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

In the convenient store Riley's nose bleeds down to his mouth and onto his teeth then it cuts to him with the blood only on his lip. See more »
Just be glad you don't have what Samantha had got.
Why, what'd she have?
Well, you know, they're not really telling me much but my buddy over at the coroner's office said it's some kind of necrotic STD - it's some really gnarly shit.
Yeah... well you didn't fuck her did you?
Neh... What? No.

Having thoroughly enjoyed the first installment, I wasn't sure that a sequel could really add much to the general plot line. I'm happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the impressive acting, well rounded characters and introduction of a whole back-story to the original film. This movie works well as both a sequel and a stand alone feature, so you don't have to have seen the first film to enjoy this one. Although lacking the shocking impact of the first, this film is an explanation of the protagonist and their motives, as well as exploring what people have 'Contracted' in more detail and depth. A great new spin on the usual offerings within this genre and well worth an evenings viewing.
