Plot Summary

Despite his inability to speak or hear, Malcolm Shanks (Marcel Marceau) has a talent for puppetry, which earns him a job assisting scientist Walker (also Marceau), who, by connecting wires to corpses and manipulating them as a puppet master would, is investigating how to revive the dead. When Walker himself dies, Shanks successfully takes over the operation. He decides to use his godlike power to kill the many people who have wronged him, then bring them back to life as his servants.
