Maggie (Jill Schoelen) has been suffering recently from terrifying and realistic dreams. When film students hold a "horror-thon" to raise money for their department, they discover a film from the 1960s called THE POSSESSOR which mirrors the events in Maggie's nightmares. The director of THE POSSESSOR was a maniac and a mass-murderer who killed his wife before an audience and then burned them all alive. Now the students themselves are the victims of a real psychotic killer whose crimes are inspired by the gruesome horror movie.
