Anthropologist Emmanuel Hildern (Peter Cushing) returns from New Guinea with the skeleton of an early human. When placed in water, flesh grows over the bones, and Emmanuel develops a serum from the blood in hopes that it will cure evil. He tries it on his insane daughter, but it has quite the opposite affect. Emmanuel's brother, James (Christopher Lee), steals the skeleton, rain falls on the bones, and an evil being terrorizes the area. A good period piece with two great masters of the genre.
