A top secret military research laboratory nicknamed 'The Hive' is compromised when a deadly virus is released into the ventilation system. A computer called the Red Queen, which controls The Hive, shuts down the base - preventing escape by the workers inside - and starts cleansing the interior. A group of soldiers are sent in to shut down the Red Queen but in the process they release the inhabitants, turned into zombies by the virus.
