Description

A woman buys a Zuni fetish doll as a gift for her boyfriend. The doll is called He Who Kills, and is supposed to be possessed by the spirit of a Zuni warrior which is kept at bay by a chain. The chain is accidently broken and the doll comes to life, chasing the woman around her apartment with a butcher knife. The woman tries to destroy the doll, but ends up being possessed by its spirit,and waits for the woman's overbearing mother to come to the apartment.
