THE MOST TERRIFYING MONSTER EVER! (original print ad – all caps)
The grave can’t hold it …nothing human can stop it!
It rose from the crypt to slake its monstrous thirst for beauty … and the power to rule the earth!

A psychically gifted young woman discovers a centuries-old crate buried on her aunt’s ranch. Opening it, her family discovers the living head of Gideon Drew, a 16th-century devil worshiper who was beheaded by Sir Francis Drake.

—Jeremy Lunt (

A 400-year-old disembodied head hypnotizes a female psychic, who recovered it using a dowsing rod, to search for the rest of its body.

Synopsis: Spoilers?
We open with a long shot of the McIntyre Ranch in California. Flavia McIntyre (Peggy Converse), and her ranch hands Boyd (James Anderson) and Mike (Charles Horvath) accompany her niece, Jessica (Carolyn Kearney) as she looks for water. Jessica is a water witch and her divining stick is searching for a new vein of water for the ranch. Three guests arrive on horseback. Gordon (William Reynolds), Linda (Andra Martin), and Hank (Jeffrey Stone) express disbelief and disapproval at Jessica’s superstition and childish behavior. Annoyed, Jessica resumes her search for water and finds something. No sooner have Boyd and Mike begun to dig, Jessica changes her mind and admonishes them not to dig as “there’s something evil down there.” Flavia overrules her niece and orders her ranch hands to continue to dig. Jessica leaves in a huff but foretells dire consequences. “I hope a tree falls on you.” No sooner has she made this pronouncement when a bough of a nearby tree snaps off and almost kills Linda? They take Linda back to the guest cabins to recover. She wasn’t seriously hurt, in her words, “more frightened than hurt.” Jessica expresses remorse, but Linda assures her that it wasn’t her fault. Jessica is convinced she caused it. Linda asks her about her gift, and Jessica explains she always had the gift to find things: not just water. Gordon, Hank, and Linda continue to disbelieve her, so she directs them to where to find Linda’s missing watch. She tells them they will find Linda’s watch in a trade rat’s nest at the base of the old oak tree near Linda’s cabin.

Plot: Spoilers?
Jessica Burns (Carolyn Kearney), a young woman who claims to have psychic powers, lives on a remote dude ranch with her Aunt Flavia (Peggy Converse). An ancient box is discovered while digging a well discovered by Jessica while dowsing. Against Jessica’s warnings, her Aunt takes it back to their house. Gordon (William Reynolds), a young man who has shown interest in Jessica, goes for an archaeologist, arguing the box should be kept intact for appraisal and opening by an expert. However, the Aunt’s greedy ranch foreman, anticipating treasure, secretly convinces the slow-witted handyman to break it open. Instead, the box contains the intact head of Gideon Drew (Robin Hughes), a man executed for sorcery 400 years earlier. The head awakens and telepathically takes over the mentally vulnerable handyman.

After murdering the foreman, the head has the handyman conceal it while arranging to have a coffin retrieved containing Gideon’s body. After the handyman helps the head take control of a young woman (Andra Martin) staying at the ranch, it drives him to approach police in a threatening manner holding the knife that killed the foreman. The police had arrived to investigate the theft of the box’s remains and the blood left behind from the killing of the foreman. Failing to stop, the handyman dies in a hail of police bullets.
