Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys (2014) Script

Yeah well this is what the problem is right here.

What are you doing here?



Hey girl.

No I'm supposed to be on my way back. I told you I had something else to do.

Yeah I'm out here dealing with this pipe.

You're going to deal with the pipe.

Why don't you cook a little something up and, uh, you know...

I'll bring some champagne.



See you when I see ya.

Yeah you're luck she's in a good mood.

Good morning all you lovely Michiganders! It's a great day to be Up North.

Highs in the upper 70s/low 80s today and all week, and not a drop of rain in sight.

I can't think of a better way to kick off the summer, and celebrate all of that ice finally melting in Lake Michigan, than to grab your bathing suit and your suntan lotion and hit the beach.

You know, they say in Michigan you're never more than six miles from a lake, so no excuses on not getting out there.

Winter is finally over, school's out, and the trees have all of their leaves again.

It's time to frolic the sun while we still have it!

So break out the barbecue, air out the cabin, and enjoy all that summer in Michigan has to offer, because in six months will all be up to our necks again in snow.

But for now, life is good in the Great Lakes State!

Hey, where's everyone?

The gas isn't working yet.

I've been trying to make you eggs for the last 10 minutes.

Should be working. I had hot water.

I'll call John from the rental office. In the mean time, this is all you get. Sorry.

I'll take it.

So where are the kids?

Hold that thought.

This is Michael.

What's that?

No no no, I can't hear you at all.

Nicole? Say it again?

Yeah? Can you come here, please?


Are you going somewhere?

I'm going to the beach with Alex.

No no, slow down. I got all that. What I didn't get was the part about the turbines?

What's happening?

What? Nicole wait!

What's going on with them?

Is the water at the beach ok?

Hold on a second Will...

It's fine. Lampreys don't attack people.

Unless you act like a fish.

I'm kidding.

Alright, cool story dad. Can I go now?

Yes. Just uh, keep your phone on ok? 'Cause Kyle may be meeting with you later.

Alright bye! Alright.

Yeah that's fine. Get your office together. Meet me by the turbines and we'll see what's jamming it up.

10 minutes is perfect. Ok.

Turbines are down at the Dam.

So what does that have to do with you?

Don't know yet.

Who's Alex?

Some boy that she met.

We're here a day, and she's already met a boy?

That's what happens when you take a teenager away from her friends.

So I've heard.

What ever happened to Joe?

She broke up with Joel 2 months ago.

Dad! Dad! Look what I caught!

That's great buddy.


Look, it's a big ole trout!

And check it out!


It's got a Lamprey!

Son of a gun. Look at that.

See, look all those other Lamprey marks.

Just like you said Dad. Isn't it cool?


Yeah cool. Can you just take it outside, please?

Just not our lucky day.

I know you're hungry boy.

I'm hungry too.

There ain't no fish in this water.

Right now. You see how hard they are to come off?


That's why you always want to handle them, right back here.

Behind the head.

Just to be safe.

Dad, Can I come to work with you?

I'll tell you what, how about tomorrow?


Alright, cool.

Cool. Look at that, huh?



You want to keep'em?


Alright, look, We gotta get him in a tank.

There's one in the back of my truck.

Keep the lid on it at all times. Otherwise it will climb up the side and get out.

Nice pet Michael. It looks like an anus with teeth.

Come on.

Hey hey hey!


Hi. Oh my god.


Those eels?

Oh actually they're not eels. These are Lampreys. They're uh-

Oh what are you? Are you a Fish and Wildlife service? Oh my, look at you.

So you know all about that stuff.

Little bit, yeah.

Totally do. Yeah.

I'm Ellen, I live just like right there.


Hi. Hi I'm Cate. Hi.


Thanks and this is my husband, Michael.

I just though I would just say hi and- That's nice of you.

You know, welcome you guys to the neighborhood.

That's very sweet of you. Thank you. So sweet.

So I also wanted to just tell you to be very careful.

Because Ted Jorgensen went missing last week.

And like no one can find him, and everyone thinks is like a, like a wolf, like attacked him or something.

We will probably be fine, right Michael?

Well, I mean you can never be too careful.

Sure. That's right. True. Yeah.

You know we are totally good. We're just here for the summer.

You guys are welcome to enjoy my pool.

Anytime, just feel free to help yourself.


Oh my god yes! I have new neighbors.

Yes, it is exciting. Thank you.

Enjoy the cookies.

Have a good day. Thanks for stopping by. That was sweet of you.

Can you believe that?

Yeah well I told you I was a, catch.


