Shot as a prequel to the first movie, the story centers about the initial outbreak of the virus. On a remote island, an immune patient named Porter is being held in a lab by scientists trying to create a vaccine. Porter forces a lockdown of the station and spreads the virus outside of the lab by infecting a mouse.
When four friends on a bachelor party boat ride step foot on the island, two of them are infected by swimming in the contaminated water. Searching for help, they make their way to the science lab but find everyone inside infected or dead. The two surviving friends leave the island with Porter. Tricking them into drinking contaminated water and destroying the motor, Porter is the only person to leave the island in the end.
