After receiving an African fertility mask as a gift Ellen tells her husband William that she’s been attacked by masked phantom called ‘the Nightmare Man’. As Ellen’s paranoia increases, William takes Ellen for a road trip to a clinic, only to have their car break down, and when William goes off, Ellen is attacked for real by the Nightmare Man. Fleeing through the dense woods, Ellen seeks shelter in the remote cabin home of Mia, with her friends Jack, Ed, and Trinity, who give her shelter, but are soon besieges in their home by Nightmare Man. But the real horror comes when Ellen slowly reveals to harbor a MORE evil and deadly thing within her which could spell death for everyone involved.
Don Malek (Stephen Geoffreys) isn’t the usual tenant found in the skid row hotels of downtown L.A. Grief-stricken since the murder of his fiancee Katherin, the successful screenwriter-turned murderous vigilante is bent on revenge against studio head Stanley Glissberg, the man cleared of murder charges in Katherin’s death. Don can’t forget – and Glissberg’s going to pay. Enter Don’s tenacious literary agent, Ava Collins (Tiffany Shepis), who tracks him down and wants to sell his manuscript – if there is one – or cut him loose. He assures her he’s holed-up in the cheap room to write, and his story’s a work-in-progress. Adding to his slippery slope, Don calls in a favor from a neighbor, and in doing so, uncovers despicable abuses down the hall. Spitz (Ezra Buzzington) is a hard-drinking former Marine and paraplegic, with a penchant for hookers and a violent streak. When he demands a return of the favor, Don must choose between turning a blind eye, or quickening his own destructive spiral. Add to the mix a relentless homicide detective, a nosy has-been rock star (Corey Haim), an unscrupulous rival agent, and Ava Collins’ increasingly warped frame of mind, and the tenants of the New Terminal Hotel are about to check into a vortex of revenge, madness and murder.
