blinded by fear?

No, you won't run away.

All those who accepted my wager

died in the castle.

I'm sorry, but I can't

accept your wager.

You're right, my young friend.

I heard of this castle

located on Providence hill,

when I arrived in London.

The last ones to enter it were

a young couple on their honeymoon.

The husband was a cousin of my wife.

Lord Thomas will correct me if I'm wrong,

but it's my understanding

that they never left it again.

- They stayed there because they liked it.

I doubt they vanished into thin air.

Dead or alive,

they left the castle.

Forgive me for contradicting you,

but Mr. Poe is right.

They never left the castle.

They are resting there,

in the family cemetery.

Every year, I search for a brave man

to take up my challenge,

in the hope of clearing up the mystery

of this terrifying legend.

You are very nice,

and I'm happy

that you have refused my wager.

It's not that I don't want to,

but I can't, my lord.

A 100,

that's too great a sum

for the pocket of an honest journalist.

- But 10...

- You'll accept for 10?

- Whenever you like.

- It must be tonight...

the night of the dead.

Today is the first of November.

From midnight to dawn,

the dead return to the castle

to relive the tragedies of their deaths.

Very well! Tonight,

my theory will be confirmed,

and I'll write a sensational article

about the castles of terror.

Think well, my young friend.

Everything's been thought of.

I'll finish the interview, and we'll go.

We must leave now.

The castle is far. It will take

at least two hours by coach.

Yes, but I have

to write my article.

If that's the only thing that keeps you,

we can talk on the way,

for I don't mind accompanying you.

It's a great honour, Mr. Poe.

In that case,

let's go. Would you mind if we stop
