The thriller that began five million years ago in another world has come to the Grant Museum of Zoology. Deep beneath the streets of London a construction team make a chilling discovery, ancient human remains alongside a missile of unknown origin. Digging back into the past will reveal more horror than the human mind can bear. Meanwhile the missile begins to unleash primeval instincts buried deep within the human psyche.

Historian of Biology and film-buff Professor Joe Cain (UCL Science and Technology Studies) will introduce this surprisingly scary film. The film is followed by a free drinks reception in a private view of the Museum.
