A dark presence is creeping over the city, and a group of innocent teenagers is in its path. When Gerald, a psychotic, escapes from a mental institution leaving a wrath of murders behind him, he heads for the city and straight to the cemetery. We believe it's a simple murder mystery. But when the hip kids from Kent High School decide to hang out in the same cemetery that night, they, too, become taken over by the creatures from the dead who lurk there. One by one, they are overcome by these demons of the night. By day, the kids appear normal. But at night, they turn into the same ghouls who devoured them. Their only goal: to transform the rest of humanity into creatures from the dead. It isn't long before Mel, a loner at the High School, starts to take notice.
