Hollywood movies featuring “deadly viruses” on the loose

by Jon Rappoport

Wikipedia has a page listing “films about viral outbreaks.” I count 134 titles. Obviously, the theme has legs.

A few of the more famous movies: I am Legend; The Omega Man; The Andromeda Strain; Outbreak; Maze Runner: The Death Cure; Resident Evil: Apocalypse; Contagion.

My overall review: ridiculous plots; fear porn; softens up the public to accept the notion of pandemics.

Manufacturing 134 movies on the same subject, you can sell almost anything. Zombies, toasters, alarm clocks that have long noses, golf balls from Mars, cave women with flawless teeth and perfect makeup and salon-sculptured hair and carefully engineered cleavage.

But in this case, it’s viruses.

At rwjf.org, there’s an interesting interview with Scott Burns, who wrote the screenplay for the 2011 film, Contagion, and the technical consultant on the project, Dr. Ian Lipkin, director of the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University. Here are excerpts:

Scott Burns: “Obviously I worked with Ian, and early on I also met Dr. Larry Brilliant, who was very helpful [and certainly brilliant]. I had seen Larry’s TED talk where he showed the Malthusian charge through the world the virus would have. I also worked with Laurie Garrett on the movie, because she had written this book, The Coming Plague, which was very, very useful to me in sort of teasing out how these things have a medical component, but they also have a social justice component and a political component and all sorts of interesting aspects of human behavior.”

Dr. Ian Lipkin: “I started very early with Scott. There were a lot of people who contributed—CDC, WHO and others… Scott would bounce ideas off of me and others in his ‘brain trust’ and most of the time we were in accord. My role grew dramatically over the course of production. It began with just a consultation, and then I rapidly moved into helping the set designer in designing the virus, and we had a few days where we had actors come to the lab and spend some time working at the bench, learning how to pipette and look through microscopes and get into gowns and such. And even at the very end, I was working with the sound engineer, recording sound for the movie—lab background and that sort of thing. I did a lot of traveling with the crew. It was like a circus.”

“We settled on that virus [a paramyxovirus] within the first half an hour with Laurie and Scott and I, high above Columbus Circle in New York. We threw out a number of possibilities to Scott and he batted them down, and then one came to mind that struck me as the perfect choice, simply because there had been some reports earlier suggesting this virus, which wasn’t readily transmissible, had become readily transmissible to humans—that was Nipah. It also gave Scott and the director and actors an opportunity to do more than just cough and die. They could develop seizures, they could have hallucinations—all sorts of things that were much more interesting than a standard respiratory disease. We settled on that really within the first thirty minutes, and then Scott went back, thought about it and decided it was a good way to run. It doesn’t take much fuel for him to run quite a distance.”

Turns out that designing a movie about a pandemic is pretty much the same sort of project as designing a fake COVID pandemic in the world.

You pick out a story about a virus, give it an authentic feel, embroider it, and sell it.

People buy it.

In the interest of balance and fairness, I’ve written a few notes for a screenplay that would take a different approach:

In New York, the body of a dead virologist floats to the surface of the East River.

After a brief round of speculation that he might have perished from a mysterious viral infection, the coroner announces the cause of death was three gunshot wounds to the head.

A lone NYPD detective (divorced, alcoholic, disparaged by fellow officers, heroic) discovers the dead virologist’s notebook inside the freezer in the virologist’s apartment.

He thaws it out and reads this: “The coronavirus has never been isolated. It’s a fake. They’re selling a fairy tale about a virus.”

Two days later, a beautiful woman doctor (with engineered cleavage) from the CDC shows up at the detective’s apartment. Somehow she knows the cop has found the virologist’s notebook.

They talk. The mutual attraction should be immediately evident. If not, the brief cuts of sex they’re having on the floor provide sufficient evidence for the audience.

Two days later, the beautiful CDC doctor disappears.

The police detective is warned (anonymous phone message) to stay away from the case of the dead virologist.

Hey, it’s a B movie. Low budget. Could shoot the whole thing over a weekend in Manhattan.

But we need some kind of twist.

