Dean Corso (Johnny Depp), a somewhat sleazy rare book dealer, is hired by a mysterious patron who has just come into possession of one of the only three copies of The Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows, a 17th Century occult text said to give its owner unimaginable power. The man hires Corso to track down the other two copies and compare them to his, but complications - both natural and supernatural - arise at every turn.
