The Best Virus Outbreak Movies to Watch Right Now

If you enjoy apocalyptic stories that highlight man's ability to survive dire situations, then you would love the following movie recommendations:

Contagion

Starring Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and other big-name Hollywood stars, Contagion begins with the discovery of a deadly virus following the death of Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow) and her son.

When the CDC fails to contain the virus, panic seizes the entire world – one small event translates into a global catastrophe. Contagion has a jaw-clenching plot with excellent acting and is a perfect foretelling of the COVID-19 pandemic era, as it was released over ten years ago.

Bird Box

If you love a combo of horror, science fiction, and breathtaking suspense, Bird Box delivers a perfect treat. Starring Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, and John Malkovich, the movie is about a woman embarking on a dangerous journey in search of a haven with her children after a mysterious force reduces the population to a scarce few. Knowing that they would die if they came face to face with this entity, they have no choice but to finish the journey blindfolded.

World War Z

When a deadly virus that turns humans into zombies breaks out, and chaos erupts across the globe, former UN employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) finds himself in a race against time as he investigates the virus while trying to ensure his family's safety. World War Z offers non-stop action and heroics and features stars like Mireille Enos as Karin Lane and Matthew Fox as Parajumper.

28 Days Later

In a post-apocalyptic world, 28 Days Later is the story of how a team of survivors who emerge from the havoc a mysterious virus has wrecked tries to deal with the situation and find whatever remains of their nation's security system.

Starring Cillian Murphy as Jim, Brendan Gleeson as Frank, and Naomie Harris as Selena, 28 Days Later captures the reality of how humans would react to a rage virus pandemic and the opportunistic nature of people in authority that fails to give way even when it feels like the world is ending.

Quarantine

You know trouble is brewing when a reporter, Angela (Jennifer Carpenter), and her cameraman, Scott (Steve Harris), are trapped in a building quarantined by the CDC. When the humans in the said building turn into zombies after being infected by a deadly virus, chaos erupts. If you enjoy watching horror thrillers, Quarantine will satisfy you with its dark scenes, gilt-edged suspense, and heart-shattering surprises.

I Am Legend

Sci-fi movies do a lot to show how humanity itself is the biggest threat to its survival, and I am Legend did justice to that theme. When a deadly manufactured virus wipes out the entire human population of New York, a lone survivor, Robert Neville (Will Smith), a scientist, tries to find a way to reverse the virus' effects using his blood, which seems immune to the threat. I am Legend also stars Willow Smith and Alice Braga.

The Girl With All The Gifts

Starring Sennia Nanua, Glenn Close, and Paddy Considine, The Girl With All The Gifts tells the story of a gifted young girl who helps carve a path to humankind's survival.

When one of the children immune to a mutant fungal disease enslaves the rest of the world by turning everyone into cannibalistic zombies, this girl leaves the safety of her special school behind to face a cruel and chaotic world. The Girl With All The Gifts is a fine blend of horror and touching scenes that could get you teary-eyed.

Cabin Fever

If you love tales of adventures gone wrong, then Cabin Fever would be a perfect watch for you. When a group of friends rent a cabin in the woods and kill a sickly man, they contract his disease and resort to drastic measures to ensure their survival. Eli Roth, Rider Strong, and Cerina Vincent, amongst others, star in this horror and dark comedy movie released in 2003.

28 Weeks Later

A sequel to the 2002 release 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later jumps forward six months after the rage virus has wiped out over half of the UK by turning them into mindless zombies.

The US Govt. has helped create a safe place in London for the survivors, but all their efforts go to waste when a virus carrier enters the city, and the chaos begins again. The movie stars Jeremy Renner, Imogen Poots, and the world-famous Idris Elba.

Pandemic (2016)

As with most virus movies, virus outbreaks almost always turn people into zombies. Pandemic is no different, as it starts when a mysterious virus plunges the world into pandemonium.

With zombies roaming the streets and the survivors trying to find a safe passage, an armed rescue team crashes the party, targeting the undead zombies. Some stars who delivered excellent performances in Pandemic include Alfie Allen, Rachel Nichols, and Mekhi Phifer.
