Plot Sypnosis:

With his 1962 film The Awful Dr Orlof, director Jess Franco laid the ground work for the Spanish horror boom that was to follow later in that decade. 20 years on, he revisited his classic to create this chilling and macabre follow up. The Sinister Dr. Orloff features the original doctor - played by Howard Vernon - with Antonio Mayans as his son, Alfred. The film is set amongst the bright neon lights and gaudy tourist attractions of Alicante, on Spain's Costa Blanca. Alfred Orloff cruises the bustling nighttime streets, seeking out women, whom he takes back to his empty apartment. There he drugs them and has his blind brother, Andros, carry them off to a secret laboratory where Orloff has created a strange and bizarre mind transference machine, hoping to transfer the consciousness of the captive women into the body of his comatose mother. Orloff's father, played by Howard Vernon, becomes aware that his son is starting to enjoy these murderous night games and decides that he must stop the deadly experiments that are being conducted in his name. But when Inspector Tanner's wife becomes the next victim, events take a tragic and unexpected turn.
