In a teen chat room, Genevieve Gage (Linda Cardellini), the teenager daughter of detective Mike Gage (Kevin Gage) is invited to a blind date by the cool Capt Howdy (Dee Snider). The guy is indeed a pierced a schizophrenic sick and sadistic maniac, and he kidnaps Genevieve and her friend Tiana Moore (Amal Rhoe). He submits the girls and other adolescents to tortures. When the body of Tiana is found, Mike hunts Capt Howdy and puts him in jail first and then he is sent to a mental institution. Four years later, Capt Howdy is considered rehabilitated and released from the asylum, against the will of the local population. After an incident, Capt Howdy abducts Genevieve again, and Mike promises to kill him.
So much flesh, so little time.

When the mob gathers around Carleton Hendricks' home, someone is holding a sign that says "We're not gonna take it." This is also the title of the biggest single from Dee Snider's band Twisted Sister.
Dee Snider makes at least two references to co-star Robert Englund's most famous character Freddy Krueger. First is as Carleton Hendricks recovers from his fall from the tree. As he sits up he says "What a rush" in a very passable "Freddy" voice, one of the many one-liners uttered by Freddy Krueger during the series. The second reference is when he's fighting Detective Gage in the church. He says "First you dream, then you die," a reference to the plot of the Freddy Krueger/A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) series.
After Capt Howdy is captured and you see the newspaper clippings of the case, Dee Snider wrote all the clippings as spoken in the commentary track. His reason is "for all you DVD nuts out there who'd pause and read them for continuity".
First film that had the words "scenes of torture" included in its MPAA rating, making it officially the first of the torture film genre.
