Synopsis: To be attacked by a knife-wielding masked stranger in the dead of night could be a woman’s worst nightmare… or her darkest fantasy. But which is it? Both perception and reality are challenged in this taut contemporary thriller.
Lynn Lowry, from David Cronenberg’s SHIVERS, George Romero’s THE CRAZIES, and Paul Schrader’s CAT PEOPLE, delivers a chilling portrayal of a woman in fear for more than her life.
Director/writer Kenneth J. Hall, creator of the PUPPET MASTER series and the critically acclaimed film THE HALFWAY HOUSE, presents this short essay in terror in the tradition of Hitchcock and Dario Argento.

Desperate to find her sister, Larissa Morgan (Janet Tracy Keijser from House on Haunted Hill) goes undercover to investigate the Catholic-run institution.

Cult Queen Mary Woronov (Death Race 2000, Rock N Roll High School, Eating Raoul) stars as Sister Cecelia. Writer/ Director Kenneth J. Hall (creator of the Puppet Master series) combines elements from 60s Lovecraft films, 70s women-in-prison exploitation, and 80s slasher flicks into one sexy and frighteningly funny film!
