About the film:

Opening night film at FrightFest 2022.

Royal Air Force pilot Lt. Kate Sinclair is on her final flight mission when her jet is shot down over one of the most dangerous rebel strongholds of Afghanistan. She finds refuge in an abandoned underground bunker where deadly man-made creatures — half-human, half-alien and hungry for human flesh — are awakened. Sinclair barely escapes and unknowingly leads the creatures known as Ravagers back to a U.S. army base.

“the perfect FrightFest opening film… a fun, fast, and action-packed adventure”

—David Gelmini for Dread Central
