Synopsis for "Voodoo Island"

A pair of grave robbers find that they have gotten more than they bargain for when they happen to be trying to loot the very grave yard that the Zombie happens to be staying. The zombie then attacks them before they can defile any other graves. Killing one of the robbers, the Zombie sends the other would-be grave robber fleeing. The Zombie then has a flash of memory about his life before becoming a zombie, and has a brief flash that Voodoo was the cause of his current state, and rationalizes that it would be voodoo that could free him. Breaking loose of the cemetary gates, the Zombie wanders into New Orleans where Mardi Gras is well underway. As the grave robber reports his failure to his employer he is shot in cold blood and his body is ordered to be dumped in a river.

Meanwhile, the Zombie has wandered to a boat headed for Haiti and secrest himself into the cargo hold, completely unaware that his own daughter is boarding the same ship in search for clues behind her fathers disappearance, believing that Voodoo had some central part in her fathers disappearance. Arriving in Port-Au Prince, Haiti, Donna Garth departs the ship to meet up with her fathers friend Anton Cartier, she misses the Zombie disembarking from the ship, sending everyone witness to it's arrival to flee in horror.

Meeting with Cartier, Donna is unaware that she is being watched by a man in the employ of a Professor Rickard, this man named Hackman believes that she would be perfect for his bosses experiments. Returning to Rickard's lab, he arrives just in time to see Rickard test his latest batch of serium on a local woman, turning her into a giant spider-creature, however the serum proves unstable and the horror quickly dies. While back at the home of Anton Cartier, Donna gives him a photograph of an amulette of Damballa, knowing it had something to do with her fathers disapperance. Cartier tells her he will study it and get back to her. After she leaves, he admits to his servant that he knew what the amulet was the whole time and wanted to spare her the horror of knowing that her father could possibly be a zombie. Going outside, Cartier is confronted by the Zombie who struggles to introduce itself as Simon Garth, verifying to Cartier's horror, that Garth is indeed a zombie.

Synopsis for "Night of the Spider!"

Continued from page 1..... Anton Cartier, agreeing to free Simon Garth from the Voodoo curse he is trapped in, takes Garth to a cave where he tells the tormented man to stay while he tries to find a way to free him. Meanwhile, Hackman breaks into the places where Donna Garth is staying and kidnaps her for his master Professor Rickard's experiments. There she is injected with his serum, changing her into a giant spider creature.

Instead of expiring like his previous attempts, this creature attacks and kills both Hackman and Professor Rickard and then goes out seeking fresh victims. It's presence is felt by the Zombie who goes out and is attacked by the creature. The two fight, however the Zombie is able to over power it and beat it into submission. With the creature knocked out, the Zombie loses the urge to fight and returns to his cave. Donna then suddenly reverts back to her human form with only a vague memory of what hapepned. Rushing back to Anton's home, she tells him of the dream she had and is glad the "nightmare" is over, completely unaware that she had faced her father in battle.
