In the 18th century Jonathan Green undertakes a scientific voyage from Europe to the east. Having passed through Transylvania he finds himself lost in a small village surrounded by impassable woods. The villagers have dug a moat to cut themselves off from the rest of the world in the belief it will protect them from evil spirits. What they don't realize is that the evil has made a home in their village and diabolical demons and creatures are biding their time until it is ready to unleash themselves upon the world.
