Coronapocalypse Now: 7 Movies to Watch While Quarantined

What to watch while you wait.
By Mike Asper


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.

Watch on YouTube (for free!)


4.) Contagion (2011)

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?

Watch on Amazon Prime or YouTube




5.) Outbreak (1995)

In Outbreak, a monkey infected with a deadly virus is smuggled into the US and chaos ensues. This movie raises the question of how far our leaders will go to control a pandemic.

Watch on Amazon Prime, Netflix, or YouTube
