Dr. Alex Marsh (John Agar) is secretly conducting experiments with nerve gas, hoping to create a weapon for the government. He creates a dangerous compound that theoretically will only paralyze, and then leave the subjects in an extended hypnotic state. But a laboratory accident causes his body to absorb a deadly, gaseous version of the chemical, leaving him with an instantly lethal touch that causes human flesh to mummify into a blackened mass. His body quickly assumes the bloated, mummy appearance of his victims, and in his physical pain and mental fear & paranoia, he becomes a fugitive in the streets of Los Angeles leaving victims in his wake.

Joe Besser appears as a gas station attendant who has a deadly encounter with Dr. Marsh.

The young boy who encounters Marsh is a pre-MUNSTERS Butch Patrick.

The Stooges trail him, but before finding him they accidentally let a lion loose on the train. The boys finally catch up to Slipp, and the chase is on.
