Just when you thought it was safe to go back into... your own mind?! This totally unique, poignant and suprisingly moving shoal of animal attack film, supernatural thriller and survivors guilt drama chums the waters with an equal dose of charm and scares.
It's been a year since Liz lost her sister and boyfriend in a vicious shark attack. Now she's trying to get her life in order and move on, but the past just won't let her go. By night she is plagued by nightmares of being stalked in the dark sea by a ravenous finned predator, and increasingly by day hallucinations of visits from her sister and boyfriend, both who were killed in the attack. Aided by her supportive girlfriend, will Liz be able to overcome her struggles, or is the madness she fears far more real and supernaturally manifesting...

Fear takes roost in this raucous throwback to the practical creature feature horrors we all grew up with. Following a Nuclear power plant meltdown, a nearby village became radiated and subsequently abandoned for more than a decade. The year is now 1984, and the public have been permitted to return. A small group come back to their long lost family home only to find an iradiated monster bat living in their attic. The family now must survive the night to escape at dawn, but the monster has other plans and they soon begin to find themselves infected with a deadly plague that may just kill them if the monster doesnt first.
This is one bat you don't want to get stuck in your hair!
