Beneath a volcano, scientists discover a living rock. They take it back to their laboratory and link it to the computers, where it communicates with them, promising secrets to life and the universe itself in exchange for one thing: frequently, it needs to be fed on the fear of young women, so the scientists construct a fear chamber of horrors and subject young women to it in order to obtain the fluid.
