Coronapocalypse Now: 7 Movies to Watch While Quarantined
What to watch while you wait.
3.) Dawn of the Dead(1978)
This second film in George A. Romero’s The Dead series (later remade in 2004), primarily takes place in a Pittsburgh-area shopping mall where zombies have taken over. While the coronavirus doesn’t turn people into zombies (that we know of), it sure has some people behaving that way.
Contagion is a movie that was literally based on real-life pandemics such as SARS in 2003 and the flu in 2009. In the film, a deadly virus is spreading across the globe while scientists race to find a vaccine and the general population goes nuts accordingly. Sound familiar?