So it turns out the detective, the dead virologist, and the beautiful woman doctor from the CDC are just story ideas in the mind of a screenwriter, who, in the movie, is pitching the project to producers in an office high above Columbus Circle.

He’s pitching a movie that exposes a fake virus and a fake pandemic.

But wait. There’s more. In a mind-bending revelation, we learn that the screenwriter and the producers are secret agents from a distant planet called PROPAGANDA.

They’ve come to Earth to promote a fake pandemic…but a conflict has developed among them. The screenwriter has decided he wants to blow the whistle on his bosses from PROPAGANDA, and the producers want to carry out their mission to sell the people of Earth fake COVID-19, as if it were real.

The movie is basically an extended conversation about fake vs. real, virus vs. no virus, pandemic vs. hoax.

As the screenwriter earnestly pitches his film, his ideas will come to life, briefly, on the screen: there’s enough cleavage, sex, and murder to satisfy the Hollywood code.

Will the agents from the planet PROPAGANDA succeed in selling Earth the notion that COVID is real? Or will the heroic defector, the screenwriter, succeed in foiling the whole operation?

Stay tuned…

The 134 Hollywood movies about outbreaks of viruses aren’t only programming audiences. They’re instruction manuals for planners who launch fake pandemics.

Definition of “fake pandemic”: a movie that is happening in the world, not on a screen, in which the suffering and the pain are REAL—but are not the result of a virus. For further reference, see “lockdowns, mask mandates, business bankruptcies, suicides, vaccine damage, police state, and true believers (e.g., deranged hostile masked vegan Whole Foods shoppers, so-called science bloggers living in mommy’s basement, etc.).”

Definition of “virus”: any presumed particle that has never been isolated.

Definition of “virologist”: any person on the payroll of Bill Gates or entities Gates funds.

Alternate definition of “fake pandemic”: any medical event involving large numbers of people that never ends. For further reference, see “keep wearing two masks after being vaccinated.”

Immortal quotes from Hollywood virus-movies:

Outbreak, Dustin Hoffman—“I’ll say it one last time. These [infected] people that you’re going to bomb are not the enemy. We can kill the virus without killing these people. I swear on my soul that the President does not have the facts. He doesn’t know we have a working serum [antidote].”

Contagion, Jennifer Ehle—“Somewhere in the world, the wrong pig met up with the wrong bat.”

I Am Legend, Will Smith— “Blood tests confirm that I am immune to both the airborne and contact strains…Vaccine trials continue, I’m still unable to transfer my immunity to infected hosts. The Krippen Virus is… elegant…Hmm, a behavioral note, um, an infected male exposed himself to sunlight today. Now, it’s possible decreased brain function or the growing scarcity of food is causing them to…ignore their basic survival instincts. Social de-evolution appears complete. Typical human behavior is now entirely absent.”

Would you buy a used car from these people?

    No I wouldn’t buy a used car from these people. Though I am in the market.

    You write like a great lead guitar player. Somber, then Im laughing, then Im taken on a fun cruise.

    What another great article.

    • Opie Poik says:

      Too many people are buying a used ruse from these guys, though. Without kicking the tires.

      • Sean says:

        I was getting some groceries today. And the bar code on the broccoli was crumbled in in the plastic so the teller said do you mind if I tear it open. I said go right ahead. Im not afraid of germs at all. She looked up at me and said, oh I see you dont wear a mask. Nope. She asked about vaccines and I said yes I got them when I was a kid. But I know people that never got them and they never get sick or get diseases. I want to be more like them. Have a good day I said.

    • Marilyn Shepherd says:

      For the last year I have had this suspicion they asked Robin Cook to wtite a script for us all to live in.

      • viper says:

        when this whole covid crap started, I watched Contagion just for the hell of it….I thought oh crap…this is exactly what they’re going to do to scare the crap out of people….here we are ayear later ,,,face diapers, fake vaccines….fake news….fake pandemic…and now introducing covid ID….mmmmmm

  2. Saw most of the mentioned movies and noticed immediately the similarity with our current situation. Are politicians and the medical mafia getting their agenda/script from Hollywood as NASA got from Star Trek? Hmmm.

