Boris Karloff and Charles Laughton star in this Gothic horror film based on a short story by Robert Louis Stevenson. Unable to get over losing the hand of his beloved to his brother Edmund (Paul Cavanagh) two decades earlier, malicious madman Alain de Maletroit (Laughton) sets out to wreak his revenge by forcing his niece Blanche (Sally Forrest) to marry convicted murderer Dennis de Beaulieu (Richard Wyler). Karloff plays Alain's meek, browbeaten servant Voltan, who tries to help Denis and Blanche escape from Voltan's evil clutches.
