What is the deadly secret haunting the Engel's family? Young co-ed Scotty (Rebecca Balding, The Boogens) is unable to find housing on the campus. She finds a vacancy at the Engels' mansion, now a boarding house for college students. Mrs. Engels (Yvonne de Carlo, TV's The Munsters) and her son seem nice enough, but it becomes clear to Scotty that something is not right at her new residence. When her fellow boarders begin dying, two detectives (Cameron Mitchell, Toolbox Murders and comedian Avery Schreiber, in a serious role) must solve the mystery of the Engels' boarding house before the body count rises. Written and produced by Ken and Jim Wheat, the creative team behind Pitch Black, The Fly II and A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, and featuring horror icon Barbara Steele (Black Sunday) in an unforgettable role, Silent Scream was one of the most successful independent horror films of the slasher era.
