New England It was a moonless icy winter night when a violent accident on a lonely New England country road left lovely young Alison Collier lying senseless by her overturned carriage. When she awoke in the grim mansion of Barringer House, a tall powerful man stood by her bedside. He was a doctor, he said. He would take care of her until she was well enough to leave. Alison shivered at the man's voice, but that shivering would have turned into a scream had she known what satanic experiments this man pursued, and the fate that he intended for her.
