“In a quiet, small town the peace is broken when a brutal serial killer begins a terrifying campaign targeting local teens - horribly mutilating the victims.

“Investigating law enforcement officer John Brady begins to suspect the killer may be linked to the high school’s psychology department and their research into behavioural control .... ” - dvd sleeve blurb.

Though set in Illinois, USA, the film was shot in Auckland, New Zealand, and one of the two producers is John Barnett. Beryl Te Wiata is one of the supporting cast and ‘Jumping Out a Window’ by Pop Mechanix features on the soundtrack (along with The Birthday Party and Tangerine Dream).
