Jean Berlot is a neurotic young man traveling through the French countrieside to the insane asylum in which his mother recently died. Himself frequently plagued by nightmares of institutional incarceration, Jean is dreading this visit with every atom of his being. During his journey, his path crosses with that of the Marquis, a bizarre aristocrat who shows an odd fascination with Jean, offering him both a ride and a place to sleep. Jean accepts, and before long, he witnesses the Marquis participating in several practices that could best be described, at least by some, as unsavory. Without giving away too much, the Marquis confides that he cured his intense fear of premature burial by agreeing to have himself buried alive. By this logic, he encourages Jean to confront his fears of madness by undergoing "preventative therapy." Under the Marquis' guidance, Jean voluntarily checks himself into an insane asylum where the patients rampage freely, and where the staff have been tarred, feathered and locked in the dungeon...
