The brutal murder of a woman in a honeymoon suite repeats the pattern of a previous murder case, and Jack suspects that the common element may be a hideous Cupid statue that Uncle Lewis sold to another man four years ago – and that man, too, was convicted of murdering a woman after seducing her with the aid of a Cupid statue. Ryan and Mickey discover that the statue was taken by a member of a local college fraternity, and they try to track it down, finding that it’s changed hands again. The Cupid is now in the possession of a disturbed young man who is too socially awkward to form normal relationships, and becomes obsessed with women he meets on campus. Ryan and Mickey get themselves invited to the fraternity’s next party to recover the statue before another woman is killed.

He and guest star Carolyn Dunn both made several more appearances in Friday The 13th (as different characters).
