A man buys a painting at an auction which depicts damnable tortures and wonders why he bought it since it is so gruesome. His wife dislikes it so he puts it in the attic, but when he glances at the picture again, it appears as though one of the victims is outstretching her hand to him. When his hand brushes the canvas he finds himself pulled into the painting with the monsters and their victim. When his wife approaches the canvas with a knife, he reaches out to her and she finds herself pulled into the painting as he is released. Grateful to be out of the painting, he picks up the knife and destroys it, too late realizing that his wife was trapped inside.
