Synopsis Directed with clinical precision by Academy Award winner Robert Wise, this compelling account of the earth's first biological crisis is perhaps the most chillingly realistic science fiction thriller ever made. 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.
