Martin is a shy boy, troubled, withdrawn. His parents are dead. He is drawn to women—women alone in their houses at night, women he sees on trains, in the supermarket. Martin wants to be close to them, but only when they are dead, when he can have their blood. First, he gives them a shot of painkiller, then he takes out his razor . . . His uncle thinks Martin brings the curse from the Old Country and arranges mirrors, crucifixes, garlic necklaces, even an exorcism.
