Meg (Heather Bolton) is a typical girl next door beleaguered by a haunted car in this light thriller by director Gaylene Preston. Like most young women, Meg suffers from overprotective parents, at least from her perspective, and as a way to assert her independence she buys a used Jaguar. When odd occurrences in the car seem a little paranormal to Meg, she begins to investigate the Jag's history. Much to her surprise, she discovers that the car's previous owner was murdered. Added to that chilling history is the equally odd Mr. Wrong (David Letch) and a suspicion that she is going to be the next victim.