    • Sean says:

      Even V For Vendetta was very similar. They were doing shots on people. And when V went to square up with the lady doctor that headed the program, she stated something, eerie like, these subjects disgust me, they never look me in the eye. If they only knew the great role they were providing. Well something like that. I will have to go re watch. But it was showing the thinking behind such unempathetic people.

    • viper says:

      ya…and now they’re trying to tell us there’s a dune buggy on Mars….like they landed on the moon in 1969….give me a break

  3. Paul says:

    …cave women
    with flawless teeth
    and perfect makeup
    and salon-sculptured hair
    and carefully engineered cleavage.”

    Jon! That movie was fantastic.

    • Tim_2A says:

      Yep, Barbara Bach, in “Caveman,” which had some football player in it, too.

      Okay, I’ll say it: The ‘cure’ for ALL these foolish dinosaur ‘thinkers’ is ‘pre-historic’ “Mary-Jane,” alright?

      Problem solved.

    • george says:

      flawless teeth is to be expected. also perfect body. there is no illness in an untouched forest no sick plants or animals.

  4. marlene says:

    It made me sick (“…softens up the public to accept the notion of pandemics”); it made me laugh (“I’ve written a few notes for a screenplay that would take a different approach(; it made me angry (Would you buy a used car from these people?). All in all, this article is great and Jon’s “approach” is another virus movie in the making.

  5. Low Voltage says:

    1) The Hollywood aspect of the COVID drama is one of its biggest selling points. People get to feel like their in movie.

    2) If anyone remembers Andromeda Strain, a good portion of the movie was dedicated to discovering why two people survived the virus while the others died immediately. The only explanation as to why the most common symptom of COVID is perfect health was that people “people with type O or Rh−negative blood MAY be at SLIGHTLY lower risk from the new coronavirus.”

    • Low Voltage says:

      Oops. 1) The Hollywood aspect of the COVID drama is one of its biggest selling points. People get to feel like they’re in a movie.

      • Tim_2A says:

        How about if ‘they’re’ ‘there,’ in ‘their’ movie?

        What a thought, eh?

        It ALSO means that ‘they’re’ not ‘ANY-where,’ and THEY DON’T EVEN HAVE A CARE.

        -Distracting movies.
        -Oft times, they’re super groovy!
        -It’s JUST the “FLU-vy!”

        -FURIOUS EX-sheep.
        -Awakened, from slumbers deep.
        -‘Un-plugged,’ no more sleep!

      • Marilyn Shepherd says:

        Some TV producers are milking it to the max, makes it hard watch stupidity like All Rise, Bull, Station 19 and others.

    • Unreformer says:

      their in the movie
      they’re in the movie

      Why? God? Why?

    The Pandemic Thriller Movie “Songbird” Will Be Pure Predictive Programming
    Taking place in 2024, the upcoming movie “Songbird” is about a mutated COVID-23, massive quarantine camps, and a high-tech police state that uses smartphones to control people. Can we still call this “entertainment”? https://vigilantcitizen.com/moviesandtv/the-pandemic-thriller-moviesongbird-will-be-pure-predicting-programming/

  7. Paul says:

    All kidding aside, I love what you’ve written, in toto.

    “In the interest of

    I’ve written a few notes
    for a screenplay

    a different approach:”

    I’ve been waiting for this.

    Be as it may, the silver screen, could prove an enchanting classroom. Entertaining & all.

    […at film start, before any dialogue, this small statement appears on the screen]

    This Production,
    is based on True Facts…


  8. Haniel Adhar says:

    The funny part about all of this is that a vitamin C tablet would have cured each and every single one of those fake viruses in those movies. Hahaha

    It’s hard to be entertained these days…

  9. Janet Vignola says:

    Frighteningly true, amusing, and heartbreaking at the same time. I fully recognize that we (humans on earth)are in this maze of deluded BS beyond our comprehension – although few do understand it’s all propaganda (thank God). But unfortunately we have only a few to share the understanding. So grateful for your writing, Jon.

