In an ultra secret laboratory for the developing of biological weapons, covered as "Biotek", a research center for agriculture, a serious accident occurs, spreading a sinister bacteria in the laboratory. The security guard of the complex, closes and seals the building, with all the personnel inside, making very difficult the struggle for survival, not to mention the actions that the relatives of the enclosed people are thinking to do.Written by

The name of the agricultural factory is 'BioTek Agronomics". Many people assume it's misspelled when in fact it was misspelled on purpose. Using "BioTek" rather than "Biotech" avoided issues with real corporations that used the proper spelling, and "agronomics" is a play at the words "agricultural" and "economics" put together.

Unlike many horror movies where you need to check your credulity at the door, what you see in this film is actually believable. The idea of military scientists finding a catalyst which induces rage in the human mind, then mating it with a virus as a delivery device, is a very scary idea! Imagine you could catch homicidal mania as easily as you could catch the flu.
The acting in this movie is good if somewhat uneven. Joanie (played wonderfully by Kathleen Quinlan) is a very intense character. Sam Waterston is good as her lover and the local sheriff.
The film is not slick, but has some intense moments that many "slicker" films can only dream of achieving. Overall a very suspenseful film.
