Plot

As the clientele are enjoying their drinks, a man covered in blood (identified onscreen as "Hero") enters through the door and warns them all of impending danger, but no one heeds his warning. To prove his point he exposes the head of a repulsive monster. Soon after this he is promptly pulled through a window and decapitated by one of the monsters following him, ironic as it was implied just before his death that his chances of survival were very high.

After the carnage, a woman ("Heroine") bursts through the door and reveals herself to be the recently deceased man's wife. After a brief sentimental moment between the wife and her late husband, they begin boarding up the windows in the bar. Despite their efforts, a young monster bursts through an uncovered window and begins incapacitating the people inside the bar. It attacks one of the women ("Harley Mom") severing her leg and it is initially assumed that she died from massive blood loss.

The monster disappears only for it to be found attempting to sexually penetrate one of the deer heads nailed to the wall. A shotgun blast promptly removes the deer head and monster from the wall and the monster then drops into a freezer which is sealed shut, trapping it inside.

Following this, the remaining windows are boarded up and the bar patrons are given a moment of peace. Trying to call for help, they learn that the only phone in the bar has been hit by a stray shotgun blast and has been rendered useless. After a short breather, one of the women ("Tuffy") suddenly realizes that her son is still upstairs and runs to get him.

Once she finds her child the group rejoices until the boy is pulled through a window and eaten by one of the monsters, leaving only his sneaker behind. Tuffy is now incapacitated by grief, and the monster then vomits a stream of slime at one of the group ("Beer Guy"). As the remaining people regroup downstairs, they realize that the slime has a decomposing effect and the victim is being slowly overcome by its effects.

The group kills the young monster in the refrigerator and hangs it outside. The monster's parents quickly have sex and produce two offspring in a matter of seconds, all of whom begin to attack the pub with renewed fury. Meanwhile, one of the women ("Honey Pie") begins washing off the blood and has to take off her clothes, much to the amusement of the others. The patrons regroup and enact various attempts to escape or drive off the monsters, all of which lead to more casualties, including the accidental death of the Heroine at the hands of the character aptly nicknamed "Bozo". Driven by her rage over the death of her child, Tuffy aggressively takes charge of the remaining survivors, which results in the audience seeing her nickname change from "Tuffy" to "Heroine 2". "Honey Pie" successfully makes it to a truck, giving the other characters brief cause for hope (until they realize she's speeding off by herself).

After many attacks and ultimately, a fight to the death between the last remaining humans and monsters, only four people survive the ordeal. One person ("Grandma") seems to survive but in the last second is seen being attacked by one of the remaining monsters.
