Le jour de son départ à la retraite, le magistrat italien Rosario Saracini reçoit d'un inconnu un film en super 8. Il y découvre les images de l'enlèvement par les Brigades rouges, le 16 mars 1978, de l'ancien Président du Conseil Aldo Moro, qui fut ensuite séquestré puis assassiné. L'agrandissement d'une image de la pellicule lui permet d'y reconnaître un colonel du SISMI, les services secrets militaires italiens. Cet élément troublant, qui vient s'ajouter à d'autres détails non élucidés, incite le juge à explorer l'affaire à nouveau.

A group of scientists are working on a serum called Death One, which reanimates the dead. When Dr. Alan Holder (Robert Marius) and his assistant Norma experiment on a human corpse, the corpse becomes a zombie, prompting Dr. Holder to resign from the project. As he prepares to surrender the serum to waiting military officers, a small group of criminals ambush the center; all but one are killed, and the surviving criminal manages to abscond with Death One. During a chase, the container with the serum is shot out of his hand and breaks; as he tries to pick it back up, he accidentally touches the serum. He flees to the Sweet River Resort and settles in Room 4. General Morton (Mike Monty) promises Dr. Holder that he and his men will capture the criminal. By the time they catch up to him, however, he has already succumbed to the disease, but not before infecting a bellhop and killing a maid before finally cutting off his own hand in a failed attempt to stop the spread of the infection. General Morton orders the patrons and staff killed and buried in a mass grave, and condemns the resort; the criminal's remains are delivered to him and his right-hand men, Tracey (Bruno Mattei) and Cheney (Claudio Fragasso), and burned. As Dr. Holder and Norma fear, the ashes quickly infect the air, killing an entire flock of birds passing by.
