Plot Summary

There are strange things afoot at a hospital – zombies are turning up with spikes in their heads which, when removed, causes the bodies to melt. Elsewhere, patients are vomiting up worms, spontaneously combusting, bursting into flames and giving birth to demon babies. It turns out that a male witch is behind the nastiness and someone must be found to stop him.
