Synopsis: Our hero, Cooper, awakes to find himself nauseous, weak and covered in webbing, hanging from the ceiling of an office where, just minutes ago, he started his new job. As he struggles out of his slimy prison he comes face to face with his opponent - a grotesque, powerful and very angry bug. All 3 ft of it. And so begins a hideous, nail-biting, comedic, all-action adventure to find a safe haven while constantly outwitting an infestation of monstrous proportions. As Cooper embarks on his journey, he befriends a ragtag group of survivors including Sara, a feisty determined female. Will they make it to safety before they are picked off one by one? And what other surprises are in store for our group of unlikely heroes?

I knew it.

Late again, aren't you?

Dad? No, I'm in the elevator.

I might lose you.

- Why'd your number come up "private"?

- Because I blocked it.

I get you a job, which wasn't easy

with that gaping hole in your resume...

There are no hole...

I was working in Mexico, Dad.

Bartending doesn't count

in the real world.

- It's my good name you're smearing.

- Nothing's been smeared.

I'm just glad your poor mother

isn't alive to hear this.

It's been a month. You're not allowed

to use her in our petty arguments.

Dad, can you hear me? Hello?

Jesus Christ!

- Nice of you to join us.

- Oh, yeah.

I think I just met

my future wife, actually.

Yeah, right.

- Hey, Tom.

- Yeah?

That doesn't count.

- Yeah, clinically tested.

- Maureen would like to see you.

- We accept all major credit cards.

- You're not fooling anyone.

- Maureen's been looking for you.

- Did she say why?

No, but I assume

the goodwill train has derailed.

- Yo, Ed.

- What?

- Got ya, I got ya

- This little game?

- Dumb.

- You're right.

Oh, wait, seriously, about yesterday.

- Boss needs these.

- Alright.


Hey, Cooper.

Damn. Another point.

- Just give me five more minutes.

- Maureen, I'm filing. I'm busy.

- We'll talk on Monday.

- Come in.

- I'll be right down, sweetie.

- I'll be waiting.

Sit down.

Quality control emailed me this.

I want

the money-back guarantee.

- Again, I'm not authorised to...

- Are you being smart with me?

No. If I were, I'd simply make

fun of you for buying herbal Viagra.

- Let me speak to your manager.

- Sure. Please hold.

- This is his manager. How can I help?

- That's still you!

- I think I should quit.

- I'm about to fire you.

- I'll still give you two weeks.

- Thanks, but I don't want 'em.

I have an appointment to get to.

You know, I stuck my neck out

because I knew it was a difficult time

for you and your dad.

To repay me, you show up late,

turn away callers,

get everyone playing games

on the floor...



Maureen, it's Cooper.

Hey, Maureen.

Hey. Hi.

- Hello?

- What?

Hi. Hey, everything's...

Everything's gonna be...

It's gonna be OK.

You know,

my watch says it's the 26th,

so I think that means

we've been out since Friday.

- Hey, Ed. Wake up, big guy.

- I don't remember any break-in.

What do these people want?

I got in a fight with a giant, er...

a giant bug.

Yeah. About yea big.

About three feet long.

Oh, jeez.

Yeah, that's... that's normal.

Get that out of there.

- What's happening?

- Where... are we?

In the office.

Er, what's the last thing you remember?


Morning meeting. Er...

Conference call with...

Oh, my God. Sara.

I have a daughter.

I know. I'm really worried

about my family, too.

She's outside in a car.

She was picking me up.

Hey, wait! Maureen,

there could be more things out there!

More what?


Oh, God!

- Oh... Oh, no!

- Maureen, Maureen, Maureen.

Stop, stop, stop. It doesn't feel good

out here. We should go back inside.

- Sara!

- Is that... That's your daughter?

- Yes.

- In that car? OK, alright.

I'll go get her and then

we'll all go back inside together, OK?

I'll be right back.

I'll be right back, OK?

Excuse me.

Hello? Hello?

Hi. Lady.

Hey, come on. We gotta get up.

Hey. Come on.

Come on. OK.

Come here. OK, come here.

We gotta go right now, OK?

Can you walk?

- Oh, my baby!

- No, Maureen. Maureen.

Alright, we gotta get you out of here.

Rip these off. Get 'em off.

- Stop it.

- I'm trying to help you.

- Let me go.

- What have they done to her?


- Mom!

- Come on.

We gotta get out of here right now.
