While receiving a routine check-up, a woman finds herself stranded on the hospital's eighth floor, while someone dressed as a doctor is intent on her never leaving, even if it means killing any staff member who comes into contact with her.
While trying to understand a frightening reoccurring nightmare, a pledge is coaxed into breaking into her father's department store by her sorority sisters, where a deranged killer targets the girls and their boyfriends.
A horribly disfigured lawyer, wrongfully pronounced dead after a terrible car accident, is taken to an asylum for dissection, only to come back alive, kill everyone, and make the asylum his killing grounds.
Julie is an advice columnist for the city newspaper who begins to receive anonymous notes threatening murder and worse. At about the same time, female members of the group therapy session she attends are being stabbed, one by one, by an unknown assailant. Is there a connection? If so, why do the notes talk about murder with a gun, while the murder victims are being stabbed? At first, the police, her ex-husband, her therapist and her friends all assure her that the notes are probably unrelated, and hoax; but with time, it becomes apparent that someone close to her is responsible. Is it her therapist, Pieter, who has sex with his patients just before they are murdered? Or Pieter's daughter, who resents Julie for Julie's romantic involvement with Pieter? Is it Julie's ex-husband, who never really wanted their divorce? Or maybe Gilbert, the eccentric building maintenance man whom many people believe is a little crazy anyway? Just about everyone around her seems mentally disturbed enough ...Written by

Writer and Director David Paulsen was told by Producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus that he had one month to have a screenplay ready that could be shot for under a million dollars, and that could feature Klaus Kinski, who was under contract. Paulsen also had only one month to secure a crew and shooting locations. See more »
In the note that Julie reads is different from the note seen.
The note reads:
"Murder I Think about it more and more the rejection is getting so hard to take nobody cares about me I feel so ugly my head is breaking maybe you'll understand the bullets in the chamber the guns ready blow i don't want murders but I have to make them hear me can you understand help me I'm scared to death."
However Julie reads
"Murder I think about it more and more they talk forever about their stupid problems and i'm the one who's miserable I want to shoot them through the head and i can do it I've got his gun you're one of them i'm going to kill you to."
However next we see the letter it reads exactly as Julie read it See more »
The movie is unequivocally terrible. However, I enjoyed watching Kinski nonetheless. Then again, I always do, regardless of the quality of the movie. That's probably just a personal bias. Watch for the scene in which he runs around wielding a hammer. It was a hoot!
