Trivia

Dr. Murnau, the scientist who seals up himself and his team in BioTek's cafeteria, was never credited in the film, so nobody knows which actor played the role. It is possible that his actor didn't want to be recognized for working in the film, or that the cast information on him was left out by mistake and then lost. See more »

Biohazard
8 December 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Hal Barwood directed this thriller that stars Sam Waterston as Utah sheriff Cal Morse, who is forced to deal with the accidental contamination that has occurred at a research facility dealing with toxins. The military arrives to control things, but the families of the employees trapped inside the sealed-off containment area want answers, and threaten to batter down the doors to rescue them, which would be most unwise, as the released toxin has turned them into psychotic killers, except Cal's pregnant girlfriend Joanie(played by Kathleen Quinlan). Cal and a scientist(played by Jeffrey De Munn) must infiltrate the facility, to find a cure... Marginal film at least doesn't go overboard into Zombie clichés(thank goodness!), but despite the fine cast, it just misses, becoming a bit too predictable and unimaginative, though is certainly watchable enough for what it is.
