“The mirror has been shattered. But what do the splinters reflect?”
Painter Johan and his wife Alma seek refuge on a remote island but they soon find their stay to be anything but relaxing. While exploring the island, Johan is constantly approached by local weirdos who he soon begins to believe are actually demons. Johan details these encounters and gives names to the horrors surrounding him such as The Lady With A Hat. Insomnia sets in and night after night Alma sits by Johan’s side and hears his confessions. He is a man tortured. He tells her of the “vargtimmen” – The Hour of the Wolf while she sits by his side, afraid to sleep. He laments his lost love – Veronica Volger. He tells her of drowning a child.
Not long after, the couple are invited to a party hosted by the local baron. Johan and Alma fight over the attendance of Johan’s aforementioned lover – Veronica Volger. Enraged, Johan shoots Alma and rushes to the soiree. Upon his arrival Johan is aghast to find the other guests are none other than the ghouls populating his waking nightmares…then things start to get much, much worse.
