Code Red

Over seventy years later, the horrific biochemical weapon resurfaces in modern day Bulgaria, turning the local inhabitants into frenzied mutants and causing the dead to rise from the grave. Amidst the chaos, US Special Forces Captain John McGahey (Paul Logan) and NATO Doctor Ana Bennett (Manal El-Feitury) must escape the infected zone before the Code Red alert is raised and everything is destroyed. Now it's survival at all costs...

The Second World War

was in its decisive phase.

The Battle of Stalingrad

was crucial.

The Germans had barricaded

themselves in

all over the city.

If they had taken Stalingrad,

they would have taken control

the Russian oil fields,

and Stalin would have

lost his advantage.

So he put his sick genius mind

into action

into winning the battle

at all costs.

Over 2 million people died

during that battle.

We have no account as to how

this man Hans survived.

This is his diary.

I got it from a friend of mine

I grew up with in Scotland,

who's now with MI6.

The last entry is August 1944.

Couple of days later,

he allegedly killed himself

in a German psych ward.

- How is your German?

- Serviceable.

Okay, so why do we give a shit

about some lunatic's journal?

This is not some search

for the boogeyman, soldier.

This is about

biochemical genocide.


[heavy breathing]



Stalin was always

one step ahead of Hitler,

trying to create

a race of super warriors.

Fortunately his experiments

were all destroyed

before the end of the war.

Some high-ranking officials

think the Russians

stumbled upon something

much more sinister.

- The gas in the story?

- Yes.

You know,

I learned a lot about the Battle

of Stalingrad in training,

when they burned that city

halfway down to the ground.

Never heard anything about

poisonous gas though.

That's because forces

napalmed the south side.

Burnt it all.

It was the only way

to control the infection.



[heavy breathing]

That's funny, sir. Is that

the new official ghost story

to scare the recruits?

I wish.

Very few people

knew about the gas.

They destroyed

all records of it.

Nobody wanted to admit

any atrocities occurred.

So there's no evidence of this.


You're holding the evidence.

That's all we ever got.

Why are you telling me

about this big secret now?

The last 24 hours,

reports come out of Bulgaria

reporting an incident

that matches

what's written about

in that diary.

There's a base.

On the base,

there's a munitions warehouse.

This warehouse goes

8 floors deep

and holds 80 years' worth

of weapons.

With the Russians

and Bulgarians alliance

after the Second World War,

we think there's a good chance

that that gas

is somewhere inside

that warehouse.

So have one of our contacts

check it out.


We don't think the Bulgarians

have any idea

what they are sitting on.

We need to find it,

secure it at any cost.

So how are you getting me in?

There have been a string

of arms thefts

at several military bases

throughout Eastern Europe.

Your cover will be as

Captain John McGahey,

arsenal inspector.

You'll be investigating

a robbery in the warehouse

at the same base.

Your job is to get into

this warehouse

and report back

anything you find.

Your contact will be

military doctor Ana Bennett.

Anything with this insignia,

you report back to me

and only me.

Captain John McGahey.

- At ease, sir.

- Welcome to Bulgaria, sir.

Pvt. Harold Miller at your

service. Let me take your bag.

How long is the drive?

- It's a couple hours, sir.

- Perfect.

- Wake me up when we get close.

- Yes, sir.

Most of the locals here

work for the base.

It's the biggest employer.

Yeah, looks like

they're thriving.

Don't worry, private.

We were all young once.