  10. Tim says:

    Yeah, basically when we’re watching movies, to really get into it, one must suspend disbelief to some degree, otherwise it’s obvious we’re just looking and hearing something that’s fake, not real.

    If we insist that what we’re witnessing is fake and unreal constantly, the movie won’t work the way it was intended. So, it’s attempting programing and conditioning the mind for a time that such and such a thing is possible, within the realm of possibility, kind of like latent hypnosis…
    There’s light flicker involved too that can induce a trance state and one becomes open to hypnotic suggestion. With possible triggers later.

    Also, all the violence, horror, criminal, insanity kinds of films(and books) are programing and conditioning the mind, by associating and deriving pleasure from that kind of story and imagery, it’s like telling the mind; “I like this, so much, I’d like to experience it…”
    It also desensitizes people and they assume it’s “just a part of life”.

    It’s ALL mind-fucking exploitation, to co-opt our life and “reality creation” to give us experience and “evidence” that the Truth isn’t true, and that the unreal is real.

    Bizarro World. EgoMatrix.
    Some people in the industry(and everywhere) can and do operate in service to The Truth, and the ego doesn’t really know or comprehend how The Truth operates, so helpful things do get through, the ego just tries to corrupt, distract, hijack, or copy in a self-serving way=anti-Spirit.

    The Matrix is a blatant description of what is going on with this world, so is They Live, and quite a few others that are disclosing how the ego=antiChrist is taken on a seeming life of it’s own and seeks to imprison it’s host in a world(miscreation) of it’s making.

    How can those movies have been made and shown? Because the ego is not all-powerful, and it really doesn’t know shit. It is so limited and predictable. It want’s us, like it.
    Fail, in The End. That’s already happened in Eternity.

    This world is a dream of lies, the idea is to connect with The Divine?(The Truth) and become lucid, help for a time, then exit.

    • stephen langley says:

      Thank you, Tim ! A man after my own heart !!! So few, now, understand/speak to the spiritual psychological cause of how this illusion, both God’s “Grand Ilusion” (“Maya”) and the black magician’s human engineered one (the “Matrix”) works: by applealing to the limited ego, i.e. individuated seperative existence/consciousness… could not agree more: limited ego consciousness = seperative existence = “anti-Christ”; no limited (individuated) ego consciousness = non-seperative Existence = Christ Consciousness… innate within us all. My understanding (not my current experience of Reality !) of this, as you have framed it is from the teachings of Avatar Meher Baba (1894-1969) whom many (including me) take to be the Christ of our current age. As Meher conveyed: “Every moment has a wali (saint) and every age an Avatar (Christ).” Really speaking I would not be surprised if your comments were based in his Life and teachings… but if not, I’m sure you would find them most validating… and illuminating, viz., your comments… yours were refreshing and validating for me hearing another express those, despite where yours originate… so, thank you ! …also, loved your closing statement, vis-a-vis “helping… then exiting” …a reference to the “Spiritual Hierarchy” that Meher Baba desribed in assisting one and all to overcome our ego-mind, help others to do same… after that ??? …the unlimited infinite journey continues ??!!… but that really is “beyond imagination and conception” by the finite/limited human ego mind… Cheers !

      • Andy says:

        Indeed Tim’s comment is extremely helpful, and to me is true in my experience. I’ve recorded Tim’s comment for reference/posterity. Many Thanks, Tim.

  11. Interesting…always interesting.

    Scott Burns was originally in the advertising business — finding ways to sell you shit you don’t need.
    He was the fella that thought up “Got Milk!” for the diary industry and man have they peddled miles and miles on that little baby.

    Its all in the symbols and symbol writers and creators. Get a symbol deep enough into someone’s mind and they will do it forever…
    As we can see with the cross and Christianity. And the NIKE slash…

    Now he (Scott) worked for Goodby, Silverstein & Partners (GPS) and they got us hung on Budweiser sewer water that stuff they call beer by using Clydesdales and frogs to peddle it to us in their commercials.

