Director Robert "Freddy Krueger" Englund dials up a contemporary gothic tale of high-tech horror in 976-Evil. High school underdog Hoax Wilmoth (Stephen Geoffreys, Fright Night), fills up the idle hours in his seedy little hometown fending off the local leather-jacketed thugs, avoiding his overbearing, religious fanatic mother (Sandy Dennis) and dreaming of a date with trailer park temptress Suzie (Lezie Deane). But his quietly desperate life takes a terrifying turn when his cousin, Spike, introduces him to an unusual new hobby - phoning in for his Horrorscope. Because instead of the slightly kinky astrological predictions he's expecting, Hoax is hooked-up with a compellingly hideous demonicforce that slowly begins to overtake his entire life. Now there's more than just a phone bill to pay for anyone and everyone who ever dared cross "the neighborhood nerd".
