Plot Summary: A man's obsession with pleasures of the flesh leads him to a mysterious puzzlebox, which opens a doorway to hell and ultimately consumes him. He escapes his eternal damnation and demands his former lover (also his brother's wife) to kill for him, so that he can gradually return to human form and evade his captors, a group of sadomasichistic demons known as the Cenobites.
