SynopsisThe film tells the bleak tale of Jennifer (Rhonda St. John), an adult film starlet who after suffering a mental break on the set of one of her films seeks out the help of Dr. Denver who prescribes Jennifer an antipsychotic in the hope that it will calm her maddening delusions. Soon after leaving the care of Dr. Denver, Jennifer is attacked on a desert highway and rescued by a ragged cult of hippies in search of a desolate farmhouse where a series of vicious murders took place. Having no place to go, Jennifer takes in with the gang and soon finds she is drawn to their Svengali leader Damon Gray (Vin Crease). This dark bond will eventually pit Jennifer against Damon in a bloody battle between the unholy sickness that dwells deep within her soul and the cultist madman with whose fate she is inextricably linked.
