When the ominous paintings of an obsessed artist begin to manifest themselves in the physical realm, the increasing realism of the bizarre manifestations find the artist and his girlfriend transported to a terrifying South American castle in the screen and directorial debut of popular illustrator Matt Busch. Lately, Matt Busch (Busch) has been feeling unfulfilled in his career as a high-profile illustrator. After stumbling across a mysterious photograph of a castle in a nearby graveyard, Matt begins obsessively painting a vivid portrait of the unidentified castle while making sinister sketches of the frightful inhabitants he imagines lurk within the gothic walls. As Matt's sketches grow increasingly more lifelike, his girlfriend Sarah simultaneously begins coming into contact with a series of increasingly malevolent apparitions. As the drawings become more frenzied and the encounters grow increasingly disturbing, Matt and Sarah are mysteriously transported to the terrifying castle and forced to do battle with the artist's most menacing inner demons.
