Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Several accidents are occurring at a lumber camp. The workers believe it is a backwoods creature named "The Creeper" who's responsible. Vacationing the area, Lamont and Margot stumble on to one of the accident scenes where a tree has fallen on a lumberman. The two hear about the local superstition which are frightening the men. However, The Shadow knows better and investigates.
