Cult Café – VHS Night!



Seventeen-year-old high school senior Billy Lynch (Jimmy McNichol) was raised by his maternal aunt, Cheryl Roberts (Susan Tyrrell), with who he has lived since the age of three, when his parents died in a tragic accident. As never married Aunt Cheryl has not dated over that time, it has been only her and Billy in the big, old house next to the woods. Billy hopes to get a basketball scholarship to the University of Denver, where his girlfriend of one year, Julie Linden (Julia Duffy), will be attending. Aunt Cheryl, in her possessiveness of Billy, doesn't let Julie into the house and doesn't want Billy to go away to college. What those around her don't know is that Cheryl is deranged and will do whatever it takes to keep Billy all to herself. What Billy also does not know is that there is an unknown third in his and Aunt Cheryl's relationship, that third who is either the cause of or has exacerbated her derangement. Aunt Cheryl's actions lead to Billy being implicated in a murder and Billy's plea of innocence is not helped by the narrow-mindedness of the lead police detective, hyper-masculine Lieutenant Joe Carlson (Bo Svenson). Billy, those close to him and anyone who gets too close to discovering the truth about Aunt Cheryl could be in danger at her hands in the process.
