Storyline

An ambitious lab assistant carries out a forbidden experiment and accidentally creates a deadly bacteria which kills her and rapidly engulfs the city. The authorities order a curtain of secrecy and impose quarantine on all known contacts whilst embarking on a desperate search for a cure. Meanwhile one of the people in quarantine escapes and becomes the unwitting carrier of the disease. She spreads the plague wherever she goes and becomes a fugitive on the run eluding the police through subways and alleyways. In a gripping gripping built up of events, the full horror of the plague becomes public and the onslaught has to be stopped before all human life on Earth is destroyed. Written by Anonymous

Classic 70's Trashy Horror Movie
18 April 2002 | by retrogamesSee all my reviews

First off this movie won't please everybody, only fans of this sort of stuff. If you like Cheesy 70's Flicks then you can do a lot worse than this. From the Director who brought you the Films BLOODY BIRTHDAY and THE BRAIN. An interesting fact about this movie is that one of the stars (Kate Reid) also starred in the classic Andromena Strain Sci Fi Flick which has a similar plot to this (Killer Virus sort of thing).
