Seeking a new laboratory to pursue his controversial genetic research, Dr Geoff Burton takes up a position at the world-renowned Institute for Molecular Cell Biology & Genetics in wintry Dresden, Germany. His contribution to their most top-secret project - a human regeneration gene - has the potential to make something miraculous out of a personal tragedy that has haunted him for years. But when he uncovers a conspiracy amongst his colleagues, he finds instead something quite different: a terrifying new virus, with potentially devastating consequences for humanity - and for Geoff, who is not only its first victim, but its unwitting source.Written by
You know, mosquitoes, bed bugs, fleas, ticks - they all carry disease, yes? But instead of spreading sickness, why not change the formula. Make them carry genetically modified viruses? Anti-genes to our own plan. Imagine using this in the Third World; in Africa. They're going to be bitten anyway. Why not let them catch the "malaria vaccine", instead?

An entertaining thriller that'll leave horror fans wanting more
This film feels a bit mismarketed, it obviously doesn't have horror as a genre, but you can't exactly blame anybody who thought that was what they were getting into with its presentation on Hulu.
In actuality, this is a dramatic suspense film with a doctor, played by Michael Ekuland, attempting to find the cure for the disease that killed his son. Now at a research center in Germany, he finds himself butting heads with a rival researcher who seems to be performing experiments behind the backs of his fellow colleagues.
It is a good film, though its ending feels a little lackluster in comparison to an explosive confrontation preceeding it. Some reviewers may find to boring, but i believe this is again due to their expectations this will be similar to something like Cronenberg's The Fly, it's not.
For what it's worth, it's an enjoyable thriller that you can easily switch on without fear of feeling really creeped out by the end.
