Here's your coffee

Thank you, Barbara

We're fine. Don't worry...


Who's that?


What's up?

A man escaped

A man escaped?

Yes. From Death Row

Hans Bergen

The Woodside Strangler

The sadistic Killer

Four murders in six months


Will be hung at dawn

Might be the police

Go and see


Hans Bergen

Who is it?


He's unconscious

From Death Row. As good as dead


Barbara, bring him in

Now's your chance


Which will help us determine

their effects...

in the treatment

of neurovascular diseases

Tomorrow, Dr Moroni will address you

But that's all from me

I hope you found it of interest

Thank you for your time



We're already late

Your attention, please

An addition to the program

Our friend Professor Zimmer

would like to say a few words

Gentlemen... I thank you

It was not easy for me

to get here today

As you know, I've been working

on problems of the nervous system

...for more than 30 years

Some of you may consider him

a charlatan

But all of you have heard of

Dr Orloff

According to him...

there are certain precise areas

of the brain and the spinal column

That inspire us to act

either for good or evil

His research convinced him

that good and bad

were merely a matter of physiology

That morality was located

entirely in our motor centers

Now I have gone even beyond that

With the help of my daughter, Irma

I have managed to define precisely

the physical centers...

of both good and evil

To control them is now easy

I have perfected a Z-ray capable of

eliminating or stimulating these centers

And I have proof of my theories

You've experimented on humans?

No, Dr Kallman. No

Only on animals

How exactly?

Did you perhaps find

some killer sheep, maybe?

Dr Moroni, this is no joke

I calmed a wild hyena and now

she eats out of my hand

I reversed the process

and she became enraged

She tried to attack herself

What do you want from us?

Permission to experiment on humans

What! Are you mad?

You Nazi bastard!

Let me speak!

By my method all the killers,

the psychotics, the sadistic maniacs

can be turned into normal people


Maybe even lead useful lives

Professor, have you no shame?

But what harm would it do

if I used a criminal

from death row?

It's you who's the criminal

I think our feeling is

you should leave at once

We formally forbid

the continuance of this work

No, Vicas! No!


Irma... promise you'll carry on


Yes. I promise


Hello, Philippe

Just like the old days, huh?

Thanks for all your help

Why not go home?

I can't right now

The house will seem so empty

The way they treated your father

was terrible

- I thought...

- Thank you

But it's over now

Come on. Let's go

I couldn't do anything

I'm just a junior doctor.

They don't listen to me

But I hate fools

like Vicas, Moroni, Kallman

I'll never forget

Ladies - and above all gentlemen...

We present for your pleasure

The strange and mysterious

Miss Death!

Want to go?

I'll take you



Going to Hartog?

Yes. Just you?


I was expecting your boyfriend

to appear

No. I always travel alone

It's dangerous

But not with you

Come far?

From Rotterdam

My name's Juliann van Drokken

I love travelling

I have to hitch.

I don't have the money for a train

But there's always some sucker...

- Oh! I'm sorry

- Don't be

Don't your parents worry?

They're both dead

Killed in the war. I was two

I live alone

But I do all right

I make money somehow

Model... hostess... secretary
