An obsesve scientist Dr. Pretorius (Ted Sorel) and his asstant (Jeffrey Combs) have
invented ‘The Resonator’,
a device degned to stimulate the brain’s pineal gland and expand the powers of the mind. The machine gives them more than they bargained for however when a parallel universe inhabited by slimy creatures ready to prey on humans reveals itself. Pretorious meets a sticky end, returns as a grotesque, deformed being and all manner of depravity ensues.
