Lester Paley is framed for a murder he did not commit. He dies in the electric chair, but it’s all a set-up. He is only stunned by the electricity and proclaimed dead by a bribed doctor. The criminal undertaker Anson claims his body and “revives” Paley in his laboratory. He is made to believe that he can only continue living by taking Anson’s drugs. Anson commands Paley to kill the judge. Paley, however, comes to his senses, realizes that Anson framed him in the first place and takes revenge.
