Scientist Edward Armstrong is so keen to experiment the new drug he has made from a mould he found at his girlfriend’s ancestral home at Salem, the very place where a woman was convicted and hung for being a witch and killing children – that he gathers a group of scientists and all of them take it to see the effects. He believes the drug is a relaxant but the reality is something else entirely.
