Synopsis

Two identical twins arrive in the small village of Karnstein. One of them is good, the other is bad. The evil twin is initiated into a vampire cult, and a number of deaths sweep the area. The twins' guardian - the puritanical Gustav Weil (Peter Cushing) - leads witch hunts and vows to end the threat of vampirism. The evil twin is captured by Weil and ordered to be burned, but the deadly Count Karnstein swops the girls over and it is the innocent Maria who is set to face the flames...