Uh ok yes. So, you're probably gonna have to bring home dinner, cause the gas isn't working.

Will sushi do?


I'll see you later. Alright. Bye.

There, here, and over here. The whole structure is breaking down and, and it leaks.

Now the dam is good for 10 years. 20 maybe.

You know, the biggest issue is with these turbines.

Not the Lamprey population. Once we get these cleared out and moving again, the Lampreys won't be able to slip through. And then, I'm sorry to say Mr. Parker, you'll have made this trip for nothing.

Let's hope so.

The turbines aren't the issue, Marcy.

The Lamprey population in this river is way above normal.

That's why I invited Mr. Parker here, because he's an expert.

Well, I think you're making a big deal about nothing. They're just fish.

Damn those things are ugly.

Yeah, you're right Rich. They do kinda look like YOU!

No no no no.

Don't do that.


I need to examine them first.

A dead Lamprey is a good Lamprey. Where is he?


Please. Just low a little respect for Mr. Parker. He is the expert, huh.

Look, there shouldn't be this many getting through.

Are there barriers set up?

Yeah, the velocity barriers, just like you guys told us.

And they're still getting in, huh?

Yeah. Well, I guess so.

Well, that's an issue that we're gonna have to address.

Excuse me, Mr. expert, dude that knows more then us...

We're done for today, right?

I'm sorry, Mitch, is it?

No it's rich. It's Rich.

Rich. Well if it's ok with you, I'd still like to take a count, And please, don't throw anymore dead ones in the water, ok?

I say, dumb the whole TFM on them, and be done with them.

Nuke the lake.

I like the smell of lampricide in the morning.

I'm sorry.

This guy for real?


The lampricide was good enough when I used it last summer.

Rich. I'm sure you're joking and all that, but just so you know the lampricide doesn't work on the adults.

Only on the eggs.

No no, it's worked. Its-Its always worked.

Well, she's as clear as she's gonna get.


Get out of the water. Throw the switch.

See if it works.


Good Job.

There doesn't appear to be too many so far.

But it doesn't hurt to be safe just in case the lake gets infested.

Especially if the turbine problems continue.

Do you think it'll work?

What the hell is that?

A stunboat.

Used in a large direct-current barrier to keep the population under control and reduce it.

Zap'em. Like'em. NOT!

Rich. Out.

We use the stunboat for the initial culling, alright?

And then we'll keep future generations away from the dam by building a barrier directly in the stream bed.

You'll only need it during mating season, and it'll be low enough that it won't affect the other species. But we can't have anymore Lamprey's entering the dam.

Ok I'm not sure if a stunboat, even a powerful one, is going to be able to take out the entire adult Lamprey populations.

I hear yeah. We need to look for a wider reaching solution.

Sounds like job security.

And that sounds like job insecurity...

Morning, people!

Nothing better in the world then sunrise on Lake Charlevoix.

It's like an angel kissed this little drip of water.

Good morning, Mayor.


You must be the guy they sent from Fish and Wildlife.

I'm Michael Parker, sir.

Ah, Bruce Akerman- Nice to met you.

...but just call me, Mayor.


I only have 3 years more to hear that title. Ok.

So, get me up to speed.

The turbines are working.

That's great Rich, but it doesn't help with the fish problem.

Actually it does, Mayor.

Um, we need the turbines working to keep the population of Lamprey's under control here, and to the connecting waterways to Lake Michigan.

That ain't gonna happen.

This is the best fishing in the world. Right here on Lake Charlevoix.

Ain't that right, Will?

Yes, sir. The best.

Happen you hear anything about Ted?


So, what do you think?

Two days at the most?

Well, It's-It's hard to say at this point...

Look. I know this is a big government job...

But I have a town to run... that loves its summers.

I can't afford any tourists.

This is a small town.

We need all the revenue we can get.

I understand that Mayor. All I am saying is that, 2 days - might not be enough time to cull the entire population.

I'll tell you what...

You get this done, in 2 days...

Scratch that...

One day, and I'll treat you and your family to a fabulous steak dinner at Cobbs.

You'll love it!

Thick, Juicy...

You're not a vegetarian, are you?

I don't want to offend your...

Western sensibilities...

No I'm not a vegetarian, But the important issue here...

I have a town to run! OK... great chatting with you.

Do you really think the lampreys can get into Lake Michigan?

It's possible if we don't get this population under control.

But that's 20,000 square miles! That-That's insane, Will.

Yeah. Look, let's get back to base. We'll talk about this after lunch.

Let's go.

