In a small, isolated town, people are affected by a condition that leaves them in a coma unless they consume blood. Then a terminally ill man plans an act of vengeance: to set the dead against the living, so that the whole world might experience the misery the townspeople have endured for years.

Dr. David Leppington returns to the small, sleepy town that bears his family name in order to visit with his beloved Uncle George whom he hasn't seen in a couple of decades. He checks into the town's only hotel, run by the beautiful but bizarre Electra Charnwood, and meets up with Bernice and the sinister strongman Jack Black. Dear crazy-as-a-loon Uncle George tells David that he is heir to the Leppington legacy. David refuses to believe this whacky tale but soon learns that his uncle might be right when he, Electra, Jack, and Bernice find themselves thrown together to fight the bloodthirsty creatures lurking in the tunnels under the town...
