Corso (Depp) is a rather dubious rare book finder, whose services are engaged by the owner of one of Europe's largest collection of demonic texts. The prize of his collection is a 16th century tome entitled The Nine Gates, a book containing nine etchings that supposedly hold the key to summoning Satan himself. Dean Corso (Johnny Depp) is highly skilled at his work, a position which requires dexterity, cultural expertise, nerves of steel...and few scruples. Known for locating rare books for wealthy collectors, Corso is hired by eminent book-lover and scholar of demonology, Boris Balkan (Frak Langella). Corso's mission: to find the last two volumes of the legendary manual of satanic invocation The Nine Gates of the Shadow Kingdom, compare them with Balkan's first volume, supposedly the only one of its kind, and ascertain the authenticity of the series.

Whether dealing with Jewish vampires or geriatric devil worshippers, or just plain neighbors from hell, Polanski has shown in the past how adept he is at mixing humor and horror - to the point that you can't distinguish whether you're horrified by the humor or amused by the horror. Witness Ruth Gordon smoothing her precious floorboard after Mia Farrow drops the knife in the climactic scene of ROSEMARY'S BABY. Amidst all the madness and mayhem life does go on, Polanski seems to be saying, down to its more mundane aspects: they might be monsters, but they still use toilet paper. And underneath the almost camp humor is the disturbing assumption that of course, all of this could be true.
