Robert Kraft (Richard Boone) is the newly appointed chairman of a committee that oversees a colossal cemetery. The cemetery is so large that a map is kept in the cemetery office displaying the grounds and each gravesite. Filled graves are marked by black pins and unoccupied but sold graves are marked with white pins. New to the position and unobservant, Kraft accidentally places a pair of black pins where they don’t belong, only to discover later that the young couple who had bought the gravesites in question died in an automobile accident soon afterwards.
The plot begins on August 10th in a California drive-in theatre, and concerns a killer on the loose, with the victims beheaded with a large sword.
Of course you would honeymoon in Transylvania and crash your car into a lake. It would be the same lake where a witch drown. Then the witch takes over your wife’s body and you have to recruit a weird descendant of Van Helsing to save her. Not the best day.
