Passengers on a train are trapped by mysteriously transformed creatures. As the situation deteriorates and survivors begin feeding the weak and injured to the monsters to stay alive, a duo of unlikely allies begin working together. Outwitting ruthless fellow survivors and battling past the vicious creatures, they make their way to the engine car, searching desperately for a solution to stop their runaway train that could crash at any moment.
Every car is the dining car
When riders on a passenger train mysteriously transform into vicious monsters, a small group of trapped survivors must find a way to stop the train before being killed; or killing each other.
