"This film features five stories of supernatural terror from four directors. A group of strangers are inexplicable gathered in an isolated country estate. Dreams and nightmares dominate the conversation, and each guest shares a frightening event from his or her past. Two of the stories stand out: a mirror with a horrifying story that shows you a different room when you look into it and a ventriloquist who goes mad when his dummy appears to come to life"--Container.
