Summary
  • The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958): Baron Frankenstein is saved from the guillotine by his devoted dwarf Fritz, and when they move to Carlsbruck he becomes known as the celebrated Dr. Stein and begins his gruesome experiments, this time transplanting Fritz's brain into his latest creation, a normal healthy body
  • The Snorkel (1958): Paul Decker arranges the perfect murder of his wife. Lightly drugging her into unconsciousness, he then seals the room and fills it with gas appearing to be a suicide while he hides beneath the floorboards using a diving snorkel to breath air from the outside. But he didn't play for his suspicious stepdaughter in this kill or be killed thriller!
  • Never take candy from a stranger (1960): A small town is terrorized by an elderly child molester luring young girls into his mansion with sweets, but no official will stop the perverse man because of his powerful family until it is too late
