Robert Walton, an aspiring investigative journalist, sits across from the one man he never wanted to meet. Jacob Clauson is not only a long term resident at the Reinhold Asylum for the Criminally Insane, he is the monster responsible for the murder of Robert's parents as well. When Jacob starts to tell his story, Robert soon discovers that there are far greater things to fear than the man sitting before him. The power is out, the doorknob to the room spins in his grip and now there are screams outside the door. All the doors are open now and the real monsters are on the loose. Robert doesn’t believe in real monsters but he will soon enough. Robert’s reality becomes a spellbound nightmare. His only salvation is to trust an ancient storytelling madman and to somehow escape from the puzzle factory.
