When author Iris Blum becomes bedridden, her estate manager, Mr. Waxcap, hires a live-in nurse, Lily. Lily comes to believe that Blum’s most popular horror novel may be based on a real-life murder committed at the house. The original owners disappeared immediately after they were married – even though it was said that the groom built the lavish house for the bride with his own two hands. Later we see a clip of Polly, the bride, being smashed on the head with a hammer in front of part of the wall that has been stripped of its boards. A man, presumably the groom, is next seen hammering those boards in place while covered in blood. Lily eventually sees Polly’s ghost and is so frightened she dies. Since Blum never receives visitors, and no longer has a nurse, she too dies. Some time later Mr. Waxcap finds the corpses and we see a new family move into the house who are seemingly unaware of all the ghosts they are “borrowing it from.”.
