Synopsis
Scottish nobleman Glen Murdogh is given a talking black Raven, that keeps repeating the man's name and phrase "The last of the clan. Death comes for another man"! Quickly he learns of his grandfather's death from an attorney and that he has inherited old Murdogh Castle. When the raven kills the attorney, Murdogh flees with the bird to his castle, not knowing that The Heap is already on the estate grounds. When Murdogh is transfixed by a witch to mount the highest point of the castle and jump off, the Heap intervenes, saving the young man's life and dispatching the witch/raven.
