The moment I realized how serious the coronavirus pandemic was, I went ahead and searched “pandemic movies” and proceeded to watch almost all of them. Contagion, Bird Box, Cabin Fever. I couldn’t stop, and I don’t know why. Maybe these epidemic movies are making what’s actually happening in real life seem less scary. Perhaps the coronavirus has just unleashed this obsession I have with the apocalypse. Either way, my queue is filled to the brim with pandemic movies.
