On the first night of shooting, the cameraman mysteriously takes ill and collapses...
Some days later, his replacement falls into a trance and never recovers...
Leading man Max Shreck (Willem Dafoe) is never introduced to the cast and crew and he is never seen out of character. Hapless actor Gustav (Eddie Izzard) thinks his sinister co-star is the ultimate method actor.
