Scientist Paul Dean (Robert Glaudini) has created a parasite, which grows in one's body until it is big enough to get out and find another donor. Dean's research has caused him to have one in his own body that he is able to get out, but it gets loose and raises havoc throughout the countryside. As gory as it is bad. Demi Moore plays his friend in her second film.
