Description and PreviewEditA mysterious albino (Brion James, Steel Dawn) and his goon squad arrive at a small southwestern town and infect the water supply with a virus that turns its victims into green blooded homicidal maniacs who will use anything-cars, guns, knives, fists-to attack everyone around them. At the same time Ken Griffiths (Wings Hauser, Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life is Calling), is a yuppie music lawyer is traveling with his wife Cheri (Kimberly Beck, Massacre at Central High) in their Winnebago. They pick up a hitchhiker with a past named Reilly (Bo Hopkins, White Lightning) and stop for breakfast at the local diner. One crazed redneck later, they find themselves helping Sheriff Hanks (George Kennedy, The Concorde) deal with the increasingly violent residents of the town.
