I have not seen the movie, but the basic premise for the movie is not that Lyme is a "new" bacteria but that the spirochete was "tinkered with" by the government during experiments in biowarfare research...and it is the "tinkered with" version of Lyme that has become so difficult to eradicate.
I don't know if I totally agree with this, there are a lot of things about it that are difficult to prove for sure one way or the other.
People's immune systems used to be stronger in general, so it is difficult to say whether it is a bioweaponized version of Lyme we are dealing with, or a combination of a really smart bug and a poorly functioning immune system.
Just my $.02...
