The Harcourts during their honeymoon in Bavaria in 1910 are temporarily forced to stay at a semi-derelict hotel in the country. They are invited to the nearby chateau where they narrowly escape becoming the victims of Dr. Ravna, the owner-vampire and his disciples. Gerald Harcourt manages to escape and seeks the help of Professor Zimmer who is working on a formula to destroy the vampires. They rescue Marianne Harcourt and trap Ravna and his disciples in the chateau. Ravna then communicates telepathically with Marianne, putting her into a trance, but the realisation of the formula saves her and the vampires are destroyed.
