A series of murders, committed by a hooded man, occur in a ghost town. Marge, a young waitress whose brother Joey was driven mad by the killer, goes with her student friends Ken and David to the ghost town to help solve the crimes. After finding Crazy Bill, caretaker of the town, impaled in the cemetery, David and Marge go for the sheriff, while Ken stays behind in hope of catching the murderer. The hooded man comes out of hiding, attacks Ken, and buries him alive, causing him to die of fright. After David and Marge return, the hooded man knocks David unconscious and carries Marge to an old mine shaft. The sheriff arrives, rescues David and Marge, and kills the hooded man. He is identified by Joey as Wesley Blake, Marge's boss, an ex-ventriloquist in vaudeville, obsessed with the desire to protect Marge.
