Claimed opens with the recovery of a mysterious artifact, a strange box
bearing an undecipherable inscription, from an uncharted island
following an undersea volcanic explosion that nearly dooms the ship that
discovers it. Brought back to civilization, the box is purchased by a
crotchety old millionaire who quickly comes to regret it. Horrible
apparitions of the sea appear at night and frightening dreams plague the
old man, his niece and the young doctor who's serving him. While the
doctor does what he can to learn of the box's origin and the meaning of
the strange writing, the nonstop macabre visions, and occasional deaths,
that have appeared in the box's wake eventually lead to the abduction
of the old man and his niece by persons unknown. In pursuit of his
employer across the high seas, the doctor learns of the box's evil
origins from the mad sailor who originally found it.
