On the night of the full moon, teenagers Julie (Lisa Erickson), Matt (Ben Gilbert), and Tommy (Chad Christian) decide to hold a séance in the local graveyard. They have each brought talismans to protect them from harm. Unfortunately, Tommy's good luck charm is a clay carving his parents brought back from Mexico which is actually an idol of Aztec demon Destacatyl. After Tommy is telekinetically terrorized in his bedroom by the idol and Julie reads an article in the local tabloid about the death of the graveyard's night watchman, the trio brings their story to the article's author Sandy (Susan Stokey, THE TOMB). Although Sandy writes frequently about the paranormal, she is not a believer and does not want to help the kids. Sandy's visiting ex-boyfriend Jerry (Warren Lincoln, TORMENT), on the other hand, is intrigued and takes the idol promising to investigate it. Despite the nightmares and unexplainable happenings, Susan is merely annoyed with Jerry who is becoming obsessed with the idol. And despite all of Jerry's occult research, it is Julie that happens upon the origins of Destacatyl; but it may be entirely too late for them to warn him of the idol's powers and what it demands of its user in return.
