The Best Movies for Waiting Out the Covid Virus

Well, it’s official. I now officially know somebody who knows somebody who has a kid with the Covid Virus. I guess there really is an epidemic.

Since I know, at some point, I may be forced to lock my family inside our house for a week or two to avoid the virus, I have started to compile a list of things I might need. Included with that list of supplies is a shopping list of the best movies for waiting out the flu bug or just about any other disease that might pop up; both because they are entertaining and because they might teach you a lesson or two about dealing with a horrible disease. Best sites to watch movies online are listed in 123Movies Helper new guide.

The CinemaScope Cat: Outbreak (1995)

Outbreak (1995) – What better way to start off this list than with a movie about a potentially deadly disease brought in from another country? Hopefully we won’t see the need for entire cities to be fire bombed to contain the spread of this bug.

The Andromeda Strain (1971) – Let’s say, after some scientific research, we learn the Covid Virus is actually a virus that was brought to Earth by a meteor or crashed satellite. Then this is a good film to watch for advice on how the fight against something like that would be approached. There’s also a 2008 remake of the movie but I haven’t seen that one yet.

12 Monkeys': Why Terry Gilliam's Movie Is So Relevant Today

12 Monkeys (1995) – OK, I’ll admit this Bruce Willis movie does get a bit confusing at times; especially with the time travel that’s involved. But, the film does teach us we can survive a catastrophic disease outbreak simply by living underground for a few decades.

Dawn of the Dead (2004) – Let’s say the Covid Virus virus mutates and the people infected by it turn into flesh eating zombies. Well, then this is a good film to watch so you know how to kill those zombies and how to avoid the virus. The movie Day of the Dead (either the 1985 version or the 2008 version) would be a good substitute.

I Am Legend (2007)

I am Legend (2007) – My final movie is geared toward the worst-case scenario. Everyone turns into zombies and you find yourself all alone with only your dog as a companion. Take some advice from Will Smith; lock yourself up at night and be sure to ask that mannequin at the movie store out on a date before it’s too late.
