Charles Dexter Ward arrives at a small village to visit the house he inherited from his ancestor who died there 100 years ago.
Loosely based on H.P. Lovecraft’s novel THE CASE OF CHARLES DEXTER WARD, this fright flick opens with a warlock placing a curse on a group of villagers about to burn him at the stake. Generations later, the warlock’s descendant returns to the village to pick up where his ancestor left off.
