Here's a synopsis for Plane Dead from Imageworks Entertainment International's website: "'Plane Dead' is a special effects-packed sci-fi/horror/action thriller about a routine flight from LA to Paris on which a renegade scientist, on the run from the CIA, has smuggled a secret coffin containing the body of a scientist infected with a deadly genetically-engineered virus.
The 747 jumbo jet collides with two massive thunderstorms at once, which drops it into the eye of an inescapable storm. The non-stop turbulence triggers the release of the infected 'flesh eating' scientist from the cargo hold.
A life-and-death battle ensues as the virus turns the unsuspecting passengers into 'the undead', and the terrified uninfected passengers try to survive the flight they wish they missed.
Now, no government will allow the 'infected' 747 jumbo jet to land. Stranded in the air, the passengers have no place to hide from their ravenous tormentors....
Flying the deadly skies...."
