Eight strangers find themselves locked in an unfamiliar room, unwitting participants in the ritual called the “daemon-calling.” Legend says that whoever can survive the ritual will have the power to summon daemons and fulfill a wish. But something worse than the supernatural lurks in the shadows.
In ancient times, when indigenous people inhabited the island of Taiwan, human beings lived alongside both spirits and daemons. When modernity destroyed that world completely, the old daemons of Taiwan retreated into the dark corners, their memories still fresh and their eyes still sharp.
Eight total strangers find themselves together in a locked and unfamiliar room. They are required to participate in a ritual called “the daemon-calling,” in which a terrible price will buy the most steadfast member a chance to command a daemon and fulfill a wish.
Each of the eight participants carries their own ardent wish, along with a dark secret. As the ritual continues – the price growing ever steeper – they all discover that something even more sinister than the occult is hiding in the shadows.
