A gruesome accident occurs, involving a folding machine at an old laundry. But the machine seems to have a mind of its own, and deals quickly with those who get too close. Detective John Hunton (Ted Levie) decides to investigate. He finds the owner of the laundry, Bill Gartley (Robert Englund) and a folding machine which has acquired a taste for the flesh of human beings. But is there more to Bill Gartley than meets the eye, does he know what monster hides behind the machine? Is he sacrificing the virgin daughters of the community leaders to the big rolling, pressing and starching monster?
