Summary
Dr. Larry Forbes, an American scientist, arrives in France to meet his fiancée Madeline Renault, the niece of scientist Dr. Renault. Forbes is greeted by Noel, Dr. Renault's peculiar assistant -- who also has affections for Madeline. When a series of unexpected murders occur -- including one the police believe was intended for Forbes -- the American scientist is horror-struck by a most unnerving realization: Noel is a half-man, half-ape created by Dr. Renault
