She is on prescribed medication as she still has frightening nightmares regarding Benjamin Willis her most recurring one being Ben Willis hiding beneath her bed whilest Ray is occupied doing something (sometimes commonly brushing his teeth in the bedroom suite bathroom. The Beginning scene shows Julie with Ray in their Southport home watching the horror movie trailers of two films involving the Fisherman Killer to which both in the trailers include mentions of her. The following day shows Julie wake up and have a montage like scene of her getting up to go to work as the art designer of the Southport Croaker Queen Production Company.Ray is seen throughout the day tending to household chores mowing the lawn, clipping the backyard hedges and washing the clothing.
The beginning ends with Julie at night from work as she is packing up calling Ray telling him she's on her way home and she's thinking of picking upThe Closet Hook and Master the Hook. As she heads she is walked in by her boss who tells her she still needs to head over to Lexington Avenue and pick up the company's new 4th of July night logo from Susan. Julie complains and sighs at this stating it is the fourth of July and she would like to be able to spend it with her husband. She does so anyway and heads to the Southport Artist/Main Architect Susan to collect. As she comes to Susan's house Ray is seen waiting on Julie with popcorn and a blanket with the writing "Babymaker" etched on it which she sets on the lounge room couch. He then remembers from there to take out the trash and picks up three garbage bags and escorts them outside. Julie then arrives at Susan's house and sees lots of garbage upon the floor. Susan answers the door before Julie puts out her finger to ring the doorbell and upon this Ray is seen coming to the rubbish cans outside as him and Julie's nice old man neighbour is seen outside security locking many objects. As they go to engage in conversation Susan is then seen at her front door beginning her conversation with Julie. Julie tells of her needing the company logo the one she faxed her about the week before the 4th. Susan brings her in and shows the logo. Julie is shocked and enraged by it as it is a fashionably dressed blonde girl on the ground being hovered over by a Fisherman with a hook to come down upon her. Julie leaves the house and then storms into her car which upon locking herself in begins to cry. Between the crying Ray is shown talking to their friendly neighbour as he is to head inside. Julie from there heads to the Post Office anyway and asks if any mail has come in for her and Ray. The Clerk unlocks her slot and shows a letter just for her with simple black marker writing on the front. The letter on the inside reads simply "Last Summer." Julie panics and gasps as Ray is seen heading inside the house coming to the top story and noticing in their bedroom the window is open but failing to notice muddy footprints upon the floor. As the old man is then seen heading on inside his house and noticing something strange Julie begins yelling at the clerk demanding to know who sent this and wether it was simply a teenager making a joke. The Clerk states to not know. Julie from there paces back and forth and panicking and Ray is seen heading forwards towards the hallway balcony and the old man is seen in his doorway as the door shuts on him and locks him in. Julie pulls out her mobile phone and begins to ring Ray again. His phone is seen on the floor in the bedroom. Julie then straps out the phone and dials the police which causes the Clerk to panic and ask he does not give the Post Office as the location she is calling from. She gets hold of the Southport Police and gives way her and Ray's address claiming there is someone after them and they must come urgently. Julie thanks the Clerk and then runs off outside to her car and drops the key in shock as she begins to start her car. She eventually makes it back to the house and finds the front door wide open. She calls out for Ray which alerts the old man neighbour locked in his house who runs forwards for the side door facing her and the house but drips as a closet door releases a fisherman slicker. Ray then stumbles to the balcony with multiple stab wounds in his back. Julie screams and before she can move forward Ray is knocked to the side by the hook and then stabbed multiple times to the chest and face. Julie then runs on him with a roscoe pistol she possesses and heads into the house. The fisherman moves across the upstairs and Julie fires at the staircase twice. She makes her way at a brisk pace aiming the gun ready. She backs through the hallway upon seeing it is clear and upon glancing into her and Ray's bedroom a lightning flash reveals written in blood on the wall "Happy 4th Of Julie." As she notices this the Fisherman runs out and the police are shown coming through all the streets closer. They even pass the happening 4th Of July Parade. The fisherman launches at Julie as she takes a shot at his shoulder and he stabs the hook into her chest. The two are then spiraled off the balcony to the ground and the old man from next door is seen tapping on the side door. Julie glancing over at him distracts her as the fisherman atop her stabs her in the arm with the hook. She places down her pistol and then nods her head at him as she closes her eyes letting two tears stream down her face. She is then stabbed multiple times. The police come to the opposite street and the fisherman heads over to the old man kicking down his side door and coming at him. The Fisherman swipes down at the old man but does not hit him simply makes him grab the hook to ensure he is not injured. The fisherman then leaves the hook in the old man's hands and heads out. The old man falls to the floor in shock and the police come to the house. They head on in the house and the sheriff Marhilik Eastman comes to Julie's body he glances over seeing the old man and sends over officers to him which arrest him.Julie is unable to hear Ray's final gasps and screams as following the argument she flickers on the t.v and puts the volume on full bore.
She ends up coming across the news report of her therapist's demise before a chair being pushed upstairs.
Julie calls out for Ray and doesn't receive a reply.
She runs for gun class cabinet and withdraws a flare gun which looks identical to the one she tried to withdraw from Ben Willis' boat tool box.
Julie rushes upstairs and stumbles upon Ray dying on the bedroom floor.As she holds him in his last minutes Ben Willis emerges and with much difficulty musters the words: "When You Leave A Man For Dead, Make Sure He's really Dead."
Julie then fires her flare gun at him which distracts him as she withdraws from her back jean pocket a shotgun.
She fires repeatedly but misses Ben Willis who soon lunges on her and with various slices gashes her across the chest and throat with his hook before she drops to the ground.
Julie however not quite musters to her feet and takes hold of Ben saying "Happy 4th of July Ben" the two then stumble out the bedroom window and hit the ground with high velocity.
Police are then seen swarming the Bronson residence and taking out the three bodies as a shocked Karla Wilson stands from afar looking in.
Ben Willis' corpse however upon reaching coroners in the local police department comes to life and exits his boyd bag revealing not to be dead.
Ben Willis whilest exiting the building overhears the conversation with Sheriff Davis about his dead nephew who died after apparently escaping from Ben Willis.
