Description

Breaking news comes over the radio, announcing the escape of a mental patient, who is also mass murderer. Johnny Talbot, a young drifter, hears the news on the radio, as he’s smoking a joint, while driving a VW Beetle, towards Provincetown. Not paying full attention to the road, Johnny accidentally hits a hitchhiker, pulls over, and puts the victim in the trunk of the car. Johnny drives into a wooden area, and drops the body off on the side of the road. He is about to leave, when he sees three witches approaching the corpse body. The witches bring the zombie to life, and thus begins an introduction to a gallery of famous monster vignettes, which are all connected by Johnny Talbot, who is revealed to have psychological issues. The main nemesis of Johnny is Nosferatu, a centuries old vampire with supernatural powers. Nosferatu has a minion named Renfield, the aforementioned mass-murderer, who has been ordered to capture Johnny by his master. In the midst of dream and nightmare sequences, Johnny encounters a mummy, who has a vendetta against fashion and art collectors, Werewolves, Sea Creatures, Mad Doctors, and their failed laboratory experiments. The climax occurs during a storm on the Provincetown breakwater, between Johnny and Nosferatu.
