Storyline

While working in a greenhouse, a man receives an insect bite after touching an exotic plant. Immediately, he falls ill and is taken to an emergency room where the doctors diagnose him as suffering from an unknown bacteria, and a strange parasite which emerges from his mouth as a large slimy wormlike creature. Soon, there are more cases of bacterial infection, but the more immediate problem for the hospital is the wormlike creature which after accidental exposure to a genetic growth stimulant grows to monstrous proportions and starts a reign of terror and bloodshed in the hospitals abandoned wing. Written by Patrick D. Rockwell <prockwell@thegrid.net>

A Puzzling Gem
21 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie so many times that I am on my second VHS copy. As I am writing this I am burning it onto DVD, because I'm not sure it's even available in that format. Well...It should be! If you like campy horror/sci-fi movies then you'll love this puzzling gem. And for the love of Pete, it's got Steve Railsback(X-Files, Lifeforce, Helter Skelter, Devils Rejects)!!! This is a movie about a quarantined hospital under attack from a ravaging bacterial disease outbreak, and worse. No, not a blue monkey. Worse.

OK, so I had to finish the movie and stop writing for a few minutes. This movie is great for a lot of reasons that come up around midnight. Don't expect to be scared, though there is some great bloody gore. If you like The Terror Within, or Dead Pit or stuff like that, you'll love it. If you think any movie with an alien since the release of Alien is a rip-off of Alien, then go rent Alien.
