There, he connives his pupil into assisting him in mapping the functions of the various parts of the human brain, using living subjects who are under a terrible animation-suspending drug called "black sleep". Subsequently, the student, along with the daughter of one of the subjects, discover that most of these subjects have survived but are being kept in a dungeon-like cellar, in various stages of physical and mental derangement...The Black Sleep featuring Basil Rathbone and Herbert Rudley is streaming on Epix, free on Tubi, and available for rent or purchase on Prime Video.
