Vincent Price as Curtis Lark

Peter Cushing as John Cornelius The curiosity of the inhabitants of the remote Scottish island of Lewigh is aroused when two strangers arrive for the funeral of the local doctor. The two men are no strangers to each other, nor were they to the late Dr Hugh Dexter. One is Professor Curtis Lark - a flamboyant American explorer, scientist and Nobel Prize winner whose research has been in the field of telepathy and telekinesis; the other is John Cornelius - the eminent British brain surgeon. What starts as a brief visit by two colleagues to honour an old friend quickly develops into a series of bizarre and frightening events which uncover the presence of forces unknown bent on world domination. 1: Island Genesis

Vincent Price as Curtis Lark

Peter Cushing as John Cornelius On the Isle of Lewigh, Lark and Cornelius are certain that the death of Dr Hugh Dexter was no accident. From his research notes, they diagnose the ' island sickness ' as the early symptoms of a strange genetic mutation undergone by many of the inhabitants, turning them into zombies blindly obeying some unknown force. The key to the mystery seems to be an apparently simple-minded 18-year-old - Flora Keiry - who saves Lark and Cornelius from being burnt to death in the fire at Dexter's house, which, instead, claims as its only victim the housekeeper, Molly Kyle 2: Hurried Exodus
