Storyline

A mysterious serial killer is killing several female co-eds on and off a college campus in Oklahoma and the only clues are gold medallions left by the bodies. A grizzled police detective sets out to find the killer, but is unaware that all the killings are connected to a Satanic cult. The detective, Ron, turns from the hunter to the hunted when he sees that no one around him can be trusted, not even his own daughter. Written by matt-282

A slasher film with no nudity.
7 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a nutshell some serial killer is avenging the burning of witches by collecting body parts from his victims.

This is reportedly the first direct-to-video movie, and it looks it.

It seems to have been made with college actors, as they are thoroughly unconvincing when they plead for their lives.

The shower scene, a common feature of slasher films shows nothing. We don't even see the girl hacked to dead; just blood splatter. In fact, we never really see the kind of hacking we expect to see in slasher films.

It was an interest story, but a poor slasher film.
