Moving into a new house, Bill and Janet Nelson (Bradford Dillman, Diana Hyland) try to make friends with their neighbors the Standers, only to be put off by the taciturn attitude of Jack Stander (Edward Asner) -- and especially the bizarre behavior of Jack's young son, Eddie (Mickey Sholdar). It soon becomes obvious that Eddie is emotionally disturbed -- in fact, he is on the verge of becoming a murderer. Only after the Nelsons nearly lose their lives thanks to the boy's sadistic pranks do they discover the reason behind Eddie's homicidal streak.