Ready? Yeah.

You're holding it wrong.

I'm like the queen of selfies.

Here you're majesty. Let me do it.

That's cold. That's cold.

You're such a jerk! Hey hey! That's freezing.

Oh good. It turn out cute though.


Hey Nicole!

Hey Nicole!

Are you lost, boy? Or just hungry?

What's your name, boy?

Look at you, scootin' your butt.

I'm gonna call you, Scooter.

Come on boy!

Hey Scooter!

Is that your little brother?

Oh yeah.



He looks happy.


He's kind of a weird kid.

Really? Not like in a bad way or anything, but...

He's just always by himself.

He really looks up to my dad and stuff, but my dad's like always gone. So...

Doesn't he have any friends?

No? No.

We just moved here.


I'll be his friend.


Heck yeah.

I need a new fishing buddy.

That's really sweet of you.


Scooter! Come here boy!


Kyle, you're ok?

I can't find my stupid glasses.

Hey don't worry little dude. I'll find them.

The dog I was playing with, Scooter. I can't find him. He's hurt.


Come on. We'll find him.

You're hurt.

Oh my god!

You're all bloody!

That is not my blood.

Oh my god!

It's fish guts.


Get out of the water!

You found my glasses! Yeah!

What about Scooter?

No luck. Are you ok?

Yeah. Yeah it's just fish guts.

Barf. Barf. Ok Come on. Come on.

Well,... gut is that without any natural enemies, the Lampreys can get out of control. But, there is a dam that separates Lake Charlevoix from the rivers. I think we can contain them pretty easily.

Well, that's a bit of good news. But Lamprey's jump.

Yeah, but not that high.

How high is the wall?

You know, it's different in different places.

Well, make sure that the water levels are down by about 10 feet.

Lampreys can't jump that high.

Really? I have a hickey on the back of my neck that says otherwise.

They attack people?

Certain species can be very aggressive. If they run out of food in their area, they're going to look for blood anyway they can.

It's interesting. Ok? Thanks.

Sure. Just don't let them get any further.

Yeah will do. I'll talk to you later.

Hi Nicki!

Dad! The craziest thing just happened at the beach!

There was fish blood all over my legs, Dad!

What's that?

It was so gross.

There were dead fish and those Lamprey things in the water.

Alright, how many of them were there?

I don't know. Like-like a lot.

Sweetie I'm sorry you had to go through that.

Alright, we'll check it out for you.

Dad, can you come home?

Awe, sweetheart I can't right now.

Look I know it was scary for you, but they only go after fish, ok?

They won't attack people unless they're starving.

But, Dad...

Sweetie... I-I-I gotta go right now. I'll be home later tonight.


No-no. You're gonna be fine. Trust me, ok? Bye.


Thank you, sir.

That was Mayor Akerman.

He said that people have been reporting a school of fish-

Washed up a shore dead. Yeah, my daughter just told me.

Covered in bloody lesions. That's...gotta be the Lamprey's, right?

Well, I would assume so. But how many Lampreys can be in the Lake?

I don't know. I figured it was just a handful.

I thought our problem was with the river infestation.

Well either way, we're gonna have to check out how they're slipping through the barriers and the turbines.

Rich will take care of it.

Rich! On it!

Hey baby.

Wanna go for a ride?



I should probably go with him.

I want to see if the Lamprey numbers are increasing.

Don't worry about it. He'll report back.

Alright, he'll handle that. You and I have to see how they're slipping through. Come on.


Do you need me to go with you? I mean, go with you guys?

No we're good. Thank you, Marcy.



Mr. Expert, telling me what to do. Making me sit on a boat.

Yep. They're getting through alright.

Operation rescue. Completed.


Operation cold one, is a go.


Where all the fish?

The Lampreys must have gotten them all.

Oh my god.

I've never seen that before.

There's nothing left for them to eat.

They destroyed the entire eco system.

Or scared it away.

They're coming right through.

I don't get it.

They're using their mouths like suction cups to move the rocks.

I've only ever seen them do that when they build nests.

That is desperate for food.

A desperate Lamprey is a dangerous Lamprey.

I think they are doing the exact same thing over there.

At this rate, they are going to tear a hole in the dam.

We're going to have to rethink our plan.

That's Rich's boat.

Yeah, Where's Rich?

Hey...Hello? Hello? Got you. Leave a message, this is Rich...

Call's not going through.

My sister dates a guy that works at sanitation. That disappeared about a week ago.

Yeah I heard about this, uh...

Ted...something, right?

