Synopsis:

An old antique dealer, Jesús Gris, finds a 450-year-old mechanical object. After winding the golden, scarab-shaped device, it suddenly unfurls spider-like legs that grip him tightly, and injects him with an unidentified solution. At first, Gris is amazed of rejuvanated the solution makes him feel. But this only the start of extraordinary macabre adventures...
