Though Kate finds consolation from her drama teacher Ms. Gibby (Margot Kidder), her visions over the dreaded event intensify after witnessing the odd behavior of fellow student George (James Duval), a brooding make-up artist who revels in the theater’s horrific past.

Kate’s sense of dread escalates to a point where her visions of a homicidal Clown not only torment her, but the other students who are soon trapped in the haunted theater with her. The elusive and psychotic figure murders the students, one by one, until finally, when the clock strikes midnight, Kate is left alone to face the Clown and her fate.
