An elderly couple living in a remote village with their mischievous son, Herbert, are presented with a macabre souvenir from India: a withered monkey's paw. Upon receiving this strange gift, the couple are warned of its dangers - that though it has the power to grant wishes, it exacts a terrible price for them. Disbelieving such fanciful ideas, the old man makes a wish that brings the most terrible events imaginable into their lives.
Horror Classics presents two classic stories of the supernatural. "The Monkey's Paw" tells of an elderly couple who make a wish that they will eternally regret. "The Damned Thing" is the story of a coroner's inquest looking into the mysterious, savage death of Hugh Morgan. These chilling stories are sure to delight even the most discerning horror fan.
