In 1989, a breakthrough in advanced parasitic research on Cuttyhunk Island, gave scientists a jump in human evolution. Initial tests proved promising as subjects were experiencing heightened physical and mental strength and awareness. But, something in the experiment went horribly wrong and the island mysteriously lost three quarters of its population. Jamie Akerman fled the outbreak, which took her mothers life, twenty years ago. She now returns with her boyfriend and step brother, to sell the family property. There, they uncover the key to Jamie's disturbing past, and the horrifying secrets long suppressed by the town leader, Larkin. Now, a new strain of parasite has emerged, and threatens the island once again. Jamie struggles to survive and escape the obsessive pursuit of the local islanders who know that she has inherited more than she could ever have imagined.

Box Office Details
Ah, coming to touch greatness again?
No. I came to see the man who spoke of greatness but never understood what it meant.
That hurts my feelings.
I love horror films. Have since I was a kid. I especially like The
Thing, The Fly, the 70's version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and
films of that kind. For me, these are the "real" horror films – before
torture porn was an industry.
This film is in the genre of the films I mentioned above. It's a low
budget version of those films, but an interesting and compelling story
with real rich characters. The dialogue is well written, the
cinematography is terrific at parts, the acting is well played, the
narrative isn't in a hurry – but doesn't drag, and overall the ending
is fantastic! I felt that this team and this director were
inexperienced, but filled with talent, original ideas, and vision. Keep
watching until after the credits or you're missing something!
See this film, you just might like it!
