After killing four persons in his home with a shotgun, Dee Travis claims that he had accidentally ingested an experimental biotoxin that the company Blackthorn where he worked was researching.

Meanwhile the CDC Agent Samantha Beckett comes to the prison to interview Travis and is received by Warden Mahler.

Samantha calls the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the responsible advises the warden that the prison is in quarantine. Written by

Should have been consigned to a Sci-Fi Channel Original
Well, this wasn't an abomination, but it was far from good. I didn't rent this with pre-conceptions of a Romero-esquire entry into the genre. While it did keep me watching throughout its entirety, it brought absolutely nothing interesting, though provoking, or even all too much entertaining to the table. No characters were interesting or endearing whatsoever. Even as a B-Movie, it fails. The only thing wresting it from a Sci-Fi channel original was the gore and violence. When the final credits roll, you wont feel moved at all, just the need to go eject the disc from the player. Sure, I've seen worse, but that's just about the best I can say from this low budget amateurish piece. Sure there are worse entries out there, but this is rubbing elbows with them.
