Milo wants to kill his sickly old wife so he can get his hands on her wealth. After he strangles her, he finds her will and reads that she wanted to be buried in her family tomb in an exact replica of her bedroom. To satisfy the will in order to get the money from the estate, Milo hires workers to build an exact replica of her bedroom in her family tomb. Turns out his wife wasn't quite dead and when Milo returns to the tomb that night, she commands the rotting remains of her dead family to rise from their coffins and exact revenge on her husband.
