In Honor of this achievement our project student group have got to make replicas of the rockets whilst at that location. A trio of this select members wind up stumbling across a pair of demented brothers, one, Mabuser is an unlicensed doctor, who's become mentally unhinged due to being convince destructive parasites have infested his brain, while his stuttering teenage brother Gary, is a shy and lonely psychopath with a thing for Tarot cards and concealed necrophiliac tendencies.

- What's this card?

- [Gary] "La Justice".

"La Justice".

- Tough one, huh?

- Ah, yeah.

"La Jus"

- [Marbuse] Justice. Justice!

- Oh, justice, yeah.

It was right on the

tip of my tongue.

- Next card.

- Oh, I know this one.

"La Morte", and it means death.

- "La Mort". Love.

- Love?

No, no, it's not lo --

It's a skeleton!

- Look, he's smiling.

(heavy breathing)

(hinges squeaking)

- I'm not a crook!


- Oh, it's you!

- Did you know it was me?

- No, I thought it

was Billy Carter.

- Come on, admit I had you

going for a second, there?

- I'll say, especially that

hiding in the bushes routine.

- Bushes?

- Yeah.

Hey, see that

suitcase over there?

I want you take

it out to the car.

Then I need you to go to

store and pick up some stuff.

I'm not ready to go yet, I

still need to take a shower.

- And the final

group will consist of

Louise Kingsley,

Mike Simpson

and Sally Smith.

Where is Sally?

- Probably late, as usual.

- Well, your project

will be the development

of the German V2 rocket

during World War ll,

and the influence of

the German scientist

Frederick Bartholomew.

As you know, Bartholomew

came to the United States

from Germany after the war,

and spent the remainder

of his life here

under somewhat

mysterious circumstances.

Louise, I think I know

of a secluded place

where you can

complete your project.

Right here, off old Highway 5

is the community Little Town,

which strangely was the

place where Bartholomew

completed his post-World

War ll experiments.

There's a small field right here

which would be the

perfect place for you

to complete your research.

- I'm sorry I'm late.

- [Leonard] Please

be on time, Sally.

- I Will.

Oh, excuse me, excuse me.

- I've discussed

your term project.

While Louise tries to

assemble the model rocket

I'd like you to interview

some of Professor

Bartholomew's former associates

- Oh, okay, I will.

- And, Mike, I know

you've been bu --


I know you've been busy

but perhaps you could also

go outwith Louise

and give her some help

when she goes to Little Town.

- Ah

I was supposed to practice.

- Mike, if we complete

this project successfully

you don't have to

take the final exam.

- I guess I can go.

- Okay, Mike and Louise

will go to Little Town

to test the rocket,

while Sally remains here in

town to do her interviews.

(door knocking)

(door knocking)

- Hi.

- [Gary] Hi.

- Leonard sent me.

- [Gary] Leonard?

- [Sally] He said that

you knew something

about Frederick Bartholomew?

- Leonard?

- Come in, come in.

I am Dr. Marbuse, this

is my assistant Gary.

- Hi, I'm Sally Smith.

- Yes, come in.

- I understand that you

have some information

about Frederick Bartholomew.

- Frederick Bartholomew.

I knew Frederick

Bartholomew personally.

- Well, I'm looking for

some information about

the development

of the V2 rocket.

- The V2 rocket.

- [Sally] Yes.

- I have information

on the V2 rocket.

Please, sit down.

- Well, I can't stay long.

- This won't take long.

The things I know

about the V2 rocket

and Frederick Bartholomew,

nobody on this planet

knows what I know.

This is your lucky day.

(food frying)


Hey, Gary!

- [Gary] Yeah.

- You notice anything?

Smoke, the room is

filling with smoke!

- Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.

It must be steak is overdone!

- Maybe I better

come back later.

- Oh, look what happened.

It was on too high it burned!

- Get that thing out of here!

Please stay, the room

will be clear in a moment.

- Well, I gotta meet

some friends anyhow.

- The V2, Bartholomew.

I have all the information.


- [Marbuse] You'll come back.

- I will.

- Tonight, come back tonight,

I'll tell you everything.

- I will. Goodbye.

- [Marbuse] As soon as you can?

- Yes.


It was nice meeting

you, Gary. Goodbye.

- Oh, yeah, I --

Pleasure is all mine.

- Don't let her get away!

- Why? I though she

was coming right back.

- She might not,

or she might bring

someone with her.

- Oh, no!

- Go down to the alley

and bring her up the back steps.

Grab her!

- Alright.

Where's the sack?

Where's the chloroform?

Oh, here's the sack.

Where's the chloroform?

- Here, here, here.

Get going-

(rock and roll music)

Are you f***ing blind or what?

("From Here to Eternity"

by The Only Ones)

(playful active music)

(door knocking)

- [Sally] Hi.

- Miss Smith, so

glad you came back.

- Yeah.

- Please, make

yourself comfortable.

You look thirsty.

Why don't you let me make

one of my special beverages?

Be back in a moment.

(playful active music)


Don't screw up.

- How could I screw up?

- You could screw up.

You could drink it yourself.

Don't drink it,

just give it to her.

- Oh, I understand. I get it.

(playful active music)

Dr. Marbuse have prepared

this drink for you.

- You'll have to

excuse him, Miss Smith.

He's sort of an idiot.

- Why do you let him

treat you like that?

- What do you mean?

- I don't know,

he treats you like you're
