Storyline

Med student Lewis Moffitt harbours a secret fear of the dark stemming from a traumatic childhood incident involving a corpse. Nonetheless, he pretends to be unaffected during the first autopsy witnessed by his class, and generally affects an attitude of fearlessness. This, however, inspires his would-be frat brothers to conceive a particularly morbid initiation ritual -- one which will, inevitably, go horribly awry.

I Feared Not

"A medical school student is pledging a fraternity but he harbors a dark secret from his past. A traumatic experience from his childhood comes back to haunt him, when his fraternity hazing brings back his memories. The simple fraternity prank ends up going horribly wrong for our pledge and his would-be fraternity brothers," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis.

Medical school student George Mather (as Lewis B. Moffitt)'s mission is to retrieve a gold ring from the finger of corpse "John Doe", who resides at a local mausoleum. You've got to wonder how "Mr. Doe" managed to keep his gold ring through an autopsy and burial. Probably, it wasn't real gold. Anyway, the film's flashback/framing indicates this all happened in 1955. Probably, "Ring of Terror" rested on the shelf for seven years; and was brought out of cold storage to frighten unsuspecting 1962 viewers.

Don't you be fooled.
