High school students Johnny, Gail and Danny decide to explore the "haunted" Banshee Cave. A group of saboteurs is using the cave as a hideout.

The Green Mask eventually defeats all of the saboteurs and kills Dr. Baum.

Indexer Notes

It is never stated that the saboteurs are Nazis, but their names (Karl, Otto, Dr. Baum) suggest this is the case.
