Dreadcentral.com has an article: "Top 10 Outbreak Movies." These are movies about outbreaks, disease and all out plague.
Number ten on their list is Stephen King's 1994 mini-series "The Stand." I LOVED this mini-series, sincei t was basically faithful to the book.
The article notes, "Sure, it’s a strange world where a Mick Garris film snags a spot on any top ten list, but this adaptation of one of Stephen King’s finest novels does offer some of the subgenre’s most effective and memorable setpieces. From the opening outbreak cued to Blue Oyster Cult’s "Don’t Fear the Reaper" to Larry Underwood’s suspenseful escape through the Lincoln Tunnel, this mid-90s miniseries may have fallen apart after the third hour, but this epic look at the end of the world remains an apocalypse worth enduring." http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/36143/top-10-outbreak-movies
I watched The Stand a couple weeks ago and noticed how it's starting to age. However, a wonderful thing about King ist hat he alwasy writes for the moment. It's not a far future plague, or historic fiction. That, by the way, is what I liked about the mini-series "V."
