After a scientist living in a posh apartment complex slaughters a teen girl and kills himself, investigators discover that the murderer had been carrying on experiments involving deadly parasites. Roger St. Luc (Paul Hampton), a doctor living in the building, and his aide Nurse Forsythe (Lynn Lowry) then realize that the parasites are on the loose attacking fellow tenants.
