Dan Stevens is the sheriff of a small Texas town who checks out a disturbance which turns to murder. The killer is still in the house and he tries to kill Dan, but Dan stops him and arrests him. The killer attempts to flee, but is shot and killed and is taken to a medical institute. Three doctors, led by Dr. Philip Spires, operate on the killer and using a formula the doctors made, they bring him back to life. If that's not bad enough, the formula also made the killer indestructible. Dr. Tom Halman tries to stop the killer, but he and his wife are killed. After the two remaining doctors are killed, the killer goes after Dr. Halman's sister Alison, and it's up to Sheriff Dan Stevens to stop him.
The stunts were exceedingly complex for the time. To prepare for them, it took associate producer / stunt coordinator Aaron Norris and his team days of preparation and hours of rehearsal for a split second of on-screen action. Stunts included truck crashes; falls from great heights; a man being struck from a speeding truck; a man holding on while being dragged from underneath; a three0quarter-burn, in which a man had 75% of his body set on fire; plus many more fights, knockouts, explosions and shootings.

A neat nailbiter and an unexpected flick for Norris
I liked it. With Norris you expect lots of martial arts and/or guns versus normal criminals and terrorists. But then you run across this flick! This is as close to a supernatural flick as you can come without any actual suernatural elements. The mute killer is one scary guy, far more terrifying than Jason Vorhees or Michael Meyers. Oh, and like all good Frankensteinian critters, he's still there at the end, waiting for a sequel that will never get made. As most people are used to seeing Stephen Furst doing comedy, it's really disturbing to see him die in a flick.
