"Ben Rutherford, a young college student, inherits a small antique machine known as "La Vaudou Vaudou Mort" from his late father's estate. He shows the mysterious machine off to a group of his close friends who are suitably impressed, but he returns to his dorm room one day to find that the machine has gone missing! He suspects that one of his friends has stolen it, but who? The next day his estranged older brother Marcus, a forensic photographer, turns up with some terrible news - Ben's best friend, Ryan, has been gruesomely killed, ripped apart from the inside by some unexplainable force…

Professor Banyon, Ben's archaeology teacher, informs him that La Vaudou Mort was built in the 1800's by a man known only as "Rubinstein", a brilliant but disturbed engineer who was a devout follower of the occult. He reveals that the machine was created as a tool for revenge, supposedly harnessing the supernatural powers of voodoo.
