Swiss Transylvania: Jennifer (Connelly), insect fancier and daughter of an American actor, arrives at a Swiss girls' school. A killer is loose. Entomologist McGregor (Pleasence, a Scot, it seems) decides that Jennifer should save the land of the cuckoo clock from itself. Where Inspector Geiger (Bauchau) has so far failed - in tracking down the psychopath - a young girl and a sympathetic Great Sarcophagus Fly will succeed. Between shots of stunning mountain scenery there are paranormal breezes, unfeasibly bright night-lighting and buckets and buckets of maggots.
