The story, which borrows quite heavily from ''Film/TheShining'' as well as the works of Creator/EdgarAllanPoe, is as follows: Famous writer Adrienne Delaney and her photographer husband Don Gordon move into a large, fancy mansion, built and previously owned by an eccentric magician by the name of Zoltan "Carno" Carnovasch. While snooping around her new home, Adrienne discovers a mysterious box in a sealed-off chamber in Carno's study and, to make a short story even shorter, [[CuriosityIsACrapshoot unwittingly unleashes]] [[SealedEvilInACan something mysterious and ominous]] that later [[DemonicPossession turns out to be a demon.]]
