Fred and Molly Bancroft, a pair of penniless newlyweds, are so desperate that they visit Fred's mysterious uncle Konrad Markesan, whom he hasn't seen in over twenty years. They are hoping to live in with him rent free until they can find jobs and be self-sufficient. The once-beautiful mansion is in a decrepitly musty state, filled with dust, cobwebs, and rats while Fred's once-kindly uncle is now a disheveled, cadaver-like figure who offers them shelter on condition that they never leave their room after dark, a condition that Markesan insures by locking them in at night.
