Victor Lichtenstein (JOSEF HEILBURGER) is a promising young neurosurgeon living in the 12th century B.C. Devastated by the second consecutive death of his mother who was mauled by a flock of reanimated lions of his own creation, Lichtenstein becomes obsessed with bringing the undead back to life again. His experiments result in the design of a machine of hideous disfigurement crafted from parts of fallen sentries and the mind of the most brilliant scientist to ever scrape the bottom of a grave, Baron Von Tesilia.
Victor and his "lab" partner, Ighor (DELL CONAGHER), carry the monster to the peak of a thundering mountain where they might harness the power of lightning itself to ignite the spark of life into the abominable appliance. It is there that Victor shouts the words that cemented Dr. Lichtenstein's House of Scary Stuff's place as one of the most influential horror films in the history of horror cinema for the duration of September of 1952: "It's alive-ish! It's kind of alive-ish!"
