The Nazi doctor who has performed the surgery now bears a grudge against the Japanese, visits the fifth columnists, and, after turning them into zombies, sadistically murders them
  • The Corpse Vanishes: Dr. Lorenz, a mad scientist, wants to keep his elderly wife young. He does this by kidnapping yourng females and extracting fluid from them. He then injects this fluid into his wife
