Failed actor Dave Adams unexpectedly gets the opportunity to rebuild his bank balance when a distraught young caller misdials and mistakes him for a psychiatrist. Bluffing it out, Adams arrives at the house to find that the girl Helen is wealthier than he could have imagined. Suggesting that he treat her privately in her home, "Doctor" Adams attends his new patient daily and learns of the recurring nightmare where Helen finds herself steeped in blood after having murdered a man. Despite the disgust shown by his flatmate Tim, Dave insists that there is nothing wrong with the girl and that he is doing no harm, and even becomes involved with Helen's attractive sister Ann. The situation seems perfect, but when several people go missing after having visited the house, Adams begins to wonder if Helen might actually be dangerous. Resolving to drop the facade, he is unable to resist the temptation to play his hand one last time, with devastating consequences.
