In 'Crevices', a man investigates the disappearance of his best friend, and finds his apartment completely sealed with masking tape. In 'The Sacrifice', a young woman returns home to find her ill mother chanting religious sutras in a room where she saw a ghost when she was a child, and then days later a strange mark appears on her arm. In 'Blonde Kwaidan', a Japanese businessman wakes up in his Los Angeles hotel room and feels the presence of a mysterious woman watching him. Finally, in 'Presentiment', a computer hacker becomes trapped in an elevator with a sinister elderly couple.
