Peter MacNicol stars in this fairy tale as Martin, a boy who has never been afraid. Determined to test his record of fearlessness, he sets off on a journey on which he meets a mysterious king (Christopher Lee) who has a haunted castle for rent. He makes a deal with Martin that if he can survive three nights in the castle, he will be given all the land he could possibly want, and a princess as his bride. Will Martin come out as the winner, or will he finally know all too well what fear is like?
