Crown International's leading sleaze director, Hikmet Avedis (The Fifth Floor) was behind this bloody horror film. Greg and Christie are a young married couple who are investigating the mysterious death of Christie's father. Their search takes them to mortician Hank Andrews (Christopher George), who leads a Satanic cult along with his demented son Paul (Bill Paxton in an early role). However, even Christie's own mother (Lynda Day George) may be in on the series of embalming-needle murders surrounding the mortuary. This occasionally creepy chiller co-stars horror regulars Michael Berryman, Paul Smith, and Alvy Moore. Porn auteur Gary Graver (aka Robert McCallum) was the cinematographer.
