Miguel (Alexander Waechter), a young man with a seriously disfigured
face, has spent part of his life in a psychiatric asylum for having
killed a girl who refused to have sex with him. But now his sister
Manuela (Nadja Gerganoff) has agreed to take care of him & takes him
to live with her & their rich aunt, who run a language boarding
school on the side. Of course no sooner is Miguel arriving there
do the killings start. But is it really Miguel ? Or is it his sister who
he had a sexual relationship with ? The language teacher Alvaro
(Christoph Moosbrugger) perhaps ? Cute gardener Antonio (Peter
Exacoustos) ? Is it maybbe even someone else ? No, it's Manuela &
Alvaro, who have a secret affair, alright, as final girl Angela (Olivia
Pascal) has to find out after heaps of gory murders quite physically.
You see, they want to get aunty's money, which she has entirely left to
Miguel (aunty was meanwhile killed by our 2 villains by the way), but

who has actually saved Angela from Alvaro once already, has other ideas,
though they involve for some reason killing Angela himself (!) - he
doesn't quite succeed, though, ending up with a knife through the
throat. Our killing couple meanwhile has a fight that involves a
chainsaw, leaving Alvaro dead of course, while Manuela gets her reward
from a not quite dead Miguel. Angela survives of course.

it's rather tame not only by Franco-standards) - making this a rather
