Virus [DVD] [1980]

  • SKU: 5201391
  • Release Date: 12/26/2000
  • Rating: PG
A double disaster film with both an American and a Japanese cast, Virus presents some pretty wild probabilities to viewers. First of all, a virus has been developed that gets loose and starts to destroy humanity on a grand scale. The only people who are remotely safe are a group of eight hundred men and eight women on Antarctica. Since the President of the United States warns them by radio communications not to accept anyone into their area who has been contaminated, the men and women are somewhat prepared. That does not mean they are ready to handle the crew of a Russian submarine that seeks refuge with them. The second disaster is nuclear, and part of the suspense lies in whether or not it will be ultimately averted -- and who, if any, will survive all this.

    This is the American TV version and not the more desirable Japan version. This one runs 108m ( not 155m). But this movie is good for those who like end of the world flicks.

    Not a film for the young generation. No CGI here. Just classic acting in a Japense Si-Fi film.
