Synopsis
An experimental government germ weapon, code name "Trixie", leaves its victims either dead or irreversibly insane. When the virus is accidentally unleashed in Evans City, Pennsylvania, the small community becomes a war zone of panicked military, desperate scientists, and friendly neighbors turned homicidal maniacs. A small group of citizens flees to the outskirts of town where they hide from gun-toting soldiers while battling their own depraved urges. However, even if they can escape the madness of the plague, it is unclear whether or not they will be able to survive the unstoppable violence ahead of them.
