Barbra Blair and her brother, Johnny, drive to visit their father’s grave. Johnny is not happy about making the long trip. He bugs his sister as they walk among the graves: “They’re coming to get you, Barbra.”

A strange man in the graveyard then appears and attacks Barbra. Johnny tries to rescue his sister but the strange man pushes him down to the ground where Johnny strikes his head on a gravestone. He seems to be dead or knocked out.

Barbra runs away with the stranger following her and eventually arrives at an old farmhouse.
