Shaken, Caleb arrives home only to find Sally in the arms of someone else, and both are scheming to get his money.....so Caleb returns to the antique shop and the owner makes a doll in the image of Sally for him. After paying for the doll and being told that whatever happens to the doll will happen to Sally, he takes the doll hom, where Sally sees it the next morning, really falling for it. But Caleb warns her it is delicate and not to touch it....ever, and he puts it up on a shelf. When Sally goes into another room, Caleb takes the doll and pokes it a few times with a pin....and he hears screams from the other room, so he knows what the shop keeper told him is true.

Then they spot the werewolf, which jumps at them....causing injury to all the men [but Bodzla] before it falls to its death.

Synopsis:
Abner was the local historian who knew everything there was to know about everyone else in town...dead or alive. One night he visited the graveyard to dig up a corpse for the jewels a woman had been buried in, and as he opened the coffin, and saw the jewels, he also saw a rat....an animal he detested more than any other. He re-inters the coffin after getting the jewels and scurries away to his house, where he discovers, with more research, that some Revolutionary War tunnels exist under the graveyard from a cellar. So he decides to use them to get to the coffins of certain people from under the ground, where he cannot be seen as easily. Unfortunately, as he makes his way along in those tunnels, hundreds of rats scurry about, and follow him to a grave where he finds the moneybelt of Marcus Lee. Coming back the next evening, he discoverss the belt gone.....and figures the rats must have carried it off. That's too much for Abner....he goes back home and builds a wire barrier to keep the rats away from the digging he is doing. And while digging one evening, the rats find a way to escape his wire trap and gnaw the timbers he has erected to keep the ceiling from collapsing. Suddenly, Abner finds that the tunnel is caving in on him.....and he has left his shovel behind.....and slowly he suffocates to death!