Jorgenson. Yeah. At first everybody thought he went to town to blow off some steam, but my sister insisted something bad happened to him.

Like what?

I don't know.

...but they found his truck.

And they didn't find him.

Alright, let get Rich's boat.

Is that blood? Quick, grab the corner.

Don't grab it! Don't grab it!

Don't pull! Don't pull!

Damn this thing is strong!

Hold on!

Hold still. Hold still.

Son of a bitch!

This is Will?

They found Rich.

They found his body.

Oh Rich.

What did they do to your face?


Yeah hi, is this the Coroner's office?

Yes, this is Jim.

Hi, this is Michael Parker from Fish and Wildlife. You guys got a body in there earlier with marks all over it. I need you no to do anything with it until we get there.




Yes, I have an emergency down at the Coroner's office.

Rich, what a way to go.

Poor guy.

Right this way, Mayor. Michael's waiting inside with the body.

What the heck?

Oh my god, Jim.

What the hell is all over him?


From what?


That's impossible.

There's too many of them. They're all over his body.

How did they get in here?

Rich was dead when he came in.

So they were just feeding off of him from the inside?


Mayor, we have to close the Lake, Now!

And that's just the start. We have a much bigger issue at hand here.


I think the Lamprey that killed him and the Coroner... crawled off and into the drain.

Into the pipes!

Yeah. You need to shut the water system down, Now!

Shut down the...


No. Even the residents will leave.

Look, I know I'm asking a lot Mayor but-

You want to shut down the water system? because of a bunch of baby eels, that will be dead in 2 hours?

Lampreys live for over 14 years. They lay approximately 100,000 eggs at a time. Each.

You do not want these creatures in your pipes! Not even one of them!

Let's go to my office, where we can discuss our options... friendlier confines.


How did so many get out anyway?

I though you said you could contain this in just a day?

No no, YOU said a day. I said I needed more time.

Now I need to do an accurate count of the Lamprey. Otherwise we won't be able to contain the problem. It's gonna take a few days. May be a week.

I can't do a week.

I need the time to do a survey of the Lake.

Look, Mr. Parker, I assure you that safety is my number one priority.

But I can't afford to lose more tourist revenue. You're just not working fast enough!

Those bites are just hickies.

Does that look like a hickie to you, Sir?

Alright. Alright.

Just listen to me just for a second, Mayor, ok?

These Lampreys are stronger and more aggressive then any other that I've ever seen.

The rate at which they can drain blood is staggering!

What? What is so funny?

Have you ever eaten, Lampreys?

They're not so bad.

Chewy, like scallops.

They love'em in Europe.

Maybe that's a direction to explore. Turn a negative into a positive.

These Lampreys attached us-

Nah nah nah nah. That's not acceptable.




This is us, in Charlevoix County, ok?

Right? This is the dam on the Jordan River.

Now, they must be getting into the pipes at the reservoir by the dam.

If the continue to breach the dam, they're gonna end up in Lake Charlevoix, From there they will be able to easily jump over the barriers at Round Lake and Pine River...

And then they are gonna end up in Lake Michigan, Which it's gonna be next to impossible to contain them.

And they're gonna head over into the canals, and onto the Mississippi.

And we can't allow it to get to that point.

We have to close the river, the Lake, and all public access to water until we can eradicate this problem for good.

We'll close the beaches for the weekend and maybe the water pipes for an hour or two.

Work overtime to fix the dam and gather up the last Lampreys from the Lakes and the water pipes.

Are you insane?

Rich and the Coroner are dead! And you're gonna tell people to stay away from the waves for the weekend? And close the pipes for an hour or two?

These Lamprey are fast, they're strong, and they're out for human blood!

Now you need to call a press conference and tell people to stay away from the water!

Why haven't you tried poison?

We did! It didn't work!

Michael, I'm practically doing your job for you.

Poison only works on the eggs.

Well use more!

Leave now.

I'm going to work on my...Lamprey recipes.

Go go go.

The Mayor's a jackass. We'll go to press ourselves.

I'm not endangering more lives.

Fine. But um...

I'm gonna be heading over to Rich's house.

So I can offer his family my condolences.


You outta call your own family. Let them know you love them.

Yeah, you're probably right.

I'll see you later.

Yeah hi, um...

I need the number actually actually could you just connect me to channel 6, please.

Yeah, I'll hold.

Lamprey infestation has escalated beyond our initial projections. We need to evacuate the greater Lake Charlevoix area.

