Distraught, Elizabeth tries to leave the project, but the project's financier (film vet Ed Lauter) orders Marcus to hold the research team captive until their research is complete. When one of the project's security guards (Scott Leet, Freeway Killer) is murdered and then re-animated, the team must contend with a man who at first is like a child, but quickly becomes something much, much more...
