A group of scientists from the 18th century stay alive by killing young women and taking their "life force". These scientists are running a women's prison so they have an endless supply of victims.
Victor Jory is Murdoch, the head scientist. Charlotte Austin is beautiful as the social worker who suspects something funny is going on and Bill Hudson is a state investigator who is called in when the death rate gets too high at the prison.
Friedrich von Ledebur is rather creepy as the silent Eric. It is he who kidnaps the women and even though he never says a word, his role is the highlight of the film.
The rest of the cast for this little gem includes Ann Doran, Jean Willes, Paul Cavanagh, Tina Carver and Barbara Wilson.
It is good to see this finally get a DVD release and the print from Mill Creek is excellent. Recommended!!
