Gross infections and monsters too plague the protagonists of the new sci-fi shocker.

Lionsgate releases THE SPORE, written and directed by D.M. Cunningham, on VOD/digital platforms and DVD tomorrow, November 2. Jovonnah Nicholson, Jeanie Jefferies, Haley Heslip, Peter Tell, Jackson Ezinga, Justin Golinsky and Brian Hillard star; the synopsis: “Fleeing from civilization as a horrific plague ravages mankind, Meadow [Nicholson] gets a lift from a stranger. When she sees that the driver is gruesomely infected, Meadow escapes and takes refuge in a cabin that’s abandoned…or is it? The apocalypse started days earlier when an evil spore, long dormant beneath an ancient ice field, was awakened by global warming. Now, as 10 strangers try to evade the madness, some must succumb to the hideously mutating fungus and claim the survivors as their bitter prey.”
