The story revolves around seven college girls staying in a Sorority House. It's the end of the year and all seven girls are graduating, planning to hold a huge party in the house at the end of the week. Unfortunately for them their house mother, the imperious Mrs. Slater, forbids it as for some reason she always closes the house on the same date every year before the other college houses close. The girls plan to get back at her by pulling a little prank which backfires and ends up getting Mrs. Slater killed. Panicking, the girls hide the body in the pool and continue with their graduation party. Meanwhile someone is stalking the people at the party and murdering them with Mrs. Slater's own walking cane. Perhaps Mrs. Slater is NotQuiteDead after all?
