Released in 2009, the film follows Jack Riley, just released after spending eleven years in the state asylum after killing fifteen people, including his own mother. Dubbed by the media as Basement Jack because of his penchant for hiding out in the basements of his victims before killing them, he was only seventeen years old at the time. But even though he has been released from the asylum, he hasn’t been cured and soon enough, he starts to kill again. But this time, someone is waiting for him… Haunted by the loss of her family during Jack’s murder spree, Karen Cook has been waiting eleven years for her revenge. She only has to get to Jack before the body count starts to climb again…
