Who would have thought that in 2020 we would have to face a real virus pandemic that would paralyze humanity and the global economy. The outside world brings to mind the reality of many horrors. Streets, parks, forests and playgrounds are empty. Workplaces (apart from grocery stores and pharmacies) remain largely closed, and restraints have been introduced in the rest of the public space to reduce the rate of the spread of the coronavirus. This is a real challenge for our health service. In hospitals, doctors dressed in protective coveralls fight for the lives of new patients. The situation became extremely serious. The best way to save us from the virus is to keep contact with other people to a minimum and stay at home. Fear of disease, especially those unknown so far, it has always accompanied mankind. It often becomes the main axis for artistic creation, both film and literary. Today we want to introduce you to the Top 15 horror movies with a virus theme.
15. Battery (dir. Jeremy Gardner), 2012
Two baseball fans roam New England, deserted by the virus pandemic. During their journey, they encounter other survivors and hordes of living dead, but not everything goes as planned. Jeremy Gardner has an unusual approach to the heavily exploited, but – as it turns out – still quite fertile ground. The plot focuses on socio-existential threads. We will not experience the fierce, bloody struggle for survival, typical of films with a virus theme, but we certainly cannot complain about the schematic nature.
