He makes so much money doing this that he needs do nothing else with his life but he was also asked to be a co-host of the Horror News Radio podcast last year as well. Riley and Harper are quarantined at the hospital. That is to say nothing of his conscious complicity in subsequently exposing his grandmother, sister, brother-in-law, love interest, clients, co-workers, and everyone else he comes into contact with, even after confirming he has contracted a necrotic virus that killed four people. One-note characters suffer the same symptoms that Samantha did in the last film, but never at the same length, nor the same kinds of psychological hang-ups. Furthermore, as the highly contagious disease devours his feeble flesh, desperate Riley must try to locate the original patient zero throughout the city of Los Angeles with the intention to find a cure, while at the same time, a driven detective is after him.
He thinks they are all jealous of him anyway. By the time continuity was retconned then rebooted eight movies later, the backstory behind a simple slasher had snowballed into a complicated convolution involving improbable family ties, Pagan holidays, conspiratorial cults, and tattooed druids.

It also follows all of the supporting characters from the first film that you you never needed to learn more about. The cops are forced to shoot everyone in the ensuing attack. These films ranged from subtle and understated to violent and gory. Day 6 — Riley wakes at home. Taking place right where Contracted left off, Contracted: Phase 2 is the latest example of a needless sequel that pretty much craps all over the original film. People literally talk to him while his mouth is caked over with the black vomit that he spews out every few hours.
As Riley decided to corporate with Detective Young, he eventually succumbed to the disease and was killed by B. Day 3 — After attacking her mother in the middle of the street, Samantha Williams is shot in the head and brought to the morgue for an autopsy. Day 5 — Riley begins slowly mutating from his infection. Director Josh Forbes actually does a good job of moving the story along, if nothing else, C2 moves quickly. The otherworldly atmosphere in this short film is palpable and a sense of dread drips in each frame. These scenes are filmed so effectively that viewers will feel vicariously relieved, particularly when Riley applies rubbing alcohol or surgical forceps to marks that eventually cover his entire body.
Riley only comes to life whenever he's picking at various little wounds all over his body. Harper dies and reanimates inside her body bag. Besides showing the same symptoms as Samantha, most of the people Riley loved the most were infected by his virus, especially his grandmother, Margie, Harper and finally his pregnant sister, Brenda at the credit scene.

He makes so much money doing this that he needs do nothing else with his life but he was also asked to be a co-host of the Horror News Radio podcast last year as well.
The only thing that has kept me going through this challenge of writing a review of a horror film every day during the month of October is the hopes that I find a horror film that is truly worth watching. Can he hold out long enough for the police to find the person who is spreading the infection in the hopes of providing a cure? But the story and the characters are so dumb that I was actually insulted by it. As it stands Contracted: Phase 2 pretty much jumps the proverbial shark, and it assumes that the people watching it are stupid enough to want to care about a third film. The film had its world premiere on July 5, 2015 at the. Riley's unconvincing transformation into a vengeance-seeking alpha-male is disappointing because Riley isn't much of a character to begin with. The police burst in and Riley collapses. Samantha sees a fast resolution to her doomed devolution and the plot picks up with her male friend Riley carrying the contagion with an equally befuddling disregard for commonwealth concerns and personal wellbeing.
Riley does not notice that Margie also shows signs of infection. Plot Riley Mercer is still recovering from the events at the end of previous film and he decides to go to the doctor having seen what happened to Sam. Instead, they divide their time between mocking the vanity of Riley's pregnant, self-help-book-writing sister Brenda Laurel Vale , and explaining B. .

Now the man who had fevered sex with her in the first film, Riley Matt Mercer , is carrying the disease, and looking for the man who infected Samantha for revenge before it does to him what it did to her. Exactly why Riley is looking for revenge, and not a cure is something the script by Craig Walendziak conveniently ignores. Her condition worsening, Harper pulls out her own eye. He thinks they are all jealous of him anyway. Riley, una de las últimas personas en entrar en contacto con Samantha, buscará a los responsables de la aparición de esta enfermedad altamente contagiosa no solo consuma su cuerpo, sino el mundo tal y como lo conocemos.
