Synopsis

Little wheelchair-bound Richard is left by his parents at a strange summer camp. After one of the kids apparently drowns in a lake, the others begin murdering, one by one, the counselors, thinking they are aliens out to conquer the earth. Richard then tells this to the head counselor, but the other kids find out and want to kill him. As Richard flees he finds out that the counselors really were aliens, who then escape into outer space carrying away the entire camp to an unknown faraway destination.
