In this British sci-fi thriller a group of drug smugglers race their yacht across Hong Kong harbor as they attempt to escape triad gangs after a botched drug deal. They end up docking at a seemingly abandoned off-shore oil rig and it isn't long before they discover that they would have been better off in the triad's hands as the rig is really a research lab where a hungry, constantly morphing genetic experiment has eaten all of the scientists. The newly arrived thieves offer it a veritable smorgasboard, provided they don't get the creature first.
