SYNOPSIS: At a small Californian community college, co-eds are getting murdered at an alarming rate. The prime suspect is the dean, but the slayings continue even when he's placed behind bars. The reason is that a Satanic 976 "Horrorscope" hotline has given him the power to astrally project. A gorgeous blonde named Robin is caught up in the plot when approached by a wandering occult biker named Spike (the survivor of the first 976-EVIL). She and Spike are the only ones who know the truth, and they must kill the killer, or be killed themselves.

I don't even know why she's looking for Spike here at these cliffs, he's supposed to be on a highway miles away. Suddenly Grubeck's got her! Just as suddenly, Spike shows up and saves the day! Well, at least we thought it was Spike. It's really Spike's "ghost" or "angel" or whatever, not that we care. Clip leads up to the ending.

Okay. You're not supposed to be in that office, you sneak around furtively. You know that the villain is a Satanic phone line. The phone rings with an eerie echoing sort of sound. What do you do? Hello?
