A true homage to the creature feature genre!. The once luxurious Mountainview Spa Hotel in the heart of California’s Coachella valley lies decaying, abandoned and heavily boarded up. Its secret; it is the site of a radioactive, "dirty" bomb explosion five years’ previous. Zoology Professor Jane Lucas has a lifelong phobia of Scolopendra gigantea, the Giant Centipede, despite being the world’s leading authority on it. Following the savage deaths of two young lovers who broke into the hotel for its natural underground spa, and the discovery of centipede remains almost three times its natural size, the professor teams up with four of her students to investigate.
But their expedition becomes a fight for survival when they are trapped in the hotel with a gang of violent thugs - including the boyfriend of one of the female students with whom the professor has been having an illicit affair.
They soon discover a voracious swarm of the oversized centipedes that has spawned within the hotel, but are horrified to learn that another creature even more terrifying hunts in the Mountainview’s deserted hallways - a centipede of seemingly impossibly monstrous proportions; and it is ravenous and desperate to feed.
