SYNOPSIS: At a small Californian community college, co-eds are getting murdered at an alarming rate. The prime suspect is the dean, but the slayings continue even when he's placed behind bars. The reason is that a Satanic 976 "Horrorscope" hotline has given him the power to astrally project. A gorgeous blonde named Robin is caught up in the plot when approached by a wandering occult biker named Spike. She and Spike are the only ones who know the truth, and they must kill the killer, or be killed themselves.
