Synopsis
In 16th Century France, a sculptor's apprentice steals one of seven gargoyles made for a Duke, who puts sculptor Rondelaire to death for the theft. The sculptor's blood falls upon the stone image, and weirdly, the idol combines with the life of thief Chavet and it terrorizes the local village townspeople. Every year at the same time, the beast returns only to be chased away by the populace. Years pass and the town has suffered immeasureably, and The Heap must help the people of that town fend off this beast when it returns to exact revenge.
