In this 1977 amateur film, Shawn Maloen stars as a powerful and mysterious villain, chasing after bystanders until he ultimately meets his demise (or so the audience is first led to believe). Through a series of editing tricks, the end of the film makes it appear as though the villain has returned as an invisible assailant, out for revenge. A young Malone produced this and many other amateur films in Houston during the 1970s, casting his family and friends as the featured players.
