelton (Paul Marco) with him.

Once having arrived at the mansion, Bradford is welcomed by the sinister mystic Dr Acula (Kenne Duncan), whose speciality it is - as he claims - to speak to the dead. Bradford is not at all convinced, but he decides to play along to find out more.

He soon witnesses one of Acula's seances, with all the usual elements like a floating bedsheet, a floating trumpet (ok, so that's not too usual), skeletons sitting at the table, & even a dead man rising from his coffin to give his wife advice ...

Bradford is not at all convinced & guesses (correctly, as it will turn out) it's only a scam to relieve some rich but gullible clients of their money. In an unguarded moment, Bradford slips away & goes backstage to uncover the workings of Acula's scam ... but is overcome by Acula's monstrous strongman Lobo (Tor Johnson), who soon locks him up.

Kelton, having waited on the outside the mansion & called for backup, soon goes after Bradford ... but he too is overcome by Lobo, even though he pumps half a dozen slugs into him.

Soon our 2 cop-heroes can escape though, & backup finally arrives & manages to put Lobo down for good. But when they go after Acula & his assistant (Valda Hansen), dubbed the White Ghost, but really just a very human woman, they have escaped through a back door ... that unfortunately led them through Acula's private mortuary ... & unbeknowest to himself, he has really raised the dead ... who now take great joy in killing him before turning to dust & bones ... & the White Ghost , who indeed makes it out of the house, is killed by the Black Ghost (Jeannie Stevens) - a real ghost, incidently.


To make his first full blown horror film, Ed Wood uses (& overuses) every horror cliché in the book, turning his pulp story into an overblown camp experience ... that one just can't help but love for its sheer daring & outrageousness.
