The shocking news of the gruesome, sex-related homicide of medical student Ray Harris spreads like wildfire in the Linda Vista Community Hospital, where the brutally slain student was found in his dorm. Was it a deviant S&M game gone horribly wrong or is a deranged campus sex killer lurking somewhere out there? Soon, as the police investigation continues, a strange connection between the highly experimental hallucinogen "Taldon" and the peculiar 1973 case of John and Wilma Hopper emerges, while Ray's friends, one by one, start being stalked by an obscure pair of insane sociopaths with only one intention: to ravish them to death. Before long, the bright red blood will flow fresh and warm, so, how could one escape when the obscure enemy lives inside his head? Or maybe he doesn't? Written by Nick Riganas

User Reviews

What was the target audience!?
30 August 2019 | by RatedVforVinnySee all my reviews

Some drug induced shock tactics can't save, or paper over the cracks. Bizarre and disturbing are usually (at least) interesting in the movies but this one tries way to hard and any fantastic notions are quickly replaced by rape and graphic violence.
