After one schoolgirl is raped while taking a short cut through the local woods, and another is murdered in the same woods a few days later, the local police are baffled. With the help of a reporter from one of the local papers, and against the wishes of a psychologist at the local hospital, a young teacher at the school the girls attended uses herself as bait to lure the perpetrator out. Could it be the creepy husband of the head mistress at the school, the psychologist who seems to be taking an unusual interest in the case, or something altogether more sinister? Written by

Did You Know?
The film's original title was changed for U.S. release to In the Devil's Garden due to the main character saying that the killer in the film looked like the Devil, and also because the Devil was again becoming a popular subject matter in films after the success of The Exorcist
(1973). The film, under the "Devil's Garden" title, is best known for being released along with La plus longue nuit du diable
(1971) under the title "The Devil's Nightmare" as a "Devil Double Feature".
The T.V. syndicated title, Tower of Terror, refers to an electrical tower under which the rapes and murders of some of the schoolgirls take place, and was also the setting where the climax of the film takes place. See more

The girl that was being killed in that scene was a dark haired girl, making it clear that the same scene was used when Susan was killed and Tessa was raped. See more
