Who can you trust with your darkest secrets, if not a priest? When you enter the confessional, you naturally assume that no one will be taping your confessions and using them against you in various blackmail schemes. But such is the case with the confessional occupied by Father Xavier Meldrum (Anthony Sharp). When a young woman confesses her private shame, her life is turned upside down by the cunning clergyman. Bodies pile up, suspicions are aroused. And the ghastly chain of events that ensue leave a trail of death and madness no decent priest could pardon.
