Egyptologist Julian Fuchs gives his daughter Margaret a red ring for her birthday. Unknown to Margaret, the ring has been taken from the tomb of the Ancient Egyptian queen Tera who was executed for practicing black sorcery. Margaret and her boyfriend Tod Browning discover that Fuchs keeps Tera’s perfectly preserved body locked in the cellar. From her sarcophagus, Tera begins to exert influence over Margaret, who was born at exactly the same moment that Fuchs uncovered the tomb. Via her control of Margaret and by sending out her own severed hand, Tera begins to kill the members of Fuchs’s expedition in order to get back the artefacts she needs to complete her resurrection and then be able to possess Margaret’s body.
