This slow-moving attempt at a horror film involves a curse placed on a sadistic slave owner and his descendants. Flashbacks reset time back to the mid 19th century to help explain the plot wherein a modern-day psychiatrist and his family move into the mansion unaware of the evil curse. The spirit of the dead slave slowly inhabits the body of the doomed doctor.
