Young Janet Lee is trying to prove that giant bats are driving the terrified villagers of Fearton from their homes. It’s Janet’s belief that the bats are controlled by a sinister Miss Brendon, the owner of Dark’s Folly. With newspaper reporter Tom Brookes, Janet keeps watch on the castle. Suddenly the giant bats appear and the pair are spotted.
