It's Charles Dexter Ward converted to a gothic period piece -- Ward (Price) is now a grown man with a wife understandably worried about the change in his manner and behaviour since they moved into the haunted castle he inherited. Meanwhile the villagers, half-mutated and suspicious of outsiders anyway, really don't like that a descendant of Joseph Curwen has moved back in and looks just like his infamous ancestor.

Also, the castle caretaker (Lon Chaney Jr., in greenish makeup that no one in the movie ever remarks upon) is really an old colleague of Curwen's, there to help make sure the wizard takes possession of Ward.
