Legend has it that in the 19th century, sorcerer and former owner of Daemons’ Roost, Jacob Surtees would summon the powers of Hell to his home to terrorise and subjugate his victims.

A hundred and fifty years later, the house is occupied by Nathan Clore, a veteran horror film director with secrets of his own.

With his health failing, Clore summons his stepdaughter Alison to Daemons’ Roost to share with her the chilling truth of what happened to her family there.
