Storyline

The Russian government has collapsed. Amidst the chaos, riots, and struggle for power, a terrible weapon has leaked out. Virulent microflage, a deadly germ of the cold war has begun to spread across Eastern Europe, killing massive numbers of people. Now, in a quarantine camp set up for immigrants in 2017 Boston, one vicious murderer has the disease. Within two hours he will become violently contagious, and it is up to a team of officers in a race against time to track him down and stop him... if he doesn't kill them first. Written by Eric Yang

[first lines]
Delon: No one saw it coming. We were all looking out for big things. A nuclear accident, another Chernobyl... As the Russian republic split apart, no one knew who was responsible for what. While they were trying to figure it out, something leaked, something small. It rolled through eastern Europe moving west like a giant wave of death. They called it virulent microphage.

one of cult
1 December 2001 | by xeneize007See all my reviews

the gore never stops, it's very violent and claustrophobic. if you show me someone who says he wasn't scared,then i'll show you a liar. O.K., it's not the "best movie ever" but it's by far the best horror film i've seen, even though it's an under, low budget, b-class flick it deserves a place amongst the most scary ones. Although the plot is quite silly, and the agents in the bio suits are a clever as backsreet boy after listening to cristina aguilera's cd. Still, it's very scary and it's a movie i'd watch twice... if i ever catch it on TV.
