Veronica is a British tourist who is stranded in a remote village with her husband Philip while honeymooning in Transylvania. They meet a descendant of legendary vampire-hunter Count von Helsing, who reveals that the town is haunted by a satanic curse. A mysterious car accident plunges Veronica into a nearby lake, but when her body is removed, it resembles that of the legendary “Witch of the Lake”. Reawakened from her slumber, the blister-faced hag, armed with sickle and claws, rises from the makeshift morgue and unleashes her vengeance upon the descendants of those who executed her centuries earlier. While the bumbling Soviet authorities stumble over themselves to solve the murders, Philip joins forces with von Helsing to capture the witch and put and end to the dreadful curse.
