After reburying the remains, Randy becomes facinated with the idea of contacting the dead. Chanting an incantation from a book of witchcraft, he unleashes a scratching, clawing, growling spirit that attacks him nightly before turning on his mother and sister. Desperate to send the demon back from where he'd summoned it, he turns to a Wiccan white witch who is overpowered by its force. At the edge of insanity, Randy meets Nora Rainer, a healer who is experienced in dealing with demonic spirits.
