Plot – Spoilers:
It’s 1942 and a young boy is solving a jigsaw puzzle. His mother walks in and indulgently looks over his shoulder only to be shocked when she sees the puzzle is of a naked woman. She loses it and starts rummaging through stuff in his room but gets an even bigger shock when her timid little son buries an axe in her head. When the cops arrive, he hides in the closet and tells them a ‘big man’ did it.
Forty years later at a University, a maniac in a dark suit armed with a chainsaw begins dismembering women on campus for no particular reason other than them being hot. The police are unable to figure out his identity and so send an undercover lady cop as a tennis coach and bait for the serial killer.
