The film was released for both Spanish and English speaking audiences. After the tragic death of his girlfriend by local gangsters, artist Jasper (Mark Frost) is strongly considering his own suicide when he is suddenly paid a visit my a mysterious dark stranger who goes only by the name of M (Andrew Divoff). Soon revealed to be Mephistopheles, he has come to offer Jasper a deal: join his Satanic clan known as The Hand and receive a chance at the vengeance he so craves against those who killed the woman he loved. After accepting M's offer, Jasper is introduced to other members of the cult, including Claire (Monica Van Campen) and Dr. Yanamoto (Junix Inocian). Together, The Hand finds and ritually sacrifice the gang members in a massive bloodbath which ignites a blood thirst in Jasper not yet sated. Despite the caution of M, Jasper gets carried away and finds himself arrested. Police detective Margolies (Jeffrey Combs) and psychiatrist Jade de Camp (Isabel Brook) set to find answers from Jasper and also try to uncover the reasons behind his increasingly erratic and murderous behavior. A change is coming over Jasper; he is becoming something inhuman, a demonic beast with the powers of Hell behind him. Displeased with Jasper's lack of restraint and with the knowledge that he and Claire have begun an affair, M sets out to kill Jasper before he becomes a force to be reckoned with. After all, he has plans of his own: to release the lizard-like Homunculus, opening the Gates of Hell and releasing its unrelenting power on Earth to bring about the apocalypse.
