Jack (Beerbohm Tree) is a wealthy society man with a perverse secret: in the basement of his stately London home, he has constructed an elaborate series of contraptions which he uses to bind and have his way with unsuspecting young women. However, his first conquest, Alice, discovers that she enjoys her ‘torments’ and soon becomes Jack's willing accomplice in luring other ladies into his house of forbidden pleasures...
