Somewhere in England (possibly?)!
"Come on!" - FfS, give us some "hope" that things could get better, and thus cheer us up with some "more light-hearted" suggestions for films to watch! :rolleyes:

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

20 Virus Outbreak Movies, From ‘The Seventh Seal’ to ‘Contagion’
"Resident Evil" Series (2002-2017)
I did think about (nearly) all the zombie films but decided that they didn't have the principle of virus contagion (mmm, lovely word) at the front of the plot.

Laminas 1.2M fibre dish with an IBU, on a Clarke Tech USALS motor, covering 57E - 24.5W to an Octagon SX88. Displayed on a 20" Dyon LED TV.

Seperate 80 cm dish on 28E with a Humax Freesat for SWMBO.
Free Sat V8 meter. Sony Bravia 46" LCD, Sony BluRay and Home Cinema.

I'd recommend 'The Stand' but the version made for tv wasn't good at all. Far better to read the book...which is about a global flu pandemic that wipes out 99.4% of the world population. Nice to read when you're in lockdown...
