The film revolves around the crew of a tugboat, the Sea Star. After barely entering the eye of a hurricane, they see another ship on the radar - the ''Academik Vladislav Volkov'', a Russian missile and satellite tracking ship. With their boat taking on water faster than they can pump it out, the crew boards the Volkov, where they find that the electronics have been powered down and the crew has abandoned ship. Once they power up the ship, [[SealedEvilInACan bad things happen]].

* TheAssimilator: Even though the aliens claim mankind is the virus, there's a reason we call them that.

* SelfConstructedBeing: The monster builds itself a body out of machine and... [[HumanResources human parts]].
%%* SentientCosmicForce
* TakingYouWithMe: Partially averted by Richie's plan. The nice man planned on taking the OTHERS with the virus, not himself. But to be fair, he'd [[AxCrazy lost it]] by then.
* TechnoBabble: Richie asks the virus what it wants with them. The virus responds with a lengthy list, starting with "viscous neurological transmitters, oxygenated tissues, Aponeurus Superiorus Papelbrai." These are all actual things - that last one is part of an optic nerve - but the list was... unusually specific.
** Thankfully, Richie simplifies it for us.

** Interestingly, in the novel adaptation, [[spoiler:he was not willing. He entered the machine shop just as he did in the movie and the whole scene plays out the same, but it's extended a few moments.

* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: [[spoiler:Everton]] tries to sell out the others -- and the whole human race by extension -- to the virus in order to save his own hide. The virus responds by converting him. In the novelization, at least, this was not voluntary.
