A gay 16-year-old Eddie runs away from home, where he's constantly harassed by his father. He meets up with his friend Michael and together they go to the gay disco, 'Fruit Machine' where they witness the brutal killing of the owner. Now they are on a terrifying run for their lives - however after Eddie visits a dolphin show, he's more concerned about their life than his own

Qvamp says:

A strange movie from the 80s that showcases the problems of gay teens at the time. The characters and plot do reflect the times. The characters appear somewhat stereotypical and offensive by today's standards.

The plot has some significant holes and parts that just don't make sense. The killer is almost magically able to find these boys, no matter where they go, and the presence of a ghostly apparition that appears whenever water is present is never explained.
