Only a few hours after an unfortunate one-night stand, Riley, a social worker, realises that just like Samantha, he too is infected with the necrotic STD, experiencing ominous angry symptoms of the abominable malady. Furthermore, as the highly contagious disease devours his feeble flesh, desperate Riley must try to locate the original patient zero throughout the city of Los Angeles with the intention to find a cure, while at the same time, a driven detective is after him. But in the meantime, the virus keeps spreading while the plague's original carrier is still on the loose. Written by Nick Riganas

Delivers What You'd Expect it To

Contracted: Phase II (2015)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Riley (Matt Mercer) finds himself growing violently sick from the virus he contacted so he sets out to find the man he believes is spreading it around.

CONTRACTED: PHASE II is a sequel that picks up where the original film left off but to me this here is more of a remake than anything else. I enjoyed the first film a great deal and this one here is basically just a copy of it, although it's not nearly as good. With that said, if you enjoy these body harming horror films then there's enough violence and gore here for you.

I think the biggest issue with this film is that it really doesn't offer us anything we didn't see in the first film. I'd also argue that we don't care for Riley like we did Sam in the first film. However, this type of film is made to make your skin crawl and there are several disgusting scenes here. As with the first there's a lot of gore, blood vomiting and creepy things being dug out of flesh. The violence and gore certainly matches the first film and it will keep fans into the picture.

The performances were all good and especially Marianna Palka and Anna Lore. Director John Forbes does a good job with the material and delivers a well-made and professional looking film. CONTRACTED: PHASE II isn't a masterpiece but it delivers what you'd expect it to.
