Bickering siblings Johnny and Barbra drive to a rural Pennsylvania cemetery to place a cross with flowers on their father's grave. Johnny teases his sister, who is afraid of cemeteries, taunting, “They're coming to get you, Barbra!” A pale-faced man lumbers toward the pair. The man suddenly grabs Barbra, and Johnny rushes to save her. While fighting the man, Johnny is visiously eaten by the man. Barbra then flees in Johnny's car, eventually crashing it. She abandons the car and runs into a nearby farmhouse to hide and soon discovers that others like the man are outside. In a panic and attempting to flee the house, Barbra is intercepted by Ben, who arrives in a pickup truck and attacks the mysterious figures with a tire iron.
The two are unaware that Harry and Helen Cooper, their daughter Karen, and a young couple Tom and Judy have been hiding in the cellar. Eventually, the dead find them and they are forced to fight them off.
