After the death of his wife, Dr. Orlof (John M. Thomas) attempts to grow himself a new lover (Kayden Rose) in the womb of his deceased beloved. Midway through the process, however, he is confronted by a mob of morally outraged villagers, who along with their leader (Martin Plouffe) brutally attack and murder the doctor. Satisfied with their efforts, the mob leaves without realizing that while they may have been successful in dispatching the good doctor, they failed to kill his experiment and as such, will learn the hard way that Hell hath no fury as a lover scorned!
