Injected with an experimental drug, the research chemist Ryan (Robert Simper) leaves a mysterious rural health farm and drives to the outer city suburb of Homesville. As Ryan's body starts to deteriorate and his driving becomes more erratic, a cruising police car starts to chase him. Charging towards a group of houses in Pebble Court, Homesville, Ryan leaves a cryptic message on his Dictaphone: "The first phase is hallucination. The second phase is glandular... The third phase is..." Refore he can finish the sentence Ryan crashes into a parked car and dies. The cops and various residents approach the wreck but do not see the bizarre tentacles that crawl out of the dead man's neck. Senior detective Sam Philips (Gerard Kennedy) and his rookie partner Johho (Andrew Daddo) start investigating the death. Was the dead man trying to contact one of the residents of Pebble Court? and why? Strange things begin to happen to the residents. Paul Matthews (William Mclnnes) drinks an innocent looking vitamin powder and starts to hallucinate, a ghostly apparition coming from his ribs. Two young Italian boys Sal and Gino (Nick Polites, Maurie Annese) drive into the outback and are captured by a feral, mutant family and the patriarch Pud (Vince Gill). The pregnant Cheryl Rand (Lisa McRune) loses her placenta. It hides in the house and then attacks her husband Brian (Brett Climo). The Noble family go to a health farm for "a holiday they will never forget". The cops begin to piece the puzzle together, making connections between the bizarre events in Homesville and the so-called health farm run by the insidious Dr Carrera (Ian Smith) and his assistant Shann (Regina Gaigalas). But can they stop Carrera's crazy scheme? Or will everything just keep melting?
