Synopsis for "The Frankenstein Monster Meets Werewolf by Night!"

Frankenstein's Monster heads to Los Angeles, hearing about the Brotherhood of Baal's experiments in soul transference. He wants them to transfer his soul into a new human body, and they tell him that can be done once they perform a ritual sacrifice that just happens to involve Lissa Russell as the victim. Lissa's brother interrupts the ceremony as the Werewolf, leading the Monster to fight him, eventually knocking him out and letting the cultists take the Werewolf as a replacement sacrifice. Before they can deliver the killing stroke, however, the Monster catches on that the soul transfer was only meant to allow Satan to inhabit his body, so he turns on the Brotherhood together with the Werewolf.
