This movie is about people who become dangerous maniacs when they drink from the local water supply. They are infected by a virus or pathogen in the water, but they do not eat any of their victims and (presumably) they can't infect anyone themselves. They can be killed in the same way as a normal, uninfected human being, and they are still living.
