  • Dr. Rachel Harris (Dina Meyer) was working on a military experiment separating minds from bodies when she and her co-workers were forced to pull the plug and kill their subjects. Four years later, a schoolteacher goes on a murderous rampage and kills an ER doctor - one of Rachel's co-workers from her military-experiment days. In the sanitarium where Rachel and another former military co-worker, Kate (Barbara Tyson), now work, there's a power outage and previously harmless patients suddenly take on murderous tendencies. Rachel recognizes the trademarks of the one experiment victim she had worried about at the time - the one whose consciousness was not connected with his body at the time of death. But as the violence within the hospital walls escalates, she is unable to convince Kate or her boyfriend David (Colin Ferguson) that the events have any connection with her past. Only hospital orderly Carl (Ronald Selmour) recognizes what he calls 'the Kalfu' - the dark spirit running amok within the sanitarium's walls. As the spirit jumps from person to person and the body count rises, even Rachel can't imagine what price it will finally exact for the cost of meddling with human souls.

  • An alien plant species takes the form of a seductive woman, challenging a young couple's ideas of commitment and monogamy. When a meteor enters Earth's atmosphere, a single piece survives and buries itself in the rich soil of a community garden. Within hours, the piece has grown into a lovely but deadly plant. It takes the life of the garden's owner and transforms itself into a beautiful and equally deadly woman named Violet (Jud Taylor), with a scent few men are able to resist. Down the hall, newly engaged Chris (Jeremy London) and Mia (Rebecca Reichert) are struggling with pre-marriage jitters and the overwhelming concept of lifelong monogamy. Not helping matters is Mia's co-worker at the forensics lab, Tom (Ken Tremblett), who wants to be more than just a professional colleague. When Chris runs into the seductive Violet he feels vulnerable, but steels himself to resist her. Ultimately, despite his commitment to Mia, Chris finds his flesh is weak next to her primal pull. Other men, unable to resist her, pay with their lives. Violet is a deadly force of nature with an alien agenda based on the survival of her plant world rather than human life.

  • Pioneers in biogenetic research, Nora Griffiths (Sherilyn Fenn) and her husband Zach (Peter Outerbridge) have successfully created the world's first perfectly cloned organs. But Nora wants to take the ultimate step and also replicate the synaptic array of the human brain. This would conceivably allow the full cloning of a human, an illegal procedure veamently opposed by their business partner Peter Chandler (Garwin Sanford). She convinces Zach to apply her discovery and download her own thought and brain patterns, but when the process is complete, she is left in a deep coma. One year later, with no hope that his wife will ever regain conciousness, Zach is driven by despair to make a clone of Nora using the technology he has since perfected. The clandestine procedure is a complete success. Nora's mind and body seem to have been duplicated in every way and Nora II is born. With his wife back, everything in Zach's world is perfect once more, until the real thing wakes up...

  • The time portal is disengaged, and Beckett (Michael Rooker) steps out of the machine only to discover that his visit to the past has not changed the present. Many millions of people are still dying of a mysterious plague and his mission, to kill the carrier and stop the epidemic before it ever gets started, has failed. With the very survival of the human race at stake, Beckett agrees to travel back into the past again, this time one week earlier than before, to remove the person scientists now believe to be Patient Zero, a woman named Amy Barrett (Tanya Allan). But a twist of fate will alter Beckett's resolve. Instead of eliminating Amy to arrest the plague, he believes he knows a way to save the humanity of the future without harming Amy in the present. Can the fate of mankind hinge on a single act? Or are we helpless to change our destiny?
