There are graves that should have never been opened... The narrator and his friend learn this only after they have robbed several graves and started an exhibition on the artifacts they have found.
Everything started when they were robbing a grave in an old Dutch cemetery. While they were digging, they heard a strange voice – as if a giant hound was howling somewhere near. They didn’t care and robbed the grave anyway. Soon terrible things started to happen – a friend of theirs got attacked by a large, strange animal.
