The story of Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man follows the events of the previous Wolf Man movie, where Larry Talbot, played by Chaney, was bitten by a werewolf and now wants to end his cursed life. He travels to a cemetery in Vasaria, hoping to find the gypsy woman Maleva, who holds the key to his salvation.

He is led by Talbot to seek out Dr. Frankenstein's notes on how to destroy them both. Meanwhile, Mannering, played by Knowles, who is a scientist studying the brain, is summoned to Vasaria by Elsa, who is the granddaughter of Dr. Frankenstein.
