At the Ravenscroft Institute, an all-girl school for juvenile delinquents, several girls find themselves going missing as they are assaulted by a man in a Richard Nixon mask, who drags them to the basement of the school and immures them into darken chambers to die a slow and agonizing death by way of entombment. A new teacher arrives at the school and becomes a target of the killer.

    In a contemporary review, Variety described the film as browsing through several themes of Edgar Allan Poe with "dull results". The review noted the historical footnote of the film being the final film featuring Carradine, but noted that it disappoints as "there's only a few seconds of blurry Carradine footage." The review noted that audiences may be disappointed that Karen Witter remains clothed throughout the film, while noting that former porn actress Ginger Lynn "has one of her best mainstream jobs as a tough-talking inmate who proves to be an excellent screamer."
