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.
Some of the early scenes at the mental hospital were not actually shot by director Larry Stewart. Peter Crane was originally attached to the film but the production got off to a rough start as shooting fell behind schedule and the budget started to be exceeded. Producers brought in Stewart to replace Crane on the film.
Well, the nightmare ends with this stranger coming in and fighting with my father. And the strange man ends up catching on fire and burning to death. It's always the same; the last image is of his whole body engulfed in flames.
Peter: That's beautiful. ...
Kelly's mother runs outside to give her husband his glasses. Just after she mentions him "forgetting his head if it wasn't attached" the scene cuts to the car driving away. On the left, there is a crew member standing with his arms crossed.
The UK video version was pre-cut by 59 secs with edits to a man on fire during a nightmare scene, shots of a man being stabbed with a rake, and a sequence which intercuts the stabbing of a woman with a sex scene. The 2003 Pegasus DVD is fully uncut.