    GPS, if not for the likes of Scott Burns where paid huge money to join one of the top four advertising groups — and there is only four advertising groups in the world.
    Omnicom Group which fetches some $15 Billion a year worldwide and work in such things as medical marketing and strategic planning and buying and some secret stuff, as well as the diary industry and so forth.

    A merger of Omnicom and Number #3 was called off as this would have made three total advertising groups in the world with the new merger putting them in #1 position with some $40 Billion worldwide annually. It had to do with intelligence and the like…

    They have worked with spooks and spook agencies and as we know Hollywood is run by the CIA, laundering their drug money and laundering billions in Chinese money for a fee and it is really just a ‘Reality Manufacturing Machine’ working 24/7/365.

    So its not a wonder that Scott, ending up in Hollywood writing script for propaganda movies is no surprise, his commercials won awards and sold serious product and took GPS to the top. He knows about symbols, he’s one of those dark artists.

    If your gonna sell a pandemic, then the marketing has to be top drawer, none of this “He said she says.”, you need some fucking great copy, no “jingle bells jingle bells”. We’re talking about peddling a big lie, the biggest lie ever, the one that eat the last lie.

    “Contagion” is making some spectacular new money since the lockdowns as it has become number seven of the most popular downloads on of 2020 on iTunes.

    I find that interesting that Scott gets a little kick back from his original groundwork for what we see presently.

    Scott Burns:
    “Every scientist who I spoke to when I worked on the movie said that exact same thing to me: It’s not a matter of “if,” it’s a matter of “when.” You can decide that most of the time, firemen are just sitting around. But it’s very hard to start a fire department once your house is on fire. And so the notion that we’re going to cut these things and we’ll just try to rebuild them when we need them is foolish and dangerous. I was very aware that our Department of Homeland Security had a pandemic team standing by because this is a real threat.”

    Thanks Scott ya fuckin wanker, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits and give you thirteen different mutations of MERS.

    • stephen langley says:

      Wow… great info… yepo all the PR firms, disengenuous “ad men” all originated with Edward Bernays’s “Propaganda”… illusionists every damned one !

  12. Mike Fuller says:

    Yes, without even reading all of your article, I see it continues. The Covid theme has permeated the television networks more and more, especially medical shows like New Amsterdam. At first, I think they probably were concerned with creating more fear, so they tread lightly. Now, more and more I see they are incorporating the pandemic, the message of fear, and “wear your mask” or we’re all going to die. They also are hammering the message, “thank God for the vaccine, let’s all get one or two or three. Yippee!” More propaganda!

    • stephen langley says:

      Michael Todd, who alleged he was raised in a satanic family, stated emphatically that anyone successful “…on tv is a witch” meaning black magik illusionists… and all the horrific implications of satanic ritual abuse, human trafficking etc. He blew the whistle loudly for awhile and suddenly disappeared… one can see why… viz so many like him are also “disappeared” regularly.

  13. Noneoftheabove says:

    Dear Jon, thank you for this: “In the interest of balance and fairness, I’ve written a few notes for a screenplay that would take a different approach:

    “In New York, the body of a dead virologist floats to the surface of the East River.

    “After a brief round of speculation that he might have perished from a mysterious viral infection, the coroner announces the cause of death was three gunshot wounds to the head.”

    Aren’t all these movies taking their cue from the Old Testament story of liberation of the Jews from Egypt via plagues and the Angel of Death killing first born Egyptian children and children of those without the appropriate mark above the household door?

    Now we have Angel of Death “vaccines” and ID “passports”…

    We humans are Creatures of the Myths.

  14. Eluard says:

    GOING TO REPORT you to the Viral Screenwriters of America. They will attempt then to write you out of the picture. They will claim you succumbed to a rare digital form of Viral Incredulitis. Your work, in other words, went so far over their heads, it caused a “virtual” decapitation.

      If you want proof they are going after the kids, all you have to do is look at how many parents are abusing their children by obstructing their breathing.

