Consumed

Trapped beneath a collapsed building, a grieving wife struggles to protect her treacherous husband from a horde of parasitic monsters.

They survived the end of the world... but they may not survive each other.

Civilization has collapsed. Overtaken by an infestation of mutated parasites, most of humanity has become a horde of shambling corpses.

Married couple Parker and Caroline are members of a small group of survivors. While out scavenging for supplies, a series of immense earthquakes traps them in a warehouse basement. As they struggle to free themselves, a swarm of the undead monsters senses them and surrounds their underground prison.

They hold on to the futile hope that their friends will arrive in time to dig them out. But as the minutes tick by, the strain of their predicament leads to a devastating confrontation that uncovers their darkest secrets.

Terrified, entombed, shattered... will Parker and Caroline be consumed by the evils above their heads, or the evils inside their hearts?
