No actor plays the role of victim as well as Mr. Jervis. By taking offense at the slightest rebuke and by seeing conspiracies behind every shadow, Max Jervis has built an empire of listeners and sponsors with his bottomless sense of victimization. Max rages and cries with anyone who hears his voice, and he creates monsters out of the airwaves to grip the passion of any listening market. But Max Jervis learns too late that his words summon abomination. The scraping of claws arrives outside his door following a caller's curse, and Max Jervis must face the creature his words shape.
