Blackie (Jack Oblivian) is an immortal from the Killer Frequency. He was sent to Earth in 1954 to prove his worth as an assassin by killing exactly 12 random victims within a certain span of time, something he failed to do. Forty years later he has returned to take the remaining three lives -- no more, no less -- that he requires to fulfill his prophecy. A lot has changed since he's been gone, though, and there are forces conspiring to keep him Earthbound. He takes on a vicious, trigger-happy femme fatale (Kerine Elkins) who exceeds the quota when she murders both of her parents, so they must drive around with her mother's corpse in the backseat until a new victim can be chosen by the Elder of the Lo-Fi Frequency (veteran roadshow man David F. Friedman). Meanwhile, Blackie's insane best friend (Mike Maker) falls in love with Goliatha (D'Lana Tunnell), a motorcycle-riding sideshow girl with a very short attention span ("What did you say, anyway?") who might have something to do with the Apocalypse. Goliatha has been chosen as the final victim, but she's arrested by the Men in Black (played by all three members of Japanese trash-rockers Guitar Wolf) for the crimes that Blackie has committed, and if she dies in the electric chair before he can get to her, all hope is lost. This fast-paced sci-fi exploitation feature features a raw-boned musical score from a variety of high quality punk-garage bands including '68 Comeback, Mick Collins, and the Royal Pendletons.
