In 1906, a crew of workers at the Panama Canal unearthed something that could not be identified or explained. Something sinister. And very much alive...
One hundred years later, a team of scientists gather at an underground facility in New Mexico to determine what this being is - the most amazing discovery in the history of mankind - and how it has managed to survive. A biologist will analyze its structure. A veterinarian will study its behavior. A linguist will translate its language. But even the greatest minds in the world can not answer one inescapable question: Could this ancient creature, this mockery of God and nature, actually be the ancient demon known as... the Beast?
