Disaster Looms Large in Contagion
- Sunday, September 11, 2011
- Drugs/Alcohol: Social drinking.
- Language/Profanity: One f-bomb, plus a couple of instances of sh--, he—and dam-. Jesus’s name is misused once, and God’s name is also taken in vain.
- Sex/Nudity: Beth’s extramarital affair is mentioned a couple of times.
- Disturbing Imagery: A corpse’s head is cut open for an autopsy. We see the disturbing effects (including seizures) of the virus in adults and young children. There’s also a pervasive sense of dread throughout the movie as the camera zooms in on people touching each other.
Violence: As the virus becomes more widespread and grocery stores and airports close, we see people looting and resorting to violence in hopes of getting food (not to mention the vaccine once it becomes available).
