Plot & Details

Masayuki Ochiai makes his screen debut with this bio-horror flick about killer mitochondria threatening to dominate humanity from within, based on Sena Hideaki's best-selling book. The film opens with a traffic accident that renders the scientist Toshiaki Nagashima's (Hiroshi Mikami) wife, Kiyomi (Riona Hazuki), brain dead on the day of their first wedding anniversary. Grief-stricken, he vows to make her live again and steals her liver from her corpse. While examining the disembodied organ, a sticky goo attacks his assistant, Sachiko (Tomoko Nakajima), and suddenly Sachiko turns into Toshiaki's dead wife. Later, the scientist realizes that his dead wife is in fact a dastardly organization of sentient mitochondria bent on making a new species that will wipe out humanity. Will mankind's cytoplastic foe prevail?
