Get ready for skin-crawling sci-fi horror film, Growth. In a similar vein to Slither, The Faculty and Splinter, this creepy film features a host of stunning slithery special effects.
In 1989, on a quiet vacation island, a groundbreaking experiment is underway. Scientists, working with the island population, have successfully unlocked the gateway to advancing human evolution. Using a parasite, they have been able to amplify the vision, hearing, speed, strength and intellect of the human subject, promising to usher in a new age for mankind. Initial tests proved promising, but, something in the experiment went horribly wrong and the island mysteriously lost three quarters of its population.
Jamie Akerman fled the outbreak, which took her mother's life. She now returns with her boyfriend, step brother and best friend, to sell the family property. There, they uncover the key to Jamie's disturbing past, and the horrifying secrets long suppressed by the town leader.
Now, a new strain of parasite has emerged, and threatens the island once again. Jamie struggles to survive and escape the obsessive pursuit of the local islanders who suspect that she has inherited more than she could ever have imagined....
Nature just got a little more selective
