Kathy is in a coma after a prank goes horribly wrong. But you better watch out! Because mistreated Kathy is a gifted telepath. So she psychically reaches out and possesses new student Eva, using her as an instrument of revenge and retribution against the nasty girls at St. Mary's College who ruined her life.

Flawed but watchable later Fulci effort restrains the gore and ups the atmosphere, courtesy of dense blue lights. Still...Fulci always delivers a fun ride and here's no exception. Highlights include a death by live snails (the little critters' own revenge for escargot?) and Kim's run through the college finding her boyfriend's corpse behind every door.

Also known as Ænigma.
