Synopsis

In order to gain the ability to perform black magic, Dr. Faust strikes a deal with the Devil's messenger, Mephistopheles, to sell his soul to the devil. With his newly acquired black magic, Faust commits murder and seduces the Dutchess of Parma, Der Herzog. But like any deal with the devil, Faust's deal turns sour. All the people Faust has hurt return to torment him until he dies and his soul is damned to Hell.
