Later that afternoon, Eric finds his girlfriend Liz (Laura Carney) having sex with his younger brother, Sonny (Frank John Hughes), in a hotel room. To punish him, Eric appoints Sonny and fellow pledge Ralph (Jeffrey Miller) to photograph Malius as their initiation. Sonny and Ralph break into the asylum but when Ralph attempts to take a photo, Malius attacks and kills him. Sonny escapes on his motorcycle while Malius murders a nurse and escapes…
