Lynn Claymore (Francis X. Bushman, Jr.) has inherited a large gothic estate, surrounded by thick swampland that can only be reached by boat. Claymore arrives at the house with his assistant, Trohelius Snapp, and the executor to the estate, attorney Richard Mason. Claymore notices a strange figure crawling into a window, but Mason assures him that the property is unoccupied. As they tour the home, however, a bizarre and supernatural presence begins to haunt them. The three men are relieved when the house servants arrive, hoping they may shed some light on the mystery. When a terrified woman (Kathryn McGuire), comes into the house, running from a knife-wielding madman, the group prays to escape with their lives.
