In this one Peter Cushing plays the baron with his usual seriousness, avoiding tongue-in-the-cheek, and he is the main prop in the proceedings.

In this one Peter Cushing plays the baron with his usual seriousness, avoiding tongue-in-the-cheek, and he is the main prop in the proceedings.

This time Cushing returns to the castle which is his scientific playground and is bent on reviving and co-ordinating the brain of one of his homemade monsters. Earlier this character had escaped, but is found, conveniently preserved in a glacier. The baron has sundry other problems on his plate, notably a drunken, blackmailing hypnotist, a deaf and dumb beggar girl, the local Burgomaster and the police, but keeps a fairly stiff upper lip throughout.
