English-spoken slasher, inspired by the biblical brothers Cain and Abel. In a mansion, the attractive Elias is making love to a woman of easy virtue. He often takes prostitutes home and they will never see the light of day again. Romero, Elias' deformed brother, lives in the basement of the house and, with Elias' knowledge, butchers them to release them from their sins. But their pact is jeopardised when the beautiful Eve arrives.
