Storyline

Peter Vollmer is the leader of a small neo-Nazi movement in a large American city. He's having trouble getting his message across and seems to alienate people every time he opens his mouth. After a particularly bad rally, he hears a voice and sees a man standing in the shadows. He begins to advise Peter on what to say and how he can structure his message to make it more appealing to his particular audience. Peter has success but his mentor begins pushing him to extremes. There is a limit however and there is a voice of reason in the mob that seemed so willing to follow him. Written by garykmcd

Ghost Of Evil

Dennis Hopper stars as a young Nazi named Peter Vollmer, who stages small rallies in an American city with little success. One day, a mysterious benefactor decides to back Peter with his encouragement and money, and before he knows it, Vollmer is packing in the halls where he gives his stirring speeches, but his long-time involvement with an elderly Jewish man forces this benefactor to tell Peter to either kill the old man, or else he'll come out from the shadows and take over...
