While on their way through a dark south Louisiana night as a hurricane is brewing, Dr. Zack Peters (C. Thomas Howell) and his female companion are driven off the road by an unseen assailant. Dr. Peters awakes alone in a remote old house having his wounds tended by a strange nurse (Savannah Bouchér). Groggy from his injuries and the sedatives that she gave him, he is incoherent, unable to walk, and doesn’t know where his companion is. He soon learns that his companion is missing and that he is the prisoner of this sadistic nurse along with other long-term patients in this eerie hospice of torture, pain, and cruelty. Dr. Peters must fight off and out-wit Nursie and her deranged brother Raymond (David Parker) if he and a beautiful mysterious girl (Frieda Jane), whom he discovers trapped in the house, are to escape this bayou hell and save their own lives.
