This film is rated R for violence, terror and language. With an increase in roach population the spread of disease carried by the insects are killing a number of the city's children. Susan Tyler an entomologist uses genetic engineering to create a new breed of roaches called the Judas breed. This new breed of large roach spreads an enzyme that speeds up the metabolism of the diseased roaches killing the population of deadly insects.

Although these new insects have been bred to die after a short time, a mutation in the genetic engineered Judas insects cause them to grow and be able to take on the appearance of their intended food source. Unfortunately their new prey are the human population that created them. These insects are able to mimic the height and look of humans allowing them to blend in unseen with the population.

When people begin to go missing in the tunnels and subways under the city, it is discovered by scientist that the once thought dead insects are still alive and thriving in the darkness. Susan with the help of fellow scientist Peter and a subway police official follow the insects into the subway tunnels where a large population has been breeding.

Running for their lives, Peter uses himself as bate so that the others in the tunnel can escape. Here he stumbles on a boiler room and decides to blow up the nest to keep the insects from spreading from the tunnels out into the world. The male Judas insect survives the explosion but is later killed by a train while chasing Susan. Peter manages to survive the explosions in the tunnel by entering a pool of water and the show ends when Peter and Susan are reunited in the outside of the subway.
