The Inside Story, which took seven years of planning and production, stars Dean Olsen as an astrophysics student who decides to move in with his Uncle Edward (Charles Tingwell). There is something creepy about the house, though, and Dean's Uncle eventually reveals that his great-grandfather mysteriously vanished from the study the night Uncle Edward's father was born. The neighboring house, meanwhile, is home to a wannabe novelist named Liz Davies (Kate Oliver). As Liz becomes increasingly dejected over her unpublished status, Dean falls further into the mysteries of the old house, and finds an ancient book in the cellar. Believing it to have negative magical properties, Edward warns Dean that the book will bring harm to anyone who attempts to unlock its secrets. Dean, however, doesn't heed the warning. Before he knows it, no one recognizes him--to his horror, he has become a fictional character in Liz's work-in-progress.
