Good, creepy fun starring Zucco as yet another mad scientist (he's a professor at a respected university), this time goofing around with an ancient Egyptian gas that turns anyone who sniffs it into a white-faced zombie who must drain living people's heart fluid to survive. Nasty doctor

Zucco gives a dose to his unwitting assistant, Bruce, who ends up shuffling around terrorizing the campus, including his lovely fiancee, Ankers. Nosy reporter Armstrong figures out what's going on and gets killed for his trouble, but eventually Bruce turns on Zucco and gives him a whiff of his own

ancient Egyptian medicine. Bey plays the love interest after Ankers dumps her zombie fiance, and the voice of Lillian Cornell handles "I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls" and "All for Love," the unnecessary musical numbers lip-synced by Ankers.