  16. stephen langley says:

    Much to be said about how the psychpathacracy casts its spells… great comments by all above. The only thing I can add is that their black majik applies to every aspect of their system, i.e., our daily externalized lives… and they do so by manipulating our sub-conscious minds. Nevertheless, I recommend the following that lays it all out really well:


  17. Rynall Brannock says:

    Orson Wells would be in his element if he were alive today. Wait! He is alive! Hiding out as a resurrected, fiendish and poisonous mud puppy of the Swamp – a movie mogul for that amorphous heap of Washington slime oozing and creating Golem-like creatures of human form invariably employed by the CDC, WHO and associated gunge to manufacture, promote and inject death-dealing jabs into the lemmings of the world. The last twelve months have had the eerie feel of a surreal movie and by the end of summer, I for one, anticipate deadly and real consequences of this untested treatment that did for all the tested animals. Geert Vanden Boosche, a strong promoter of vaccines has recently – and convincingly announced his doomsday fears. How any rational human being cannot see this is all a deliberately engineered program from the get-go is beyond me. Anyway, Jon keep up the good work – it is appreciated! Deeply so!

  18. Roundball Shaman says:

    “Hollywood movies featuring ‘deadly viruses’ on the loose”

    In the 1950s it was all the rage to create lots of scary movies about mutant bugs that somehow got real big and wreaked havoc upon the World’s population. And at the end, the Heroic Authorities would defeat the giant mutant and save the World and “Keep Us Safe!”

    In the 2020s it is the rage to create lots of fear and panic about alleged tiny, tiny mutant bugs that wreak havoc upon the World’s population. And as always… it’s the Heroic Authorities who will defeat the alleged tiny mutants and once again save the World and “Keep Us Safe!” with the help of their sacred texts, “The Science! The Science!” and the Most Holy Doctor Daddy-Figure.

    “Would you buy a used car from these people?”

    Not likely. But maybe, from a 1950s big mutant bug that’s been hiding out all these years and looking now to make a career change and improve the public’s car-buying experience.

    I laughed. I cried. I think it has bones but they’ll have to release it with a *language, substance, gore, sex, smoking* warning.

  22. JBW says:

    I wouldn’t classify Michael Crichton’s The Andromeda Strain as fear porn. The story came out about the time Fred Hoyle was talking about panspermia and virulent organic forms that could have unknown effects on humans/animals.

    The Black Death has been shown to be of this origin;
    “According to the late Sir Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe of the University of Wales at Cardiff, viruses can be distributed throughout space by dust in the debris stream of comets. Then as Earth passes though the stream, the dust and viruses load our atmosphere, where they can stay suspended for years until gravity pulls them down. They compare numerous plagues throughout our history which coincide with cometary bodies in our skies. These researchers are certain that germs causing plagues and epidemics come from space.” The Dot Connector Magazine, issue 13, volume 1
    –Gabriela Segura, M.D

    This is decidely a very different kind of problem than all the Hollywood Fear Porn. Crichton’s point of the story was pointing out how such a thing could happen again, and man would be in no better position to prevent a similar result.

  23. Lewis Papier says:

    Here is my review of Contagion on IMDB which I posted way back in 2011. I knew what fake pandemics were even way back then.

    For Soderbergh, creators of vaccines are new worldwide saviors!

    Turfseer 4 October 2011
    Warning: Spoilers

    In his new pseudo-documentary, Contagion, Steven Soderbergh has endorsed the idea that modern medicine has taken the place of world religion and elevated the physicians and research scientists to the role of high priests. Soderbergh is in perfect sync with fear-mongering health organizations such as the CDC, who manufacture health epidemics in order to peddle vaccines to an unsuspecting public, who have gladly given up any sense of individual responsibility for taking care of their own health. The ‘Contagion’ is an event that government health bureaucrats probably unconsciously wish for; after all, such an event would confirm all their dire predictions and place them in a position of complete power and control. Victims in the ‘Contagion’ must undergo suffering akin to Christ on the cross. Their rite of ‘baptism’ is through the modern vaccine, where their ‘demons’ are exorcised and they end up owing a life-time debt to the medical and research establishment for supposedly saving their life.

