A college professor, Dr. Douglas Newton (Edwin Craig), develops an experimental drug named Tryptophan (not to be confused with real Tryptophan) that has the unfortunate side effect of turning his students into blood thirsty zombie-like creatures leading them to eventually explode. It's up to a couple of grad students Jenny Wayne (Timmi Cragg) and Joe Larsen (Matt Shevin), along with the local newspaper reporter Ray Elsworth (Ned Liebl) to uncover Dr. Newton's dark secret and thwart his diabolical plans before time runs out.

Steve Anderson of Film Threat rated the film 1/5 stars and stated that the film fails at both horror and comedy. Peter Dendle wrote that it is "a mind-numbing indie effort" with "inconsistent mutant creatures and awful special effects." A more positive review by Gavin Schmitt of Killer Reviews gave the film 3.5/5 stars and said "the overall story is really good" and singled out "the film`s seemingly endless supply of gorgeous women".
