SummaryDead of night: A group of strangers is mysteriously gathered at a country estate where each reveals a chilling tale of the supernatural. These include premonitions from beyond the grave, an antique mirror, a supernatural game of golf, and a ventriloquist's dummy. But even after these frightening stories are told, one final nightmare awaits them all.
Queen of Spades: A gambling craze is sweeping 19th century St. Petersburg, yet a dashing Russian army captain is too impoverished to participate. But when he learns of a key to gaming riches, he will stop at nothing to steal it the sinister secret for himself.
