A 200-year-old virus emerges again.
29 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had very low expectations for this film. After all, it was released in 2007 and it is already free on Hulu. How good can it be? Getting ready to open Alcatraz to tourists, they find a walled-in area and a skeleton, While investigating, Ranger Vince (William Van Noland) cuts his finger on the teeth. They bring in some grad students to investigate the body, and Vince is slowly getting sicker. Soon the murders begin.

We manage to get an very quick eyeful of Florida native and Survivor participant Jessie Camacho, but it is a body double unfortunately. That's it for the thrills; the rest is chills.

A little science and a little superstition, it was interesting to a point, but largely unfulfilling.
