Title: Lab Mouse Revenge
By: Noelle Messier
After a long night of terrifying nightmares of mice being gassed to death, Rachel, a Veterinary Technician at an animal research laboratory drives to work to tender her resignation. Rachel joins her boss, Dr. Warner to help with a tour of Veterinary Technician students. On the tour they explain the different strains of genetically enhanced mice, euthanasia procedures, cervical dislocation, eye bleeding, cardiac sticks, and necropsy. Peter, a researcher working with a particular strain of aggressive mice, chops a mouse's head off with a small guillotine to study its brain. Three mice in the room, work together to slide the lid off their cage and escape. In a separate mouse room down the hall, two of the students break off from the group and free mice from their cages. The security guards working on Saturday are oblivious, drinking beer and watching football on the security monitors.
Ronald, an overlooked, disgruntled, intellectual explains how new strains of mice are created in the embryo transfer room and Jason, the handsome mouse communications researcher, explains how mice communicate through high pitched sounds that are imperceptible to the human ear. After the group leaves, Jason flirts with Rachel and shows her how he has rigged his cell phone to work as a mouse communication device. They hear a loud thud in the room next door. A large ceiling fan has fallen and beheaded Peter, the brain researcher. The mice have escaped.
Rachel tries to call security but the mice have chewed all of the wires and the two students have tied up the guards. After the students leave, thousands of mice come out and chew the guards to death. In the break room, a group of students from the AFO, Animal Freedom Organization take over.
As the mice escape they become vengeful, killing the researchers, workers, students, as well as the AFO, mimicking the ways their brothers had died. One goes by eye bleeding, another by autoclave, another by cage wash, and another by the removing of her uterus. Rachel and Jason try to save the other workers and students and escape but the facility is on automatic lockdown. Ronald has been injecting the mice with human DNA giving them human intelligence and emotions. The mice begin worshiping Ronald like a god and he begins helping them with the killing. The Doctor and the vet tech students are locked in a room by the AFO and gassed to death by the mice. Just as Rachel and Jason begin to bond, he is killed in a fight with Ronald. Ronald and the mice try to kill Rachel by injecting her with multiple syringes but she figures out how to communicate with the mice to save her and kill Ronald. The mice form groups by color and type and fight amongst themselves. Rachel rigs the oxygen piping system to blow up the entire facility to keep the mice from the general population.
