On board is a secret expedition investigating an alleged fatal virus that is decimating the local population. Very soon, strange events begin to occur. As soon as the scientific expedition begins to cover the other side of the island, it discovers to its horror that the area is inhabited by enormous mutant spiders of an extraterrestrial origin with a voracious killer instinct.
