Outbreak (1995):

Do not be misled or disheartened by the age of the movie. A classic in its own right, the outbreak is a much more contained and sophisticated version of the contagion.

This movie drives on hope rather than the struggles of a pandemic and thus an excellent choice for those that can absorb only so much of melancholy.

The outbreak is a movie that has it all. It has the adrenaline rush of having to deal with a virus outbreak as well as the juicy parts of various conspiracy theories weaving in the background, a perfect match to the current situation.

Starring big names in the industry like Dustin Hoffman, Rene Russo, Morgan Freeman, you can watch this Movie on Netflix.

IMDB Rating: 6.6/10.

Train to Busan (2016):

A movie that not only contains fear but hope and love, this movie will leave you satisfied and optimistic though your face will suffer the tear marks that are sure to leave their trial.

IMDB Rating: 7.6/10.

Blindness (2008):

A different take on the pandemic situation resulted in this classic movie. Most outbreak movies deal with a virus resulting in a gory and frightening death. However, this movie depicts a virus rendering people blind.

A movie dealing with the human aspect of surviving a pandemic rather than the scientific and political part. This movie stands to be an eye-opener to those that are forgetting humanity.
