"Comme chaque année, le docteur Robert Graves organise un tournoi de cricket entre les membres de son asile psychiatrique et les habitants du petit village qui l'héberge. Afin d'arbitrer la partie, il s'associe à un mystérieux patient, Crossley, persuadé d'avoir le pouvoir surnaturel de tuer grâce à son cri. Plus intéressé par la discussion que par le fait de compter les points, le malade se lance dans le récit de sa vie, marqué par l'apprentissage de la magie avec une tribu aborigène d'Australie, au cours duquel il a tué ses deux enfants. Mais ce n'est que le début d'un parcours terrifiant, qui va le mener chez les Filding, un couple anglais tout ce qu'il y a de plus normal, sur lequel il va exercer son emprise maléfique."
