Set twenty years after Dr. Edwards' encounter with a bat-like creature in the radioactive cave system near Phantom Lake, Wisconsin, Dr. Edwards is preparing to start training his successor at the Jackson Lunar Base in preparation for his retirement in one week. In the midst of this, he makes a remarkable discovery - a strange plant inside a cave on the lunar surface, which is the first evidence of alien life.

Unfortunately, the plant's spores prove decidedly toxic and their curious properties animate the bodies of those who are killed by them. It will fall to Dr. Edwards and his colleagues to save the world from the so-called moon zombies before they find a way to get to Earth.
