The Terror Within

Synopsis: It's the post-apocalypse, and the world has been changed by "the accident," a chemical warfare experiment gone awry. At an isolated subterranean complex, a group of people survives because they were able to get the antidote for the illness. They rescue a surface survivor from the gargoyles, who unfortunately had time to impregnate her, and when the "baby" is born and escapes into the ventilation ducts, they begin experiencing an attrition problem.

Exploration party calling mojave lab.

Sue, are you there?


Sue, we're at three sisters.

Sue, you there?

Michael, they're not answering.

Let me check it out.

Mojave lab, come in.

Sue, come in, please.

Mojave lab, this is

exploration party calling.

Sue, are you there?

Sue, come in, please.

Sue, come in.

Yes, Michael?

What's happening? Taking a little nap?

Everything's all right.

Status report, please.

Well, we bagged a rattlesnake.

Great, get another one,

and we can have a barbecue.

Remember it...

Tastes like chicken.

That's 'cause you forgot

what real chicken tastes like.

Michael, check this out.

We have birds over there.

Hey, we got buzzards circling

about a quarter mile away.

Whatever it is still might be edible.

We'll check it out and let you know.

Okay, just be careful.

Over and out.

Want some?

With as much cover-up

as you can put in there.

Mm, thanks.


What's Andre using

for coffee these days?

I'm not sure you want to know.

Cleaning compound?

It's about the right color.

And the right taste.

Have you and sue finished

the supply inventory?

Yes, we have.

I figured if we cut

calories to 900 a day,

Bake some game every once and a while,

We can stay here for

about another two months.

Hal, we got to start thinking seriously

About getting out of here.

The rocky Mountain lab's...

Is 1,800 Miles away.

We haven't had a clear

message from them in ten days.

Our job is to stay here.

Our job is to survive.

Sue, you're not gonna believe this.

What is it?

Jesus, gargoyles!

John! John!

Michael? John?

Michael, John, David here.

What's going on?

John, Michael, this is David.

What the hell is going on?

You two better get out

there on the double.

Right. I'll get butch.

Don't waste your time.

He's the best tracker we got.

He knows the outside better than anyone.

All right, keep him under control.

Just go out there and bring them back.

Don't go looking for any more trouble.

Is that understood?

Sir, yes, sir.


This government issue

sh*t is for the birds.

Thanks for your opinion.

Now fix it.

David here. Nothing outside.

Anything on the motion detectors?

No activity.

We're out of here.

I sure don't like sending sue out there.

Don't worry.

She's in good hands.

Yeah, but I wish he'd

learn to follow procedures.

You love it up here, don't you?

Man, I don't know how you do it.

This place gives me the creeps.

I just wish we were

on our way out of here,

Headed to the rocky Mountain lab.


That's easy for you to say.

You were trained for that kind of stuff.

I just wish John and Michael

would've listened to me.

I told them to take butch along.

If they had, we wouldn't be doing this.

How could it be gargoyles?

They've never come out this far before.


Maybe it was survivors.

Survivors would see any one

of us as just somebody to rob.

Wouldn't they?

I mean, I think...

I think it's your turn

to get the shine, Neil.

Good plan.

Here's looking at you, kid.


When there ain't no food,

It sure does help to have good shine.

You think they're gonna

find anything out there?

Yeah, they're gonna discover

they don't have to cut rations,

Not with two less mouths to feed.

Well, maybe it wasn't survivors.

I mean, John's last words

were "Jesus, gargoyles. "

Gargoyles, shmargoyles.

Just thank your lucky stars

you're the most essential person

Old hal's got here.

I wouldn't go out there to find

them if they tripled my pay,

Assuming there's anybody

left to sign paychecks.

That sucks.
