With their car damaged tehy walk to a local small town hoping to find somewhere to stay for the night. What they find instead is a small town whose inhabitants are suffering from a mysterious disease!
As the mystery progresses Mike vanishes leaving Josh, local teacher Holly Pierce (Jody Medford) and Sherrif Will Stewart (Bo Hopkins) to fight off the mutating inhabitants of the once quiet small town! It turns out that toxic waste has turned the entire town into toxic waste vampires who crave blood! Cary Guffey aka the kid from Close Encounters of the Third Kind also pops up as Billy during the adventure!
A sequel was written in the early 2000s but was never filmed. Bo Hopkins was attached to the project and was set to reprise his role as Sheriff Will Stewart. A part was also specially written for Ken Foree. We are left to wonder what it might have been!
