Desperate to retrive a winning lottery ticket, a greedy baron unearths his father's corpse. An enormous jackpot is his reward, but not without a price: his face is frozen permanently into a hideous grin. He enlists his fiendish one-eyed servant to help him lift this horrible curse, but their schemes fail. Finally, he turns to a noted neurpsurgeon - and his wife's former lover - to cure him. This creepy horror classic is based on a novella by screenwriter Ray Russell, and is brought to life by William Castle, master of terror!
