In 1936 anthropologist Tom Harrison, poet and journalist Charles Madge and documentary filmmaker Humphrey Jennings set up the Mass Observation Project. The idea was simple: ordinary people would record, in diary form, the events of their everyday lives. An estimated one million pages eventually found their way to the archive - and it soon became clear this was more than anyone could digest. Today, the diaries are stored at the University of Sussex, where, remarkably, most remain unread.

When Payne Gunnison inherits his great-aunt's house, he discovers that the entire structure has been wired for video and sound - both to record and to play - and that "The Greer" (as the locals called the elderly recluse) had accumulated a superb library of tapes and DVDs - including some filled with scenes of extreme sex and violence. Payne quickly befriends his next-door neighbor and tenant, Nick, who becomes concerned when his new buddy becomes obsessed with the video technology. Something strange inhabits this old house - something bizarre and totally evil.
