A temperamental horror film actor (Jon Pertwee) moves into the house while starring in a vampire film being shot nearby. He buys a black cloak from a peculiar shopkeeper to use for his film character's costume. The cloak seems to instill in its wearer strange powers, something his co-star (Ingrid Pitt) quickly discovers.
