Summary
  • Brides of Dracula: "Marianne is traveling to Eastern Europe from Paris for a teaching post. She gets stranded at an inn after her stagecoach mysteriously leaves her. She is persuaded to stay at Baroness Meinster's chateau. During her stay Marianne meets the Baroness's son who is chained to a wall. Feeling bad for the son, Marianne frees him, only to discover that he is a vampire. Luckily for her, Dr. Van Helsing is on his way to rescue Marianne and destroy the vampire."
  • The curse of the werewolf: "Leon is a werewolf--half-man, half-beast, who loves by day and kills by night. This maniacal tale of terror follows the life of Leon from his innocent youth to his deadly adulthood. Try as he might, Leon is unable to control the dark forces within him and when the moon is full, he becomes an uncontrollable killer beast who terrorizes the town."
  • Phantom of the opera: "Strange events have been occurring at a London opera house. When tragedy strikes during an opening night performance, it becomes clear that the events are not accidents. It is the work of the Phantom. Then Christine, the young new star of the opera, is abducted by the Phantom who turns out to be a disfigured brilliant composer himself. The producer, worried about his star, starts to investigate the Phantom's secret lair and soon discovers the Phantom's plan of revenge against the owner of the opera house."
  • Paranoiac: "Simon is a psychotic man who is driving his sister, Eleanor, insane, so that he can inherit the estate of their dead parents. But when a mysterious man, who claims to be a long-lost relative, saves Eleanor from committing suicide, Simon's plans are thwarted. Simon vows to get revenge on the impostor and take care of his sister in the process."
  • The kiss of the vampire: "On their honeymoon, Gerald and Marianne take a wrong turn and end up in a remote european village. They are welcomed into the castle of Count Ravna, who turns out to be a vampire. When the count and his vampire cult kidnap Marianne, Gerald must ally with the reclusive vampire hunter Professor Zimmer, to rescuse Marianne and destroy the vampire sect."
  • Nightmare: "As a child, Janet witnessed her insane mother stab her father to death. Now as a young student, she has horrible dreams of her mother locked in an insane asylum. The dreams have gotten so bad that the boarding school sends her home. But neither her guardian Henry nor her friend Grace can help Janet stop the nightmares. Are Janet's problems in her head, will she go crazy like her own mother? Sometimes when you wake up, the nightmare is just beginning."
  • Night creatures: "Captain Collier and his band of sailors show up to an English coastal town to investigate reports of 'marsh phantoms' who ride by night spreading terror to the town. The Captain suspects that the local reverend might be hiding sometihing. Are the phantoms genuine or a cover for illegal smuggling activities? Who knows the truth about the curse of Captain Clegg?"
  • The evil of Frankenstein: "On the run from irate villagers for his unorthodox experiments, Dr. Frankenstein and his assistant Hans uncover his original creature, long though destroyed, preserved in ice. While resurrecting the monster in his new laboratory, Dr. Frankenstein discovers that its brain is dormant. Only Zoltan, a mystical hypnotist, can revive the monster. But Zoltan uses the creature for his own selfish purposes and unleashes a violent chain of events."
