Synopsis
Timid Luther is smitten with the lovely Miss Dennis, but she doesn't even know he exists. While in the library, he chances upon a book of black magic. It contains a recipe for a love potion, the cure for Luther's heartache! After experimenting on a cat, Luther slips the potion into Miss Dennis' tea. It doesn't seem to work, and a despondent Luther re-reads the recipe. Oops, it turns out the potion shouldn't be mixed with tea; it could cause horrific results. As Luther plans another attempt with the potion, a hairy, clawed arm reaches for his throat.
