Contagion (movie review)

I just saw this the other day.

Now I’m afraid to go anywhere, touch anything, or even breathe in public. All of you need to stop touching your faces. Seriously. Just stop it.

The premise of the movie wasn’t original; the global population decimated by a new disease has been done before (loved it in 12 Monkeys). What made this different was the pacing, the editing style, and even the bent more towards documentary.

It was in some ways slow moving, yet quietly riveting. What was terrifying in it was the believability of the movie – it genuinely felt like it could happen. So in a subtle, yet powerful way, the film grabbed my attention.

Definitely worth checking out. Especially if you want to be afraid of contact with any other human being ever again.

I’m also not happy with pigs or bats, either.
