In 1935, a lowlife mobster, Nicky Rocco, is betrayed and executed in the swampy backwoods as his pregnant gun-moll, Ruby Claire, watches. He swears vengeance with his dying breath, and then she suddenly goes into labour. In 1951, Ruby runs a backwoods drive-in theatre, employes some ex-mobsters, and has a 16-year-old daughter, Leslie Clair, who had been mute since birth. Bizarre accidents claim the lives of one employee after another. Then Leslie shows strange behavior, and then begins to speak...in her dead father's voice. A demonic, perverted Nicky Rocco possesses the girl's body and terrorizes Ruby with levitations, telekinesis, maniacal laughing, and bizarre sexual aggression.
A love affair with the supernatural.

- Includes a scene reworking the "spider-walk" sequence cut from the original version of The Exorcist (1973).
The producer chose to change the ending, and both Curtis Harrington and Piper Laurie refused to be involved in the re-shoot. It was allegedly shot by Stephanie Rothman, who has neither confirmed nor denied her involvement. This ending, featured in the TV commercials at the time of the theatrical release, helped make it the box office success it was.
The version broadcast on television contained a lot of footage not seen in the theatrical version. The footage was allegedly shot by Stephanie Rothman, new for the TV sale, not scenes deleted from the original version. This version was also available on VHS tape. The DVD release is the theatrical version.
