Synopsis
In 1040, Scottish rebels kill Prince James, the heir to the English throne. However, his spirit does not move on but instead kills his assassins and is somehow trapped in the castle. Nine hundred years later, the castle is taken apart and shipped to the U.S.. A U-boat sinks the ship carrying the castle and frees James’ ghost, who uses his nearly limitless powers to insure others do not die a death similar to his.
