Once the body count reaches four, a group of town vigilantes decide to take matters into their own hands and hunt down the perpetrator. The end result is more townspeople meeting violent deaths. After Marty and his sister Jane's (Megan Fellows) parents go out of town, the siblings are left in the care of their alcoholic Uncle Red (Gary Busey). After going out alone to shoot fireworks, Marty barely escapes a confrontation with the werewolf. The run-in with Marty leaves the werewolf with an identity-revealing injury. Marty, Jane and Uncle Red find themselves embroiled in a cat and mouse game as they try to protect Marty from the werewolf's wrath.
