Maria and Freida Gellhorn, two identital twins, visit their uncle Gustav
Weil. Weil happens to be the leader of a witch-hunting group known as
the Brotherhood. Meanwhile, the newest Count Karnstein is a practioner
of the Black arts. One evening, the Count tries to summon up Satan
himself by sacrificing a young girl. The blood of the young girl finds
its way to Mircalla’s coffin, and the Vampiress is revived. Karnstein
is attacked by Mircalla and transformed into a vampire. The
newly-turned-vampire-Count then bites Freida, turning her into one of
the undead like himself. The Count then makes it appear as though Maria
is the vampire and places her in the danger of being beheaded. In the
process of saving her sister, Freida is decapitated by her own uncle.
The Count then captures Maria and murders Weil with an axe, only to be
impaled by a silver lance.
