Plucky evolutionary biologist Dr. Margo Green (Penelope Ann Miller) joins forces with tough Chicago cop Lt. Vincent D'Agosta (Tom Sizemore) to unravel the mystery behind the horribly mangled corpses that keep popping up around her museum during an opening night gala. When they investigate further they find that there were mysterious deaths on the cargo ship that brought it across the ocean. Sure enough, there's a monster to blame, sprung from a strange artifact of South American origin. Based on the bestseller by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Also starring Linda Hunt and James Whitmore. Directed by Peter Hyams (THE PRESIDIO, 2010.)