The Lampreys we're dealing with are bigger, stronger, and more deadly the Lampreys we've known in the past. We advised you to stay away from all fresh water sources. They can maneuver through shallow depths of water, and on land with minimal moister.

Even you home tap. They've contaminated water lines-

Hey Michael, I'm returning your call and listening to you on TV.

...and you're here.

What happened?

Long story. Where's Kyle's Lamprey?

I don't know.

We have to find it. Kyle! Can you get in here please!

What's going on?

And the Department of Fish and Wildlife will be working around the clock to rid the waterways of this threat. Um, in the meantime, Please be advice that you should avoid all fresh water sources. Including your home tap.

Look, these-these Lampreys are hungry, and they're dangerous.

And if that means that you need to-to vacation somewhere else for the summer, and so be it.


Good Afternoon. You've reached the department of Fish and Wildlife.

Yes, I'd like to speak to Josh Friedman.

Hello Mayor. I'm afraid he's not in the office right now.

Have him call me once he gets in, Thank you.

That's-That's all I have.

And that man Rich, he's still missing?

No, he's dead.

Mom! Dad! Where's my Lamprey?

Hey buddy.

Listen, you understand the second that we find it, we have to kill it, right?

Dad, No! I like it!

I know you do, son...but we don't have any other choice.

Go look for it, ok?

This is getting way to dangerous.

I want you all out of here tonight. I booked you tickets already.

Wait a second, we haven't even talked about this.

I know Cate, I'm getting a bad f Found it!

Where's the Lamprey?

I killed it in the garbage disposal.

Good. Good Job.

Isn't leaving a little extreme?

Cate, I've never seen anything like this before.

Good job buddy.

Nicole, pack your stu-

What's going on here?

Hello Mr. parker...I'm Alex.

Well Alex, what the hell are you doing in my daughter's bedroom?

Dad, stop it.

I told her that he can come over but she wasn't supposed to have the door closed.

We're not even doing anything.

Not yet, you don't know how guys think.

You! out! Now! Yes, sir.

Alex wait.

No no no, there's no waiting. There's just going.

You took away all my friends for the entire summer.

Excuse me for wanting a social life!

Just pack your stuff. You're leaving.

That's not fair!

Nicole, you wanted to be back with your got your wish, ok?

Well Alex and I-

Just met!

Now I don't have time to get into this with you, just do as I say. Please!

You're the worst Dad! Yeah yeah yeah I know.

I freakin' hate you!

It would have been nice if you PRETENDED to want my input on any of this.

Cate, you don't understand-

It's Will, I have to take it.

Of course you do.

Cate, come...

Come here.

Will, talk to me.


There's too many.

They're coming through the turbines, right over the barriers.

Straight into Lake Charlevoix.

Alright, uh...

I'll be right over.

Please hurry.

There you are! Now keep quiet and don't move.

My parent's think I put you in the garbage disposal.

I know. I know. I'm sorry baby.

I'm sorry. It's gonna be ok.


Look, I gotta go.


...I'll fill you in the details later.

You need food.

I can't believe my stupid dad.

He's always just trying to control my life.

Yeah your dad is totally just bugging out.

I mean, it's just a few Lampreys.

He is totally geeking out.

I know...

I can't believe he's making you leave.

You know, I'm not going! Alright?

This is my life, not his.

He can't tell me what to do!

Oh hey hold on Nicole I gotta take this, but I promise I'll call you right back.

Mr. Pools Pool cleaning?

Hi Alex it's Ellen, how are you?

Hey Ms. Ellen what's up?

So there is a problem in my pool. It's kind of an emergency and I was hoping that you could come over and fix it.

Sure, I'm on my way.

Ok great! Also, I'm actually not gonna be here but I might be back later.

Yeah, that sounds great.

Ok. Alright. Great.

I'll talk to you soon.

Hey Nicole.

Hey listen. Why don't I come pick you up?

Ms. Ellen, this lady, I clean her pool, she's gonna be stepping out for a bit...

So we can have the whole place all to ourselves for a swim.

That sounds great. I'll meet you there.

I hope you like Cabernet, Alex.

What the heck?

Ok, the flight is for this evening. So we have to hurry.

Can I stay with Dad?

Absolutely not.

But Dad promised me I could stay with him.

Kyle, please stop.

I made friends with a dog at the Lake today.

Can I go to the beach?

What? No! The water is filled with Lampreys.

But Dad says they're harmless.

Yeah, well now Dad says different.

Are you calling Dad a liar?


Please, mom? The dog is my only friend and he needs me.

Nobody likes me.

I'm just a kid that nobody likes.

