Castle of Dr. Fumanchu

    Also known as Sax Rohmer's The Castle of Fu Manchu.

    The wicked Fu Manchu masterminds his newest scheme, which is to use mystical crystals to freeze the earth's oceans, turning them into virtual massive ice cubes. His evil daughter Lin Tang helps her father. Opposing him is his foremost adversary, Interpol's Dr. Nayland Smith from Britain.

    In Istanbul, Fu Manchu wants to take over the governor's mansion, which has an enormous stash of opium. He joins forces with hookah-smoking drug kingpin Omar Pashu, and enlists his evil daughter Lin to try to arrange the deal. If he can get the massive stash of opium in Istanbul, he would have the power to control the port in Anatolia.

    In order to complete his evil wish to freeze the oceans, Dr. Fu Manchu needs aid from a brilliant scientist, Professor Heracles, who has a heart ailment. Fu Manchu then kidnaps a doctor and his wife, in an effort to force them to give the unfortunate scientist a heart transplant. British spies must stop this insanity, or the planet will be destroyed.
