Soon, there are other killings, including one of Rick's surfing buddies, Rick,s adulterous step-mother Vicky and Rick's crippled friend Mark. However, during the attack on Mark, the monster is cornered and after a struggle its mask is ripped off and the monster is revealed to be Otto, who was committing the murders as a twisted way of trying to make Rick give up his friends and to get back at Vicky for her affairs.
