Contagion

by Mighty_Emperor | created - 11 Jun 2012 | updated - 2 months ago | Public

Contrasting with the films on my contagious violence list (and, beyond them, zombie movies), sometimes people don't turn into rampaging cannibals when they get a disease, sometimes a lot of people just get sick and die, messily. This is the list for those films, because sometimes it is fun to kick back and watch a film where someone bleeds to death from their ass.

Although the outbreak can be relatively limited, these often deal with pandemics and so grade into apocalyptic movies.

This isn't a complete survey (there are always more) but it does seem like there are more of these films recently, perhaps because of the concerns over SARS and the various flus (avian and swine). Hopefully, these cathartic excursions are the closest most of us get to such modern plagues.