Get use to it.

Oh baby.

Everybody likes you.

I really like you.

I love you.

I love you too.

I don't think I can hear you.


I love you.


I love you.

One more time.

I love you too.

I love you.

You're so amazing.

Yeah she's cool with it. I come over here all the time.

You know, we could have just gone to the beach.

No way. I'm not swimming in fish pee.


Come on you woos.

She's not here. Trust me.

She's just...old.

She's literally like 30.


Ms. Ellen?


Nobody's here. - Ok. Just to ourselves.

Ha! Who's a sissy now?

It's on.

Nicole, are you packed yet?

Nicole, are you packed?


Kyle, have you seen your sister?

Oh my god.

Hey, it's Nicole. Don't leave a message, just text me.

Hey Nicole, it's me. Where are you?


Get out of there!

Call the police! Call the police!

Calm down! Calm down! Calm down!

9-1-1, what's the emergency?

They're all running away. Yeah.

The theory is that, the smell of their own dead repels them. Signals something's wrong.

Now, let's get out of here.

Now, you two work on repairing the holes.

I'll wrangle the Lampreys to a designated area and we can shock them there.

Oh! Is that the Mayor?

You! Michael!

Out! Now!

Excuse me?

You heard me!


Your press conference scared off the whole town!

Your plans are slow, and they don't work!

Well I'm sorry but you can't fire me. I report to US Fish and Wildlife.

To Josh Friedman? Ha! He agrees with me. You're out!

Mayor, you're making a big mistake here. You don't understand what's at stake.

If you don't leave now, you'll be in breach of several trespassing laws.

All which carry hefty fines and jail time.

Sir, seriously-

No no no. It's ok.

That's fine then.

Suit yourself.

Good luck Mayor. You're gonna need it.


Sir, Seriously-

Will, I trust everything will be under control soon?

Yes, but we have so much- Mayor! - Sounds good!

What are we gonna do? I don't know.

Call Cate.

Hey, you've reached Cate Parker. I can't get to the phone right now. So leave a message.


You're not gonna believe this.

That son of a bitch Mayor fired me.

I'm taking the next flight out.

I hope you all are on the flight already. Um...

Look, um um sorry about before. Call me when you land.

I love you...


Michael, it's Will.

The Lampreys have completely broken through the dam.

I need your help. Please. Can you-

Will, you heard the Mayor. I can't do anything.

Michael, if Lake Charlevoix gets infested, I'll pass over to Lake Michigan.

Then it's gonna go through every waterway in America.

This is a problem we have to stop, now!

Awe, screw it.

Alright, I'm on my way.

Call channel 6 News... Channel 6 Station News?

Hello, this is Michael parker.

I want to call another press conference.

Sick! Sick!

Someone help!



Where you going?

Hello, Michael Parker from Fish and Wildlife here again.

The Lamprey infestation has escalated beyond our initial projections.

We need to evacuate the greater Lake Charlevoix area.

The Lampreys were dealing with are bigger, stronger, and more deadly than the Lampreys we've known in the past.

We advise you to stay away from all fresh water sources.

They can maneuver through shallow depths of water and even on land with minimal moisture.

Even your home tap.

They have contaminated water lines throughout the county and a deadly threat to all life.

These Lampreys...they're hungry, determined, and dangerous.

We gotta get out of here, now.

We'll figure out a new game plan when we get to somewhere safer.

There's just too many of them.

Marcy, go check the school playing fields and see what the damage is.

Will do.

Call Cate.

Hey, you've reached Cate Parker.

I can't get to the phone right now, so leave a message.


Call Nicole.

Hey it's Nicole. Don't leave a message, just text me.

Hey Nicole it's Dad, are you guys on the plane?

Call me when you land.

Everything ok?

Yeah yeah. It should be fine. I just got a funny feeling. It's the second time I call.

Masses of Lampreys have been sighted heading north to the lake Charlevoix school playing fields. All units please be aware.

Call Marcy, make sure she's hearing this.


Are you ok?

No I'm fine, but...

Can you see the Lampreys?

Yeah, and there are hundreds of them.

Marcy, you need to get out of there.

Marcy! Hang in there.

Get out!


Stop! Stop! Stop!


Marcy! get out of the car! Will!

Get out of the car now!

Get out!

Get out of the car!


You would have been killed.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

Look, we need to get back into town, get a map of the water system and see where these things are fanning out to so we can stop'em.

You'll be ok?

I'm sorry..

We're arriving at the house now.

Where's the body?

Right there. There's Lampreys in the pool.

