The film centers around young Jonathan Parker, who starts having PropheticDreams of SerialKiller Horace Pinker after he kills most of his foster family. Seeking justice, Jonathan turns to his police officer foster father and convinces him that he can track Pinker through his dreams. With Jonathan's help police are able to capture Pinker, who is sentenced to die in the electric chair. However, before the moment of his execution Pinker makes a DealWithTheDevil and becomes one with the electricity after his execution. This gives him the ability to possess the bodies of others, allowing him to continue his killing spree from beyond the grave.
