On the run yet again, Baron Frankenstein, with his assistant Hans, returns to his castle, only to find it derelict and all his belongings confiscated by the Burgomaster. Then, by chance, a beggar girl leads him to a cave in the mountains where he finds his creature, perfectly preserved in the ice. He manages to revive it, but needs the services of hypnotist Zoltan to reactivate the brain. Unfortunately, however, the creature will now only react to Zoltan’s voice and he plans to use it for his own greedy and vengeful ends!
