Horror that's more camp than shock. A botched guillotine trick left the wife/assistant of magician Duke Duquesne without her head and baby daughter Cassie without her mother. When The Great Duquesne dies 20 years later, his will states that his estranged daughter must spend seven nights in his creepy mansion to inherit. Accompanied by reporter (and wannabe beau) Val, Cassie might just die of fright since the crazy magician has left a lot of surprises behind. Final music score for composer Max Steiner.
