    • Synopsis
    • He's a Walking Crime Scene.

      Brilliant scientist SAM PRATT is obsessed with matters of life and death - literally.
      After years of work, he and his assistants (patient girlfriend All COLE and streetwise
      LUIS SALVO) have created a serum that will reanimate dead tissue.
      But the secret of life is as deadly as it is valuable. When Luis offers the serum tomaster criminal MIKLOS ZEITSEV as payment for his gambling debts, Zeitsev takes
      the serum and all the research data ~ and when Sam tries to protect his life's work,
      Zeitsev's hulking enforcer MS. BOGENELLI murders him.
      Ali and a repentant Luis are able to create more serum, but they must use the crime
      scene tape from the murder site to stop the serum from leaking out. Sam is
      reanimated as THE SHAMBLER, a yellow-and-black mummy with superhuman
      strength. Sam bludgeons his way through the criminal underworld trying to find Zeitsev, while
      Zeitsev makes a deal with Chinese arms merchants to obtain a weapon that will stop
      the unstoppable Shambler. But Sam realizes his intellect is degrading - if he doesn't
      retrieve the stolen research soon, he will become a mindless killing machine.
      Ali makes a desperate deal with Zeitsev - she will teach him how to use the serum in
      exchange for the return of the research data that will save Sam's mind. This sets up
      a high-energy climax as Zeitsev and his criminal network battle this new kind of
      superhero - the Shambler
