“After Ethan Barker’s wish for reciprocated love is granted in a deal with the Devil, his life unexpectedly descends into an inescapable Hell of its own. In ‘Mephisto’, we see the chillingly macabre meeting with the Devil in which Ethan’s attempt to void his soul-consuming contract is met with an unsettling conclusion”
