Bride of the Monster
Dr. Eric Vornoff (Bela Lugosi) is a scientist trying to use nuclear energy to transform people into superhuman beings. Despite his efforts, the abducted subjects he uses die during the experiment -- with the exception of his assistant, Lobo (Tor Johnson), who gains monstrous powers. Vornoff's mansion is protected by a murderous octopus, but somehow, reporter Janet Lawton (Loretta King) makes her way inside and discovers the truth. She's taken prisoner, but the police are close behind.
