I still haven't been able to watch Contagion during this apocalypse, now your scaring me with the Birds!
I watched it a couple of months ago. It was just *okay*. I thought there were a lot of missed opportunities. Also, Soderburgh's disjointed style annoyed me.
The 79 Best Pandemic Movies to Binge in Quarantine
Whilst they're not all about pandemics per se, most are in the mass infection + death and destruction category.
For me, The Andromeda Strain is still the best flick hands down in this category. Then some of the classics like The Omega Man, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and the newer Train to Busan .
A really good one not on that list is The Satan Bug....
"A germ warfare lab has had an accident. The first theory is that one of the nasty germs has gotten free and killed several scientists. The big fear is that a more virulent strain, named The Satan Bug because all life can be killed off by it should it escape, may have been stolen."
Edit: New sci-fi TV series from Ridley Scott coming in Sept. - Raised by Wolves
How on Earth did they miss John Carpenter's The Thing??? Esp considering Wilford Brimley just passed.
Also, not Aliens? The entire colony was infected...
If Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends. Slava Ukraini!
