Dr. Von Metsker is a scientist who is extremely interested in the process of reanimation. However, he is only able to reanimate the severed body parts of animals. Metsker soon decides to experiment by attempting to reanimate the entire body of a dead animal. He experiments on the body of a dead rattlesnake and successfully manages to revive it. However, the electricity triggered a muscle spasm, causing the rattlesnake to bite Metsker in the neck while he is holding its' head. Metsker dies from a leathal dose of venom in his bloodstream.

"Von Metsker was a questionable quack, looking for morality. Instead, all he found...was a new way to die."