What is going on?

They're leaving. Everybody's getting out of here! Kyle's all by himself! Come on!


Kyle! Nicole wait.

You go. I have to make sure my family's ok.

Be safe.



Kyle? I can hear you!

Mom! Are you in the bathroom?

I'm up here! I'm in the attic! I'm up here!

Kyle, where are you?


I'm in the bathroom, Nicole. Stay where you are!

Where's Kyle? Is he ok?




Go! Get out of here! Go find your brother! Please.

Oh god no!

Get out of here!


Nicole! Go!

No way! - Go Nicole! - No!

Nicole just go!

There's too many of them! Listen to me, I need you to go find your brother! Please!

Nicole! Go! No way!


Come on!

What about Kyle?

He wasn't in there! Where is he?

Nicole! Are you alright? I'm ok! I'm ok!


Mom! Help! Help! Help!

Earlier he said that he wanted to go to the beach.

Scooter. Scooter! It's this dumb dog he met down there. Let's go there!

No! You're not going alright? You cannot go. It's too dangerous.

There's Lampreys everywhere.

You'll be safe here. There's no sewer or water pipes.

Be careful.

I love you.

I love you.

I can't loose you.


It looks like a ghost town.

Yeah. I guess the press conferences worked.

So what are we doing here?


We need to get the Lampreys all in one place. So we can generate a powerful enough current.

But I need the city plans to find out where. I'm assuming Akerman has them.

I'm sure he split town by now.


Alright, well let's just go. No no no no.

I always keep something on me for the occasions.

Viola. Really?





What the hell's going on? There's blood all over the place.

Grab the map. Right.

It should be in his desk.

It's coming from the bathroom. I've got it!

I've got the map. Akerman? Akerman?

Oh my god! Close the door!

What's the noise?

They're breaking through the pipes.

Will! Will! Will!

Come on! Let's get out of here!

Get it off!

You ok? Yeah yeah. I'm good. Thanks!

Let's get out of here.


What's... What's the plan with the... maps that we almost died getting? What are we...

We got to get to public works. Shut the water system down. Limit their access to the town.

It's worth a shot.

This is the middle of dry land, the center of the town. It's insane.

Come on!

What is it?

I'm just...

I just hope my family's ok.


Help! Mom! Help!


Help! Mom!


Nicole, sweetie are you ok?

I'm home alone in the yard. I don't know where mom or Kyle are.

Alright, I'm coming home to get you. Can you hold off till I get there?

Yep! Dad! Please please hurry!


Dad's on his way.


I don't know where he is.

Burn them all mom. Burn them all.



It's working mom. They're leaving.



I'm so glad you're ok! You came.

Where's Kyle?

I don't know. I found his bloody jacket at the beach.

No! No! Oh my god! No!

I should've listened to you.



It's Kyle! Kyle!

I can hear you! Hurry!

Kyle! Wait a second Cate! Kyle!



Cate! No no no you can't go in!

Cate! Wait wait!

Listen! Listen!

Don't worry we'll get to him. Kyle!

If he's in the attic he's in the safest place. He can be, ok?

We'll get to him. We'll get to him.

Kyle! We're coming!

Kyle, can you hear us?

I can hear you! Hurry!



Is there a ladder in your truck? No.

What about the truck itself?

It won't be tall enough.

Nicole, did you see a ladder in the tool shed?

Alex! He'll be here any second. He's got a ladder in the back of his truck.


I can't turn off the water.

The valve is stuck.

Your family?

They left town already.

Why didn't you go with them?

Thanks for coming Allen, you have a ladder in your car?

Yeah, it's in the back of the truck actually. Ok. Good.

Dad, it's Alex. Alec, Alex! Go help him shut off the water. We'll get Kyle.

Hey hey Will! You need a hand with that?

Yeah Alex, do you have any pliers?

Pliers! pliers! I got some actually. One sec.

Let's see man.

Right here. Wait wait wait.

Alright. Let's go.

No, I'm going. I already lost him once. I need you to watch Nicole.

Here. Alright.

Be careful, Cate.

Kyle, I'm coming!

Michael. Nicole. Behind you. Lampreys.


Mom! Mom Help! Hang on Kyle!

Wait wait wait. Come on!

Pull it back! Come on!

It's stuck!

I'm going to break the window.

Mom! Mom!

Kyle baby! Take my hands.

You did it!

Yeah. You did it!

Oh god.

No! No! Don't pull. Dad showed me how.

Is he ok?

Yeah, he's ok!

