Linda is viciously raped by a man in a hockey mask.

At a support center, Linda finds some other women who had been assault and received the same treatment.

Director Bob Kelljan began his career as a television actor, appearing in numerous episodes of The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock and Outer Limits. He became a director for American International Studio in the early seventies (he's best known for the blaxploitation horror opus SCREAM BLACULA SCREAM).

Regarding the main female members of the cast, each has a background in American television. However, Jo Ann Harris began her career with the marijuana-grindhouse motion picture MARYJANE (1968) before delving into decades of TV work which included guest shots on Dragnet, Gunsmoke, Mod Squad and Hawaii Five-O. In 1989, she became one of the voice actors for The Simpsons. Ms Harris has since retired from the industry. Co-star Lisa Moore also ventured down the television highway, featured in numerous projects from Mannix to Ironside. She paused only to make a handful of feature films which include this one and the blaxploitation classic HITMAN. Ms Moore died in a car accident April 1989 at age 48. The third actress here is Jennifer Lee who had considerably less experience that her co-stars.
