They pull into a small clearing in the woods to make out and are attacked by an assailant wearing a cloth mask as Phantom killer from the film. The Phantom killer murders Corey but Jami escapes. She goes directly to the police, but the killings continue and the police have no leads. Jami's interest in the case overwhelms her and she starts researching the original killings on her own.