Alright You have to go down the ladder. You ready? Ok.

You're so brave.

Kyle! No Dad!

Carefully. Careful.


Kyle! I'm so glad you're ok.

You scared us.

Cate! Cate!

It's my ribs.

I'll be fine.

Good job buddy.

We gotta go.

Let's go.


Ok so we get to the public works. We turn off the water and then-and then what?

Are we heading back to the dam?

I thought that at first. Now I'm thinking we can use the water to our advantage.

Cause we gotta get them all in one place.

Somewhere with a reservoir.

Are we going with you?

I need to see you all safe before Will and I leave, Dad! No!

Son it's ok. We're going to take you somewhere where you'll be safe.


We'll be safe here. There are no water pipes around and it's a high vantage point, water runs downhill so you'll see the Lampreys before they see you.

Are you ok, sweetie? Yeah I'll be fine.

Watch out!

Stay back! It's live!

We gotta get to the power station. I've got an idea.

In here.

So it's like your stunboat, only on a massive scale.


But how are we going to attract all the Lampreys to one location?

Bio salts.

Bio salts?

They're secreted by the liver. To tract a mate.

That could work.


Alright everyone, look...

We're going to get the livers from the dead Lampreys.

Will and I are going to use them to draw the live Lampreys, through the reservoir... into the power station, where we're going to electrocute them.

Alright. We're not separating again.

I want to help.

Us, too.

Of course, I couldn't do it without you.

Now let's get to work.

Here's what they look like buddy.

Keep these on you. They'll keep the live ones away. For a little while. Come on. Let's go.

Everyone get in the truck.

The smell is attracting them. It's working.

Something's got me!

Get them off! Get them off!

Don't move!

Get them off! Get them off!

Oh my god! I'm sorry! I'm sorry!

No! Stay here!

Oh my god. I'm sorry! It's ok. I'm ok.

Are you ok?

We need to go. Just go!

Let's go! Come on!

Let's go!

Here's the power plant.


This is the main reservoir beneath the power station.

This is right where we want the Lampreys.

You guys go off there.

Come with me.

You guys go find the switch. We'll use the livers to attract the Lampreys.

It's so dark. How do we know they're down there?

One second. Listen.

They're down there. Dump'em in.

Back up, back up, back up!

Are you guys ok?

Yeah, there's just some Lampreys.

Alex, get the weed whacker!

Throw them in.

You guys finish this. I got that. Ok.

Alright, stay back.

Alex! Back up! Back up!

It's not gonna be enough.

We need more Lampreys.

Look, I can go down the ladder, kill some Lampreys, harvest some livers and come out quick.

It'll work. No no. It's too risky. We gotta find another way.

We don't have enough time. It's too risky. Now come on!

I'm gonna stay here. Stay and watch.

Go! Be with you family! Alright alright! I'll be back! I'm coming!

Nicole! Nicole!

Alright look, gut'em. We need more livers.

Where's Will?


Take the kids and find the main switch!

Will, I'm on my way!

You don't have to do this! Come on!

Get out of here Michael!

Go on to the power station!

I'm not leaving without you.

I'm not young like them. I don't have a family like you!

I don't have anything!

Let me have this!

I'm not leaving without you.

Michael! Go!


Stubborn fool! Takes one to know one.

What you said about not having anyone, it's not true! You have me!

Help me!

Come on! Come on!

Go Michael! Go! No! No!

I'll be right behind you!

I'll be right behind you! Alright.

Just hold them off for a second.


Give me your hand. Give me your hand.


I can't.

I can't get good footing. I'm slipping.

Don't worry, I got you.

Kyle! No! Go away!

Stay away! Stay away Kyle!

Which one leads to the reservoir?

Kyle, check your map.


Flip the switch now!

I think this is it! Just try it!


Do it!


Good job!...Alex.

The Lamprey infestation has been eradicated at Lake Charlevoix.

County officials have advise that it is now safe for residents to return to their homes. The clean up process is under way.

But may take some time before everything is back to normal.

Hey! Did you say goodbye to Alex already?


Everything ok?

Everything is great. The city has my recommendations. Now it's up to them.

Can we get out of here? Yes we can. The sooner the better.


Ok. Let's go!

Come on! Let's go guys!

Are we leaving it? Yeah somebody else get's to do it for us. Let's go.

Get out of here.

Come idiot, get out of here!

Get out of here!

Get out of here, you stupid mutt!

Stop the car! Stop the car!

It's Scooter!


Come on buddy! Come on in!

Watch his tail. Watch his tail. Watch his tail.
