William Cobb is on vacation when he catches a glimpse of Helma, a breathtaking creature who captures his imagination. She has a companion, a frail old man who, according to folklore, is Necros, a dead thing that feeds upon the living. Should Cobb pursues his desires or heed the warnings of the town folk? A night of unbridled passion reveals the terrifing truth. Directed by Highlander's Russell Mulcahy from a story by Brian Lumley.
