During a bout of insomnia the artist Pickman discovers the diary of his eccentric great uncle. Discoveries within the diary lead Pickman on a maddening search for the embodiment of true horror. His obsession leads him to the lair of one who is willing to feed his dark desire... for a price. The Faustian conclusion brings the artist's work to darkness and the subject, at last, to horrible light.
