Five women, Linda (Gail Harris), Jessica (Melissa Moore), Kimberly (Stacia Zhivago), Suzanne (Barbii) and Janey (Dana Bentley) buy the old Hokstedter place for their new sorority house. They get it cheap because of the bloody incidents from five years before committed by Hokstedter. They decide to stay in it for the night so they can meet the movers in the morning, despite the electricity and the phones not working. Janey tells the group of the murders years before, putting the group on edge. As it turns to night, a storm rolls in and the girls are crept out by they neighbor Orville Ketchum (Peter Spellos) who recalls the night of the murders, and how Hokstedter was defeated. He gives them the keys to the basement before returning home. The girls decide to explore the basement, and find Hokstedter's tools and also a ouija board. Meanwhile, Lt. Mike Block (Jürgen Baum) and Sgt. Phyliss Shawlee (Toni Naples) set out in the storm to get to the Hokstedter house after they receive a disturbance call from the house, and also suspect Orville had something to do with the murders, although Mike was unable to pin anything on him at the time.
After taking showers, the group decide to use the ouija board to contact Hokstedter, however after they become too scared decide to go to bed. Suzanne and Janey have an argument, causing Janey to return downstairs to drink the rest of the alcohol. However she is attacked and stabbed to death. Soon after, Suzanne goes downstairs to find Janey, however can not find her. She alerts the others of Janey's disappearance, and the group split up to search. Suzanne goes up to the attic, but is locked in. She accidentally stands on a bear trap before the killer stabs her to death. Meanwhile, Mike and Phyliss travel to a strip club to talk to Candy (Bridget Carney) a survivor of the Hokstedter massacre. However, Candy can not recall if Orville was part of the murders.
Linda, Jessica and Kimberly begin to think Janey and Suzanne are playing a trick on them, and so go down to the basement to find them. Just as they are about to give up, they find their bodies strung up on the ceiling. The girls run upstairs and arm themselves with knives before attempting to leave. However they run into Orville and so retreat back into the house and lock the doors and windows. As the survivors become more panicked, they realize they left the attic window open. They run upstairs and lock the window, however Kimberly realizes that he has already gotten into the house. She panics and runs downstairs. While Linda remains in the attic, Jessica goes after Kimberly. Kimberly bumps into Orville and hides in a bathroom, but the killer gets in and murders her.
While Linda hides in the attic, Orville enters. Linda manages to stab him numerous times before finally chocking him. She goes downstairs in search of Kimberly and Jessica, but instead finds Kimberly dying in a bathtub. Linda is attacked by a still alive Orville, but Linda overpowers him and drowns him in the toilet. She goes downstairs to find Jessica, but answers the phone when it rings. A woman asks for her husband, Hokstedter, before warning her he is in the house, before hanging up. Linda is lured into the basement by Jessica, who reveals herself to have been possessed by Hokstedter. Jessica chases Linda upstairs where the two fight, before Orville reveals himself to still be alive. Orville stabs Jessica, however Jessica knocks him out, before Linda manages to defeat Jessica, stabbing her in the neck.
The next morning, Mike arrives with police officers after the movers found the bodies. They find Linda still alive, but now possessed by Hokstedter.
