Storyline

An ambitious lab assistant carries out a forbidden experiment and accidentally creates a deadly bacteria which kills her and rapidly engulfs the city. The authorities order a curtain of secrecy and impose quarantine on all known contacts whilst embarking on a desperate search for a cure. Meanwhile one of the people in quarantine escapes and becomes the unwitting carrier of the disease. She spreads the plague wherever she goes and becomes a fugitive on the run eluding the police through subways and alleyways. In a gripping gripping built up of events, the full horror of the plague becomes public and the onslaught has to be stopped before all human life on Earth is destroyed. Written by Anonymous

plague has plaque
8 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

A low budget,murky filmed "thriller" A virus escapes from a compound and threatens to wipe out the entire population.It is spread by an escaped quarantined women who infects everyone she comes in contact with,air vents etc. The acting in this film is so bad that the best performance is by a Hertz rent-a car lady who does not speak but registers the most emotion-slight impatience waiting for the escaped lady to find her credit card,a smile when she finds it,and confusion when she comes back to the counter to find the lady has disappeared{she sees a police car pull up outside}.The fugitive lady smirks throughout the the film ,totally ignorant of what shes done. This film is in need of a panacea
