Midnight. Late December, 1937. Reed, a disgraced archeologist and aesthete, is running for his life. Having stolen an ancient amulet from the fetid grave of a neglected Holland churchyard, he locks himself in the library of his London townhouse in order to evade the pursuit of some “malign being.” In shocking detail, he recounts a gruesome testimony of unnatural occurrences surrounding the totem’s theft… and the appalling consequences for all who come to possess it.
THE YELLOW WALLPAPER
New England, 1891. Jane, a sensitive and imaginative young woman, finds herself sequestered on a remote estate that her husband, a physician, has rented for the summer. She is forbidden to write, and must hide her journal entries as she recuperates from what he has diagnosed as a “temporary nervous depression” following the birth of their baby. Without anything or anyone to stimulate her, Jane becomes obsessed with the wallpaper in her bedroom as the effect of her domestic oppression and stifled creativity begins to take a toll on her sanity.
