Wolfgang Petersen’s Outbreak turns 20 this month, so we decided to pay tribute not only to the film, but its pandemic theme. Pandemics have been plaguing movies for decades, so we decided to take 10 of the strongest outbreak movies and break them down. Some of these pandemics are born out of science, others are biblical, and many are caused by the undead. Read on as we discuss the different types of pandemics, the seriousness of the threats, and, of course, the overall health of the movies themselves. Hazmat suits on!
