their kindly village doctor.
No one suspected that in his home
laboratory on a hillside over-
looking the magnificent estate
of Martin Heath, the doctor
found time to conduct certain
private experiments â€” weird,
terrifying experiments."The story involves a small town cosmetic company chemist Dr. Paul Carruthers (Bela Lugosi) who is upset at his wealthy employers, because he feels they have denied him his due share of company success. To get revenge, he breeds giant bats. He then conditions them to kill those wearing a special after-shave lotion he has concocted. He cleverly distributes the lotion to his enemies as a "test" product.
