America in the year 1807. The once stinking rich Elliott family lives on a plantation that, just like the family itself, is slowly in decline. The head of the family, grandmother, suffers from senile dementia, as a result of which the everyday running of the plantation is in the hands of her children, grandchildren and partners, who are primarily interested in alcohol abuse and sexual excesses. The only two with any sense of responsibility are the attractive butler and the youngest member of the family, the teenage Sara. Together, they have to do battle with the evil that engulfs the house while the mountain of corpses seems to get higher and higher.
