KIDNAPPED BRIDES Are The Victims Of His Terror! Prepare to shudder when you see the strange practices of this doctor who sacrificed beautiful women for the sake of a mad love!  (taglines)

Other[edit]

  • Dr. Lorenz: You see, our dreams, our minds play strange tricks on us sometimes!
  • Keenan: Aww, now wait a minute. Are you trying to tell me that this Professor Lorenz is a hypnotist as well as a horticulturist?

Dialogue[edit]

Patricia Hunter: Oh, professor, do you also make a habit of collecting coffins?
Dr. Lorenz: Why, yes, in a manner of speaking. I find a coffin much more comfortable than a bed.

Dr. Foster: These young girls, whether dead or alive, are being used by Lorenz in some manner as human guinea pigs to sustain his wife in a youthful state.
Keenan: Oh, that's preposterous.
Patricia Hunter: It's nothing of the kind. Scientists are finding out every day that glands and hormones have a lot to do with life and health.
Dr. Foster: The glands in our bodies help to determine the condition of our teeth, the texture of our hair.

Fagah: Why do you beat my son so hard?
Dr. Lorenz: Because he's at best an animal, and some day I shall have to destroy him.
Fagah: My poor son!... Why was he ever born?
