Il caso di Charles Dexter Ward

The Case of Charles Dexter Ward

Charles Dexter Ward, a diligent and solitary teenager,  finds out he has an ancestor who mysteriously vanished smacking of sorcery. When he discovers an old painting of his predecessor, revealing a face identical to his own, the young man is attracted  irresistibly into a whirl of inquiries increasingly mysterious and occult that will lead him, a decade later, to a forced admission to mental hospital. But the family doctor, Marinus Willett, would like to reconstruct the terrifying story of necromancy, possession, alchemy experiments, going back to the roots of madness  – after many inquiries that will be failing also his mind, the doctor will have to put an end to nameless horrors.
