Hotbed--Apocalyptic Horror with a Vengeance
Bryan Cassiday's latest nerve-shredding apocalyptic thriller Hotbed will be released in June.
The nightmare of the quarantine of a virus that triggers cannibalistic madness in its victims begins without fanfare in the small Southern California town of Costaguana.
Phoebe suspects her husband Jason, the mayor, of cheating on her with a prostitute, which is all the more shocking because Jason has the reputation of being an incorruptible mayor. Trailing him Phoebe watches him pick up a hooker in the red-light district on the Strip. She later goes to the hooker’s motel room to confront her and hears bloodcurdling screams and loud noises as she stands outside the hooker’s door. Phoebe flees in terror. She enlists the aid of her best friend Meredith, a misanthropic veterinarian who prefers animals to people, to accompany her to the hooker’s motel room the next day. While they are on the Strip, a helicopter appears in the sky and starts shooting people on the street without any explanation. The quarantine has begun.
