China 1906. Sir Alexander Saxton has found a humanoid fossil which he believes to be the 'missing link'. Put aboard the Trans-Siberian Express, the creature comes back to life and commences to kill the train's occupants, draining their brains of memory. Killing the creature, Saxton performs an autopsy and discovers that the creature actually came from another planet and became trapped in the body of the 'missing link'. The creature, however, has already moved from the body of the 'missing link' and begins to inhabit the bodies of a series of other passengers. Saxton, upon discovering whom the creature is inhabiting, manages to uncouple the car containing the creature, which plunges over a cliff.
