After the country suffers from the Black Death, two church elders accuse a girl of being a witch responsible for the destruction.
They command two soldiers, a priest, a thief, a acolytes and a knight to transport the girl to a monastery so the monks can lift her curse from the land. Shortly after setting off, the group camp for the night. Anna becomes hysterical at the prospect of being left alone with Debelzeq. She attacks him and grabs his key to the cage, then escapes, fleeing toward a nearby village. The search for her leads the group to a mass grave, where Eckhart has visions of his dead daughter. Chasing the visions, he impales himself on Kay's sword and dies. Later Anna summons monstrous wolves, which chase the group and kill Hagamar. At the monastery, the men find that all the monks have been killed by the plague, but locate the Key of Solomon, an ancient book filled with holy rituals used to defeat evil.
The men confront Anna, and the priest begins to perform a ritual used on witches, but realizes that she is not a witch, and begins frantically performing an exorcism. However, the demon that is possessing Anna reveals himself and melts the metal of the cage. He fights off the knights effortlessly, but later flees inside the monastery. As the men search for the demon, they realize he is not trying to escape, but to destroy the book so that nothing can stop his powers.
They find a room where the monks were writing copies of the book, where the demon, revealing himself to be Baal, destroys the copies and possesses the dead monks' bodies to use as weapons. The three men fight the possessed monks while Debelzeq continues the exorcism ritual. During the fight, Baal/Anna breaks the priests neck, kills Felson and mortaly wounds Behmen. However, the acolyte is able to finish the ritual and Baal is expelled from Anna's body, freeing her.