    Unfortunately for modern medicine, contagions as depicted in Soderbergh’s film, are strictly a work of complete fiction. Invariably, every few years, the CDC, partnering with local health organizations, warn of crippling health pandemics, which can only be prevented by mass inoculations (leading to billions of dollars of profits by pharmaceutical companies). Take, for example, West Nile Virus, one of the latest health scares which was supposed to cause havoc throughout North America. Usually its small sample of victims turn out to be elderly people who already are suffering from a myriad of health problems. But of course the pundits of orthodox medicine conclude that all these peoples’ problems stem from a single source: a mosquito bite.

    In Soderbergh’s perverse world, alternative practitioners are the ‘heretics’ who must be suppressed. Jude Law’s blogger, Alan Krumweide, has the temerity to expose CDC head Ellis Cheever, who has given advance warning of the impending contagion crisis to family and friends so that they’re able to flee Chicago before a quarantine has been imposed. Soderbergh’s strategy is to temporarily have Krumweide take down the saintly Cheever a peg, in order to show that he’s ‘only human’. Later saintly Cheever, gives up his own precious vaccine to save the son of a janitor who works at CDC headquarters. The ‘fallen’ Cheever (also blamed for delays in the dissemination of an effective vaccine) is restored to the pantheon of saints after his self-sacrifice involving the janitor’s son. Meanwhile, Krumweide is exposed as a fraud, after peddling a homeopathic remedy as a cure (which he’s surreptitiously marketed to investors) and pretending as well that he’s been infected with the virus. Homeland Security partners with modern medicine, just as the Catholic church found their own government allies in bygone days, to take down anyone who dared to question their dogmatic belief systems. Soderbergh is smugly satisfied as the ‘evil’ blogger is taken away in handcuffs by ‘valiant’ government security agents!

    If the imperfect Dr. Cheever is ‘canonized’ at film’s end, there’s no need for Dr. Ally Hextall to have her reputation sullied at all. After all, it’s Dr. Hextall who identifies the characteristics of the MEV-1 virus , linking it to a genetic mix of bat and pig viruses. Hextall’s role here is way beyond a mere priest. She can be likened to a modern day Jesus, a veritable Savior, who miraculously discovers that elusive cure, a vaccine that immediately provides the immunity to the deadly contagion. At the conclusion of ‘Contagion’, we learn of the pseudo-science behind the MEV-1 virus’ origins. It’s simply a matter of a bat dropping part of an uneaten banana into a pig’s trough. The pig who eats the infected banana ends up in the kitchen of a Macao casino; and because the chef merely forgets to wash his hands, he somehow transmits the virus to Beth (Gwyneth Paltrow). On the other hand, it’s unclear why others, such as everyman Mitch Emhoff and his daughter Jory, are immune to the virus, despite close contact with initial victim Beth.

    If alternative practitioners are directly linked to the work of the devil, bureaucrats who seek to stymie the ‘godly’ work of vaccine researchers, run a close second. Dr. Mears (Kate Winslet) an ‘Epidemic Intelligence Officer’ is rebuffed by local bureaucrats who are reluctant to commit resources to handle the impending crisis. Worse are the officials who send a ransom of placebos following World Health Organization epidemiologist Orantes’s kidnapping by a Chinese epidemiologist after he attempts to save the remaining survivors in his own village who have no access to the ‘precious’ vaccines. Note more saintly self-sacrifice: Dr. Mears succumbs to the deadly contagion and Orantes nobly runs back to the village to warn them that the vaccines they’ve obtained, are bogus!

    In the 1950s, orthodox medicine elevated their first ‘miracle worker’ to the pantheon of modern day world saviors. That man’s name was Dr. Jonas Salk–creator of the polio vaccine. Now Soderbergh wants to outdo even Salk; his ‘Contagion’ can perhaps be seen as an allegory, likening the deadly plague to cancer itself. Soderbergh’s vaccine is so powerful, that it prevents the eradication of the human race.

