They'll protect him, they say, if he will consent to marry their younger sister, Lucy, who is waiting for him just beyond that locked door

How can he refuse?

But the atmosphere of the house begins to unnerve him

The ladies seem insane

Or is it he who is going crazy?

Is there a Lucy?

Who or what is she?

The minister arrives to perform the ceremony

The tension mounts

Then, finally, the door is opened, and the murderer has to make a difficult choice
