Whilst investigating a series of mysterious deaths, Detectives Jerry Callum (Ed Nelson) and Gordon Mullin (James Eustermann) with the help of psychic Alley Oates (Deborah Rose), at the county morgue, unwittingly reactivate an ancient oriental curse. Joined by a trapped pathologist, an orderly and a failed suicide they fight for their lives. Only the lucky don't survive, as survival is a fate worse than death. Officious night receptionist Miss Poopinplatz (Phyllis Diller) - battle axe extraordinaire - and Floofsonis, her yapping poodle fall prey to the curse. They turn into carnivorous distortions of outrageous proportions, and turn against each other. Their worst nightmare comes true when they try to escape from the 9ft Poopinplatz and 10ft Floofsonis ghoul, complete with poodle cut and pink ribbon.
