But even after these frightening stories are told, one final nightmare awaits them all.

Queen of Spades: A gambling craze is sweeping 19th century St. Petersburg, yet a dashing Russian army captain is too impoverished to participate. But when he learns of a key to gaming riches, he will stop at nothing to steal it the sinister secret for himself.
