An old witch is burned at the stake. Before death, she curses a small Scottish village by condemning innocent young women to hang themselves from the charred branches of an old tree. A century later, her great granddaughter returns to the village to spendher honeymoon in the Witch's long abandoned castle. The townspeople, fearing the young girl is also a witch, condemn her to death by burning. Maciste (Kirk Morris) arrives to prove the young girl's innocence, but must first break the witch's curse by confronting her in the very depths of Hell.
