An innocent young woman is made the subject of a horrific experiment, resulting in a trail of sex and bloodletting spanning generations and crossing many countries. Considered one of the Victorian era’s most controversial tales, Arthur Machen’s decadent mixture of dark sensuality and horror provoked controversy and outrage when it was first published. The story has been credited with inspiring horror writers such as H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King and Peter Straub.
