Remake of the 1974 slasher classic where college girls try to avoid the chop. Deranged murderer Billy Lenz (Robert Mann) has escaped from a mental institution and is heading back to the house where he gruesomely murdered his abusive mother years before. After laying empty for years, the house has been renovated, and is now accommodation for a college sorority. Eight college students and their sorority mother, staying a night in the house before going home for Christmas, then start to receive worrying phone calls. It's not long before they find out that Billy is heading their way, and he's not bearing gifts.
