Michael Parks and Charles McGraw
7 March 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Diagnosis:Danger" begins with a dying musician falling out of a fast moving vehicle on the freeway, who was found to have died before falling, a victim of the deadly contagion anthrax, which takes 24 hours to kill. Unbeknownst to the authorities, left behind at the scene was the bongo drum responsible, purchased in Mexico from a street peddler, which is discovered by a sanitation worker who later turns up the second victim, after losing the drum to a trio of delinquents who become the final link. Michael Parks plays the young doctor who occasionally clashes with his superior (Charles McGraw), who does things by the book, through the proper channels, all the while trying to avert a panic. Also featuring Stefan Gierasch, Helen Westcott, and Celia Lovsky.
