In VIRUS (1980), a Japanese (English-language) apocalyptic movie, a germ is accidentally created that amplifies the effect of any other germ with which it comes into contact. The result is a pandemic that ends the world. It’s up to a group of scientists living in Antarctica, whose freezing temperatures render the virus inactive, to produce a cure and save humanity.
The movie is based on the novel of the same title by Sakyo Komatsu, which is on my reading list. It stars George Kennedy, Robert Vaughn, Chuck Connors, Olivia Hussey, Edward James Olmos, Ken Ogata, Glenn Ford and Sonny Chiba.
