Synopsis:
Two medical students need to procure a corpse in order to get an anatomy credit to graduate and pay an imbecile five bucks to dig and grave rob a newly dug grave. The target of their efforts is a man convinced by his 'friend' to take a drug that will emulate the death-like appearance in order to collect a forty thousand dollar insurance policy. The friend tells him that he will insist upon his being buried immediately and then dig him up later, but he intends to betray him and leave him in the coffin. When the medical students and their stooge finish unearthing the casket, the unfortunate man's air is nearly gone, and he sits bolt upright as soon the lid is lifted, nearly scaring the three of them to death. The students rush out of the cemetery in a panic just as the 'friend' is driving down the road. He swerves to avoid them and crashes the car, killing himself. Later, the students receive a visit from the imbecile who has brained the entombed man with a crowbar in order to collect the five bucks.
