The mansion. The madness. The maniac. No escape. The townsfolk have always been wary of the Butler mansion - a creepy old haunted house that sits high above the town. So when the grandson of the man who built it arrives to sell it off, people couldn't be happier. But someone has other plans - someone who hides in the house, listening, watching and waiting. Soon people start to die. A couple are axed to death in their bed. A police officer is murdered with a shovel. Has a ghost from the past returned to haunt the town - is it an escaped psycho from the local sanatorium...?
