Mari and Phylis are attacked by a group of four convict-psychopaths. The evil rapist/murderers unknowingly take refuge in one of the girls' parents' house and when they find out what's happened, it is the parents who turn psycho and avenge the children's deaths.
Three decades of notoriety, urban mythology and varying degrees of banishment have done nothing to diminish the shocking impact of Craven's rape-revenge movie. Sartorially dated certainly, but still powerful, disturbing and raw.
