Synopsis for "The Skull of Silence!"Edit

Kull is warned not to open the doors to the castle, as doing so will unleash an ancient evil. Kull ignores the warnings, breaks the lock, and opens the door. He is almost overwhelmed by, and barely defeats, the mystic entity known as Silence. After trapping the entity back in the castle, and re-locking the doors, he declares that no one should ever open those doors.
