Bram Stoker stamps his masterful influence on this grisly horror of sinister proportions. When Adam Salton moves to his uncle’s estate in England he finds himself embroiled in a terrifying mystery. In a fight to stay alive, Adam must seek out help to discover the horrifying truth. Children are being attacked, animals are being killed, and when a man is murdered, could the same person be responsible for all? And just what dangerous effects will Edgar Caswell’s obsessive dabbling in mesmerism have? Meanwhile the white worm lurks beneath the surface, casting its murky shadow, seeking out its next victim.
