Produced as a cinematic parody of New York City's famed "Goth" scene, director J.J. Connelly's bloody horror comedy about a group of college students who summon a demonic killer stars many members of the very sub-culture it sets out to skewer. Convicted of unspeakable crimes against humanity and swiftly executed, Nick Dread is sent to answer to a higher power. But Nick Dread was no normal mortal; in a past life he was a Catholic priest and inquisitor who was burned at the stake by his superiors when he dared to suggest that innocent women were being accused of witchery and killed. Flash forward to the 21st Century, where a society of "Goths" dubbed the "Scorpion Society" are known for throwing the best events in New York City. Rumor has it that they possess supernatural powers. To be welcomed into their inner-circle is both an honor and a privilege to those who dare to dabble in the dark arts, and now a group of nerdy college girls are about to be the V.I.P. guests at their latest event. When their occult ceremony unexpectedly summons the vengeful spirit of Nick Dread, the stage is set for wholesale, supernatural slaughter.
