Synopsis:
After an errant satellite crashes to earth near a remote New Mexico village, the recovery team discovers that almost everyone in the town are victims of a horrible death, with the mysterious exception of an infant and an old homeless man. The survivors are brought to a state-of-the-art laboratory descending five stories beneath the ground where the puzzled scientists race against time to determine the nature of the deadly microbe before it wreaks worldwide havoc. A trailblazer in the areas of special effects and inventive sets, 'The Andromeda Strain' is based on Michael Crichton's best-selling novel that created national paranoia for its topical relevance to the first moon landing.

An Immersive & Gripping Masterwork of Cinema - The Andromeda Strain review by JE

Spoiler Alert
18/06/2020

A Drama leaning towards Science Fiction that i found totally compelling, especially to view with the big bad viral issue, or crisis of confusion going on in 2020.

It's such a well thought out plot with much to it, like the top secret multi layered underground facility with it's many procedures & protocols, established for viral containment, with a virus from out of this World.

It was surely cutting edge upon release in 1971, and still is in it's own way.

It's also in excellent quality on Blu-ray.

Highly Recommended.
