In the 15th Century, a woman is accused of witchcraft by a cruel lord and sentenced to her death. The woman’s daughter (Barbara Steele) discovers that the lord’s motives for killing her mother has more to do with his own desires than with witchery, and for this she, too, is killed. A second daughter is spared.
One dark and stormy night the two daughters – one mysteriously appearing in ghost-form – join forces to take their delicious revenge over the hypocrite lord. He is encased and gagged inside a grotesque “wicker man” and can only stare with panicking eyes at his beautiful but merciless executioner (Halina Zalewsky).
