Summary: A killer named the Breather terrorizes students at a high school. Whenever the killer finds students having sex, he kills them. Murder weapons? Eggplant, paper clips, and, of course, horse-head bookends. He likes to breathe heavily, and he likes to make prank calls while talking through a rubber chicken. He also hates sugarless gum. Who doesn't?
