Weird playwright Sebastian Sly, author of such all-time bombs as Dial M for Morose, The Cat and the Canard, and Ten Little Ninjas, lives in a creepy old mansion called The Shadows

His arch enemy is the clever, but snide, drama critic Sylvia Frye. She hates stage thrillers and with her ruthless reviews, has forced Sebastian into retirement

In revenge, Sebastian invites her to his home where all manner of chills and thrills are trotted out to convince her she's wrong about his work

We meet an hilarious cast - The murderous Creeper; an old actress noted for her shattering screams; a butler named Skull and a housekeeper named Bones and that's just the beginning

Two likeable innocents, Zip and Lilac, show up and are terrorized by the insane goings-on
