Written by Giulio De Gaetano

As Nola’s increasingly psychotic anger is vented during her sessions, brutal murders befall those at whom it’s directed. When Frank’s daughter is abducted he is led to Raglan’s Institute and a terrifying, repellent final confrontation, renowned as one of the most notorious scenes in horror cinema.
