While we certainly don’t take the threat of a pandemic lightly, we thought it might be useful to have an updated list of world-ending virus movies handy for when we’re all forced to remain indoors for a spell. As it turns out, there are quite a few episodic series and movies on this subject streaming on Netflix right now. For this list we are going to limit ourselves to just movies because who really wants to live this nightmare in real-life and across 10-hours of depressing content. Let’s get through this together; and for goodness sakes, please limit your public social interactions until this thing is better understood and (hopefully) under control.
