Horace Pinker, a murderer on the loose, unleashes his wrath on a small town. A young college football player named Jon Parker forges a psychic link with him during a dream state and is able to help the police bring him into custody. The connection goes even deeper: Parker happens to be the son of the police officer investigating the case. Horace receives the death penalty for his crimes. Undeterred, he uses the energy of the electric chair to exit his body and inhabit another. Pinker possesses bodies to continue his murderous spree.

This movie straddles the line between reality and supernatural. The beginning portion focuses on events created by a human antagonist, while the second half focuses on events controlled by a supernatural being. Jon Parker maintains his connection with Pinker in an effort to catch him, even in the supernatural state. This effort pairs the two characters throughout the duration of the movie.
