On a mission in Cambodia, a special-ops soldier becomes infected by a scarab beetle transforming him and his squad into raw flesh-craving zombies with superhuman strength. Fortunately, he is able to remove the beetle before it reached his heart, leaving him half-human with his humanity and rationale intact and half-zombie, with superhuman powers and cravings for raw flesh. Realizing the infectious condition, he quickly dispatches members of his squad and evades capture with the surprising aid of an unlikely sidekick, an Army cook. Together with the help of an enterprising waitress, they must stop the doctor whose evil, self-serving research to prolong life created the problem.
