A homicidal maniac escapes from a mental institution, and embarks on a bloody mission to track down the pretty young object of his obsession as two police detectives race to find him before nightfall. The first time Adam Resnik kidnapped Kelly, he slaughtered her boyfriend. They tried to lock him up, but no cell is capable of containing Adam's unbridled rage. Meanwhile, in Moonlight Bay, Kelly and her friends prepare to party all night. Now, if the sun should fall before Detectives Raynor and Molloy capture the madman who thrives in the dark, odds are Kelly and her friends will be dead by dawn.
