A group of young tourists take an unexpected side trip to a small, mysterious Greek Island. When they arrive they find the island's village deserted except for a strange woman who wanders the streets and disappears as quickly as she is seen. Attempting to return to their ship, they find it has drifted away from the shore. They must spend the night on the island, waiting for the tide to come in again. In the house they decide to use, they find a blind 15 year old girl swinging a knife in panic. She stabs one of the men before they can subdue her. She then tells them of a madman who stalks the island and smells of death and blood. One by one, the small group faces the terrors of the island. Their numbers dwindle until Julie (Tisa Farrow) discovers the madman's horrible secret, locked away in a hidden room amid the decaying corpses of his victims. But before she can find her remaining companions, he lunges at her from the darkness and stalks her through the crumbling mansion. Even as she runs from him, she knows that she will have to face him in her final confrontation with The Grim Reaper.
