Description by OLDIES.com:
On a dark and stormy night in his reclusive mountain hideaway, Professor Farrington unveils the "VXO Accumulator," his newest and most important invention, to his wise confidant Judge Folger. The Accumulator has the power to produce unlimited energy by harnessing the power of the sun. Farrington believes his creation can end many of the world's ills. Just as Professor Farrington is planning to go public, he is kidnapped and the Judge is sadistically strangled.
Featuring elaborate electronic laboratory equipment designed by Kenneth Strickfaden for Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, Murder At Dawn chronicles a wild, spooky night where murder lurks in every shadow and the fate of mankind's future hangs in the balance.
Tucked away deep in the mountains in his secret laboratory, an eccentric scientist is hard at work on a new invention. Using the sun as a power source, Professor Farrington's "VXO Accumulator" promises to create infinite energy. But before the professor can unveil his scientific masterpiece to the world, he is abducted from his secret laboratory, and his colleague, Judge Folger, is strangled by a mysterious killer. Each room in Farrington's hideaway contains the ingredients necessary for a brew of science fiction fantasy and horror. Equipped with trap doors, special effects, and the same equipment designed by Kenneth Strickfaden for the films FRANKENSTEIN and BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, the spooky old hideout makes the perfect setting for this offbeat murder mystery.
