Kim (Kelly Rutherford) has just inherited a large home from a distant relative and moves into it with her husband, Edward (Chad Lowe).  Soon after their arrival the couple notices strange paranormal activity, such as flickering lights and drains filled with reddish goo. 


Edward discovers that the substance is actually mold seeping up from a hidden room in the basement, and that it is capable of numbing pain.  When he injects the substance into lab rats their cognition skills are increased, leading Edward to test the mold himself next.  The results are promising at first, butquickly turn disastrous.
