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.
In the mid-'70s, a cult group called Unity Field commits mass suicide, but a young girl survives. After being in a coma for thirteen years she wakes up in a psyche ward, not remembering the incident. The psychiatrist tries to help her remember, but she begins seeing the leader of the cult talking to her from the grave, and the other members of her therapy group begin to commit suicide around her. Or is it suicide?Written by

Mm, you know, I thought you might need some company tonight. It's safest here, really. The police are here, I'm here. We're going to have a nice, boring evening tonight. I even brought provisions: pure, unadulterated junk food. At this point who cares about chemicals?

The 18-rated UK video release of this film was cut by 22 seconds by the BBFC to remove closeup shots of self-mutilation with a knife and a scalpel, and to reduce a scene where a man is repeatedly hit by a car. The cuts were waived by the BBFC in 2018 for DVD/Blu-ray. See more »
I've never heard about this film until my friend told me about it, so I decided to check it out. It wasn't too bad. It was a bit different than the usual horror I'm used to. I'm not sure if this would be classified as horror though. Maybe more of a thriller or something. Can't say I was really dissapointed with it, but it could have had more stuff.
Starts off with this weird '70s cult gathering around an old house. Turns out they're getting ready to be burned to death by their faithful leader and they actually want it to happen. It's supposed to help them all become one with each other. What a waste. Everyone pretty much gets killed except one young girl, who ends up in a coma for 13 years. When she finally wakes up she starts seeing weird visions of the leader of the group and she believes he's after her.
This wasn't a bad film. It had a pretty original plot and the death scenes were cool. There was an interesting twist at the end that made everything fall perfectly into place. The acting was pulled off well and it was a first to see actor Bruce Abbott in another horror film. Last time I saw him it was in the Re-Animator films.
What I didn't like about the movie was the fact that it didn't have as much stuff going on as it could have. I just felt the film was missing something. There weren't any scary or creepy parts. Nothing that will really make the audience jump. I was rather dissapointed with that.
Would have given this film a higher rating if more stuff was going on. Would have given it a lower rating, but I did find it interesting to watch and it did keep my attention going for a while. The twist at the end wasn't bad, but I was kind of dissapointed by it.
