Advertisement

Starring Brian Steele, Gary A. Hecker, Dick Warlock, Aaron Lustig, Robert Lesser

Directed by Peter Hyams

Synopsis: A homicide detective and an anthropologist try to destroy a South American lizard-like god, who's on a people eating rampage in a Chicago museum.

Tagline: There are secrets better left unknown, and treasures better left undiscovered. In 1995, a scientific expedition found something that turns myths into nightmares…something that gives shape to fear, and form to evil…something as powerful as it is deadly. They should never have sought it. They should never have touched it. And then, they did the unthinkable…THEY BROUGHT IT BACK.

Synopsis: A researcher at Chicago's Natural History Museum returns from South America with some crates containing his findings. When the crates arrive at the museum without the owner there appears to be very little inside. However, police discover gruesome murders on the cargo ship that brought the crates to the US and then another murder in the museum itself. Investigating the murders is Lt. Vincent D'Agosta who enlists the help of Dr. Margo Green at the museum - she has taken an interest in the contents of her colleague's crates. Unknown to both there is a large creature roaming the museum which is gearing itself up for a benefit reception which the city's mayor is to attend.
