The Demon – 1979 – South Africa

A psychotic killer with a mask (sometimes) and clawed gloves kills people by wrapping plastic bags around their heads. He stalks two beautiful young school teachers who like meditating and going out with guys. On the killer’s trail is a psychic detective. The detective doesn’t do anything and is arbitrarily killed early in the film—and not even by the killer. In the end, the killer chases one of the teachers around a house. The teacher gets naked for this part. She eventually defeats the killer with a Home Alone-style trap. She puts slippery soap on the floor, sprays her attacker with scalding water, and stabs him in the throat.