    Ultimately, Soderbergh never questions the ‘gospel truth’ of modern orthodox medicine but always sticks to the ‘company line’. Instead he would do well to listen to Edda West who cogently sets the record straight in regards to that earlier ‘epidemic’ in her article, ‘Polio Perspectives’: “That the polio virus is the sole cause of polio is accepted by most people as gospel, and that the Salk and Sabin vaccines eradicated polio in the western world is etched into our collective consciousness as the major medical miracle of our time. But the history of polio and its vaccines is shrouded in a murky mist of politico/scientific manipulation, altered statistics, redefinition and reclassification of the disease, increased cases of vaccine induced paralytic polio, and monkey viruses transmitted by contaminated vaccines to millions of people worldwide.”

      “The ‘Contagion’ is an event that government health bureaucrats probably unconsciously wish for; after all, such an event would confirm all their dire predictions and place them in a position of complete power and control.”

      So YOU gave them the idea for this whole mess! Thanks a bunch!

      Just kidding, Lewis.
      That’s a great review. I saw the movie. Once, either on video or cable. Even though I didn’t have a glass of Kool-Aid while watching (I started questioning things after the ’09 Great Swine Flu/H1N1 hoax), i don’t recall picking more than the outer layer of the onion off.

      Well done sir!

    Indicators so many, orwell, huxley, cabal types even put in schools, people so asleep didn’t matter, walked into every part anyway. Supposed tv and movies, what for, dumbing, sleaze. violence, ‘slasher’ ‘walking dead’, or phony ‘sons anarchy’ so people sit watching, same time in real life smiley tyrants take the earth. The vyrus stuff more of same. Or phony animal shows pretend ‘save animals’ as corporations miltaries mass population destroy, mass extinctions, soon no animals.
    Was somewhere was a tv or whatever, was ‘guardians of universe on it, watched few minutes, sick, constant violence shaded as half cartoon graphics, then alternate smiley bs, used old songs to make seem nicy or cool, very calculated mind twisting.

    Bogus cartoons pushed phony ‘together’ so no identity or real connect, only ‘go along everyone’. Not real. Should have focused connect with real people only. Now will be food shortage, ignored population, and poison soil. Was one movie real on it’s face, religilous, bill mahr. Most ignored. Few that show dupe world, ‘they live’ was message, though a few throw ins don’t erase other mass brain twisting.
    Mind twisters owning followers.
    may make note –
    word follow is a taunt, fal low.

    What If there was no such thing as govermts, or medias, or no thieves or murderes because you would just tank them, no wars except if people were invading your territory, no mass chemicals on food, or corporation farms, or being told to stay in, or put a cover over your face, no street cameras everywhere, or being spied on all the time. Wonder why they don’t make a movie like that?

    The time loop of fake narratives continues….Thousands of years of flowery language(religions priest class) hypnotize people and now todays flowery language of science priests hypnotize people.

    around around it goes, when will it stop nobody knows
    cause everyone been fucked up by media flows

    I’ve been ruined for movie watching for some years now. Whenever I try to watch a movie, I never make it to the end because I become aware of all the tricks and the general phoniness of Hollywood fiction and acting. So it’s like I’m watching people make a pizza or repair a car. Actually, those videos would be more interesting because something gets accomplished. But in movies, you’ve got a team of people working very hard (they tell you at the beginning exactly who they are and what their job is) to get you to go along with a story. Isn’t that what happens in real life anyway?

    Nice plot…I’d say the cleavage bit will always top any virus as a selling point. No content necessary whatsoever, except as a means of suspense before the next round (of cleavage, that is). Timing is so important.

    The only “deadly virus” on the loose – whether real or fictitious – is the virus called Propaganda.

    I recommend ‘control factor’. it has 5.1 rating on imdb even if all comments are 8 or 10. That is how you find politically incorrect movies. Also if most comments give the movie rating of 1,2..5.. but general score is 8.5, you know it is a propaganda movie

  31. Terrific, Jon!

    What catches my eye is that the masked Whole Foods zombies are VEGANS — which might possibly be true, but as a 40-year vegan with most of my vegan friends staunchly on the side of refusing to comply with the masking/fear-porn nonsense, I must DISAGREE with the vegan word here!! As vegans, we are all about freedom and liberation for all beings – including human beings! No masks!! They destroy the spirit.

    Otherwise, thanks for the great essay and all your work!
