Synopsis
There is an outbreak of violent behavior at the exclusive Catholic boarding school for boys, where Joe Dobbs is a popular English instructor and Jerome Malley is a widely-disliked Latin and Greek teacher. When Malley begins to receive threatening notes and phone calls, he assumes that Dobbs is the culprit. Paul Reis is hired as the new PE teacher and comes to believe that the violence and disharmony at the school may be caused by demonic possession.
