When Eddie Bowen hooks up with the sexually aggressive Suze Phillips he thinks it's his lucky night. It's not. He's drugged and trapped within a specially-prepared room. So begins an ordeal that threatens to break not just his body but also his mind. The psychotic Suze uses Eddie's flesh and blood to carry out a ritual that changes the very room itself. The light is dying and the darkness is coming alive. There's something in the shadows, something that's coming for Eddie. Can he escape in time? Or will the darkness claim him..?
