This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang but a scream.

High above the Arctic Circle, a team of archeologists discovers a burial site dating to the last ice age. None of them notice the warning carved into the entrance or realize that the tomb has been deliberately sealed from the outside until they’ve inadvertently released a virus that turns ordinary people into violent monsters.

The deadly contagion spreads like wildfire, forcing the military to quarantine entire cities in the hope of slowing the spread and buying scientists enough time to develop a cure. Desperate to escape before it’s too late, the immune must brave streets swarming with the infected and prepare themselves for the fight of their lives.

For there was something even more terrifying than a virus trapped inside that tomb...something ancient...something unspeakably evil, and it’s up to a ragtag group of survivors to band together and stand against it.

If they can survive long enough to do so.
