In the aftermath of World War II, Father Lancaster Merrin
finds himself in the remote Turkana region of Kenya. Haunted
by memories of the war, he has taken a sabbatical from the
priesthood. He has come to lead the archaeological excavation
of a mysterious Bzyantine church. Directly beneath the church
Merrin finds a much more ancient crypt - and finds himself
face-to-face with unspeakable Evil. Madness descends on the
nearby villagers and on the British soldiers sent to guard
the site. Merrin watches helplessly as the atrocities of war
are re-enacted against the innocent villagers - atrocities
he had hoped he would never witness again. But the horror
has only just begun...
