Abstract:

Princess Asa Vajda, before being burned at the stake with her evil brother Javutich for being a witch, places an evil curse on her family. Centuries later, Dr. Kruvajan and his assistant Dr. Gorobec accidentally revive the bodies of Asa and Javutich. Asa vampirizes Kruvajan, allowing the cunning witch to begin her campaign to possess the body of her lookalike descendant Katia and kill the remaining Vajdas. Dr. Gorobec has fallen in love with Katia, but can his love alone save her?
