OPIS FILMURok 2008. Londyn jest straszliwie zanieczyszczony i częściowo zalany wodą wskutek efektu cieplarnianego. W zatopionych tunelach i mrocznych zakamarkach miasta działa tajemniczy morderca, który zabija swoje ofiary i wyrywa im serca. Detektyw policji Harley Stone obsesyjnie ściga potwora. Trzy lata wcześniej zabił jego partnera. Z Michelle Foster łączyło go kiedyś uczucie, obecnie znów się spotykają, a Stone podejrzewa, że kobieta może stać się następną ofiarą. Tajemniczy morderca zostawia na zwłokach kabalistyczne znaki, a badanie śladów zębów których odcisk zdjęto z pogryzionego serca pewnej dziewczyny także nie wnosi nic nowego do sprawy. Stone dostaje nowego partnera-absolwenta Oxfordu, Dicka Durkina. W czasie ataku na Michelle morderca zostaje postrzelony przez Stone’a. Analiza resztek tkanki mordercy wskazuje na szczurze pochodzenie...

PLOT – In the year 2008, heavy rainfall has flooded large areas of London. Rookie police officer Dick Durkin (Duncan) is assigned to partner Harley Stone (Hauer), a burnt-out and highly cynical homicide detective who, according to his commanding officer, survives on „anxiety, coffee and chocolate” after being unable to prevent the murder of his partner by a serial killer several years previously. Now however, the murders have begun again and Stone and Durkin are assigned the case. After investigating the scenes of several killings, they appear no closer to identifying the killer, with their only clues being that the murders seem to be linked to the lunar cycle, and that the killer has multiple recombinant DNA strands, having absorbed the DNA of the victims.

Finally, after Stone’s girlfriend Michelle (Cattrall) is kidnapped, the detectives track the killer deep into the flooded and disused London Underground system and discover the truth: the killer is not human. It’s a horrific and possibly demonic form of life that is fast, savage, bloodthirsty and fixated upon killing Stone just as it previously killed his partner. In fact, as the movie progresses, each killing and „appearance” of the monster is an attempt to lure Stone closer and closer.

During a tense battle in and around an abandoned underground train, Michelle is found suspended over the water as bait, but Stone is able to pull the monster’s heart from its chest and kill it. However, as the policemen leave the scene with Michelle in a rescue dinghy, bubbles of air are seen breaking the surface of the water, suggesting that there may be more than one monster.
