The psychic Criswell emerges from his coffin, sort of announcing the movie we are going to see. Next we see Criswell (in one of Bela Lugosi's used capes) as the Emperor of the Dead, residing in a graveyard and calling all of the dead to the fore to have a feast and to judge over them. The feast/judgement is pretty much a string of strippers (Pat Barrington, Mickey Jines, Barbara Noridin, Bunny Glaser], [Dadejda Dobrev, Coleen O'Brien, Texas Starr, Rene De Beau, Stephanie Jones, Dene Starnes), dressed up as different characters, doing their routine in a graveyard set.

Now that wouldn't be much story for a 90-minute feature film, so enter writer Bob (William Bates) and his girlfriend Shirley (Pat Barrington, who is also one of the strippers, in a different wig), who want to visit a graveyard at night, but have a car accident. Somehow they survive the crash, and they decide to pay the graveyard a visit anyhow, only to see one strip act after another ... and for some reason they come to the conclusion that these strippers aren't human (even if I came to the totally opposite conclusion, seeing these girls in all of their naked - well at least topless, this is the mid-1960's - glory).

Eventually, Bob and Shirley are caught by the Emperor's henchmen, the mummy (Louis Ojena) and the wolfman (John Andrews), tied up and forced (?) to watch some more strip acts. Then the Emperor's second-in-command, the Black Ghoul (Fawn Silver) wants to have her way with them. But before she can do the couple any harm, sun rises, and the Black Ghoul as well as all other dead dissolve to dust, only their skeletons remaining ...

We are back at the site of Bob and Shirley's crash. The medics arrive and find both of them to be alive and only slightly bruised. It was all just a dream ... but was it ?

 

A mix of horror and sex so bad it's almost good: The dialogue, scripted by Ed Wood, is (unintentionally) hilarious, made all the funnier by the lack of talent the actors provide, Criswell as Emperor of the Dead hams it up in a very weird sort of way (after all, he wasn't a professional actor, the sets are all wonderfully cheap and the costumes worn (or not worn) by the strippers are delightfully cheapish. Of course this all adds up to a piece of trash, no more no less ... but a very enjoyable one, too.

Watch it if you want to have a laugh - and at least most of the girls actually look pretty nice in various states of undress.
