HellraisingÂ screenwriter Ray Spass has one last chance to restore himself to former glory as he struggles to write a new studio tent-pole movie,Â Annihilator. The film centers around the adventures of Max Nomax, aÂ sci-fi anti-heroÂ caught in an epic struggle against the authoritarianÂ artificial life form Vada and it's chief assassin, Jet Makro.
But when Max Nomax appears in real-life, Ray thinks it's a side effect of the brain tumor he was recently diagnosed with. Despite all logic, Nomax is real, having escaped from an impossible prison with no memory. Â Ray's tumor isÂ the key-it containsÂ allÂ Nomax's adventures, downloaded into Ray's head before Nomax escaped.Â Ray needs to finish his screenplay in order to get the information out of his head and shrink the tumor. Nomax needsÂ RayÂ to finish hisÂ screenplay so he can remember who he is, what ultimate crime he has committed,Â how to defeat Vada andÂ save the universe from annihilation - if the unstoppableÂ Jet Makro doesn't reach Nomax and RayÂ first.
