Beneath the Crypt lies ...
The Vault of Horror!
Welcome to Death's waiting room, a vault of impenetrable concrete in which five doomed strangers seek comfort in confession only to discover that even more chilling evils await them ... Meet Rogers, whose greed for an inheritance gives a bizarre new meaning to the term 'blood money' ... Maitland, who believes he can cheat death and his life insurance company too ... Sebastian, the magician who discovers the ultimate 'rope trick' ... Critchit, the fastidious husband who berates his wife's housekeeping skills one time too many and discovers just how meticulous she can be - about murder ... And Moore, the embittered artist who dabbles in voodoo and death ... They are all captives in the Vault of Horror!
