Elizabeth Barnard Medina (Barbara Steele) has died in the prime of life, and her brother, Francis (John Kerr), wants to know why. Elizabeth’s husband, Nicholas (Vincent Price), and her doctor offer differing explanations, but when Francis learns that Nicholas’ mother may have been buried alive, he begins to wonder if his sister met the same fate. And when he comes to believe that Elizabeth’s spirit wanders about Nicholas’ castle, Francis investigates — and is stunned by what he finds.

Plot: Spoilers?
In 1547 Spain, Englishman Francis Barnard (John Kerr) visits the castle of his brother-in-law Nicholas Medina (Vincent Price) to investigate the mysterious silence of his sister Elizabeth (Barbara Steele). Nicholas and his younger sister Catherine (Luana Anders) offer a vague explanation that Elizabeth died from a rare blood disorder six months earlier; Nicholas is evasive when Francis asks for specific details about the disease. Francis vows that he will not leave until he discovers the true circumstances surrounding his sister’s death.

During dinner with the family physician, Dr. Leon (Antony Carbone), Francis again asks about his sister’s death. Dr. Leon tells him that his sister died of massive heart failure, literally “dying of fright”. Francis demands to be shown where Elizabeth died. Nicholas takes him to the castle’s torture chamber. Nicholas reveals that Elizabeth, under the influence of the castle’s “heavy atmosphere”, became obsessed with the chamber’s torture devices. After becoming progressively unbalanced, one day she locked herself into an iron maiden, and died after whispering the name “Sebastian”. Francis refuses to believe Nicholas’s story.
