Synopsis/Details: 

Police are desperately trying to find and arrest a serial killer/rapist. JIMMY, a blind 9-year-old Hispanic boy, appears at a police station, claiming to know the identity of the killer, wants to report an undetected road accident, and states that a demonic entity is behind all the killings. He says a demon made the killer rape and kill all those women and now that the killer will be caught, the demon has already found another victim to do its evil deed. Excited to catch the serial killer, Sheila JONES, 25, African American female officer begins investigating Jimmy’s serial killer and accident claims but shrugs off the rest. Jimmy’s information checks out. The serial killer gets arrested and the road accident victims who happen to be Jimmy’s parents are recovered.
Now officer Jones wants to know where Jimmy got all the info. Jimmy begins telling the story:
ALAN, handsome, 23, was just released from prison on parole. He begins to experience horrifying paranormal activities and has strange dreams in which he is told his 55-year-old neighbor CHESTER is the serial killer. Through a female medium, Alan finds out a few human spirits are trying to communicate with him but are being terrorized by a demonic entity. It’s decided that the medium and a priest should visit the following night for an exorcism, during which Alan cannot be at home.
Alan continues to be attacked while at home.
Alan gets to meet 23-year-old gorgeous CRISTAL, the same day. Its love at first sight. Alan is very excited to attend the party he and Cristal are both invited to. Alan drinks alcohol at the party and decides to drive a friend’s ATV. But he almost dies in a road accident he causes. A couple loses their lives. But nobody witnesses the accident. Alan wants to report the accident to the police. But he is drunk and has been driving. Both against his parole conditions. He’ll go back to jail if he does. Alan is escaping the scene when he hears the lady mumbling. She’s taking her last breaths. She whispers the name Jimmy to Alan before she dies. Thinking the woman wants him to tell her son what happened, Alan heads to the couple’s house, sees Jimmy in an unusual situation, and finds out he is blind. Alan takes Jimmy to his own house. But he thinks Jimmy is acting strangely. Remorseful and apologetic, Alan tells Jimmy all that happened the earlier night and how his parents died. Alan is under constant attack by the demon until the paranormal team and the priest arrive at his house. But Alan had to stay out of the house. The female medium is performing an EVP session and the priest doing the initial exorcism prayers. Jimmy falls very ill suddenly. Alan takes Jimmy to the backyard and goes back inside the house to make his presence known. Alan calls the female medium’s name. But she hears Alan from the EVP device instead of Alan’s own voice. Alan realizes he also was killed during the accident he caused.
To answer a private call, officer Jones exits the room, when she suddenly remembers Jimmy’s words about the demon finding its next victim to do its criminal deeds. She has flashbacks & realizes Jimmy is the next killer possessed by the demon. But Jimmy has disappeared.
