For years, the Lenz house stands vacant, but in time it's purchased and renovated as the new home for a college sorority. A few days before Christmas, sorority sisters -- Dana, Melissa, Kelli and Heather -- are enjoying a quiet evening with their house mother, Barbara MacHenry, exchanging gifts and swapping stories before heading home for a holiday break. It is then that Barbara remembers the story of Billy Lenz, a severely maladjusted child, who finally snaps under years of brutal treatment by his family, killing and eating them in an explosion of violence on Christmas Eve. The atmosphere in the house is peaceful until the women receive the first in a series of disturbing telephone calls and it doesn’t take long for the girls to learn that Billy has escaped after years in a mental institution, and has come back to the house where he grew up to once again spill blood for the Christmas season. This movie is rated R for strong horror, violence and gore, sexuality, nudity and language.
