King of Thorn

Film Synopsis

A killer disease called “Medusa”, which turns the body to stone, has become a worldwide epidemic.
Clinging to hope of a future cure, a group of chosen infected are cryogenically frozen in an underground facility in an ancient castle. Set upon by the monsters, in their panic to escape, only seven of the Medusa sufferers survive. How long have they been asleep? And what’s happened to the world? The monsters continue to attack relentlessly. And the time limit until the disease consumes them approaches moment by moment.
And so the curtain opens on this mystery-veiled escape drama.
