A rise of partially flesh and blood demonic creatures appears after government agents investigate increases in missing persons reports and gruesome murders. The creatures seek out women to breed with, to create a hybrid bloodline of flesh and blood demons, which will seek out to infest and destroy humanity. The Union of Everett's Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigates a surviving group of teens who had gone camping in a known local legend filled New Jersey State Forest south of Everett City, and claimed to have been attacked by dark colored misty creatures. After a failed federal investigation resulting in the deaths of several Department of the Paranormal agents and local police, the Union of Everett Air Force is ordered to form an elite task force, the Air [Force] Cryptzoological Interdiction Division (ACID), to investigate and exterminate the demonic presence.

Plot Summary

Following December 21, 2012's mythical doomsday coming and going without incident, a less obvious beginning of the Apocalypse is opened up as solar flares during the same time open a rift in the barriers that separate humanity and the gates of the afterlife, allowing demonic forces to intertwine with the human Earth.

Months later on April, during Spring Break, a group of teens on a camping party in the New Jersey State forest come under attack from large black demonic beings which kill the males and take the females. A lone survivor, 16 year old Amy Carey (Danielle Marelli), sparks a police investigation and search for the others, only to find bodies and come under attack themselves. After federal agents and Department of the Paranormal investigators are sent in to search for the missing police investigators, they too come under attack by a horde of the creatures.

In response to the killings in the New Jersey forest, the Department of Defense contracts the formation of an elite and classified special task force to eliminate the creatures with the Air Force, creating A.C.I.D., the Air Force Cryptzoological Interdiction Division, consisting of a squad of highly skilled soldiers from varying branches of the military. A.C.I.D., led by Colonel R.T. Ferguson of the Union of Everett Air Force (Gerard Butler), are deployed to the same New Jersey forest in search of the creatures with the mission to kill them and seize bodies for investigation.

A.C.I.D. heads into the New Jersey forest and discovers a region of it where a thick darkness exists to the point where sunlight is unable to light. A.C.I.D. comes across a cavern with dead bodies inside, including federal agents and police and engage dozens of the creatures. A.C.I.D. finds that the creatures are breeding with human women with the intent to create human/demon flesh and blood hybrids, which Major Jackson (DMX) compares with the Biblical Nephilim. A.C.I.D. exterminates the remaining creatures, torches the bodies and an extraction team takes three of the "Breeders" bodies.

While Air Force researchers at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base autopsy the bodies, A.C.I.D. agents Sergeant Dawn Scott (Christine Fletcher) and AFC Evan Dobbs (Tyler Labine) gather information regarding missing women in the Catskills of New York, under cover as FBI investigators. Amy Carey is met as Scott and Dobbs talk with the principal of a local high school where three girls had gone missing, offering to talk to them privately. Amy informs them about her experience in New Jersey, giving further knowledge about the Breeders.

While driving, it is called over the police radio that a group of hunters reported being attacked by a large creature and respond to a state game forest in the Catskills. Upon arriving by dusk, the police and EMS crews are found dead in a slaughter and demonic monstrous screaming coming from all around. Scott and Dobbs load up their armory from the trunk and force Amy to remain in the car while calling for A.C.I.D. to respond to another Breeder Hive. Scott and Dobbs hold off attacking Breeders as they begin to charge. Several minutes pass holding off the Breeders before Dobbs in downed severely injured and Amy and snatched by a Breeder and taken into the forest. Scott calls in for air support resulting in Everett City Air Force Base deploying an AC-130 Spectre gunship and Reaper drone. Scott goes into the forest after Amy to rescue her before the AC-130 is forced to bombard the Breeder Hive.

Scott engages several Breeders while entering caverns and tunnels in the hillside. While trying to locate Amy, the Reaper drone arrives above seeking targets for the AC-130 to strike. Lieutenant Colonel Johnny (Jason Richards) arrives by AH-6 Littlebird and runs into the forest to provide assistance after loading an injured Dobbs onto the helicopter. Johnny enters the cavern tunnels searching to join up with Scott and rescue Amy and extract. Johnny finds Scott holding off several Breeders at once and engages them all and assists Scott in recovering from injury and locating Amy, rescuing her from a group of Breeders and extracting. The AC-130 over head is forced to assist by firing on a horde of Breeders pursuing the three before having the all clear to fire on the Hive with 105mm shells. Scott, Johnny and Amy are extracted and land at Everett City Air Force Base.

With knowledge that Breeders exist in large amounts and in hives and are trying to reproduce and spawn, A.C.I.D. has a full time position as a classified military division.
