Storyline

At a party, someone goes insane and murders three women. Falsely accused of the brutal killings, Jerry is on the run. More bizarre killings continue with alarming frequency all over town. Trying to clear his name, Jerry discovers the shocking truth...people are losing their hair and turning into violent psychopaths and the connection may be some LSD all the murderers took a decade before.

Trivia

Stephanie's two children in the film had to be dubbed by Lieberman's three year old daughter. The reason for this was the parents of both the child actors pulled them from the shoot after seeing the potentially disturbing attack scene being shot. Unfortunately the two children were taken before they could be looped for the audio. See more »

Quotes

Wendy Flemming: [in tears] Stephanie, something's wrong with me and I don't know what it is. I've been having these awful nightmares, these headaches, the hair, it's driving me up the wall.
Stephanie: Have some coffee.

Unexpectedly Creepy
9 October 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The plot of this movie features seemingly normal people going crazy and slaughtering their family and friends. The carnage is mostly off screen but there are some disturbing scenes. Zalman King is trying to find out what is happening as one of the casualties was a friend. When the first person goes crazy, their makeup- though minimal- is surprising and really creepy. In fact, if I saw someone who looked like that I would run away screaming. This movie was better than I expected and did not telegraph every single plot point ahead of time. It's got a typical 70s feel to it, but I like that. A good movie to watch with friends, but I'm telling you, when you see the first killer you will be unprepared for his creepiness - so don't watch it alone.
