Plot[edit]

A decade ago, an orphanage has been rebuilt after being burned down following accusations of child molestation and abuse from the building's custodian, resulting him to a psychotic breakdown leading him to a mass murder. Years later, a group of medical students are brought in by pediatrician-turned doctor to rebuild the building as a foster home, unbeknownst that a masked assailant is within the area and is stalking them.

Reception[edit]

In his overview of horror films from the 1980s, Scott Aaron Stine described the film as "effortless tripe" and that "There is nothing, I repeat, nothing worthwhile or even remotely worthwhile or even remotely memorable about this waste of celluloid."[1]
