Description: The Andromeda Strain is a deadly extraterrestrial virus. It is brought to Earth when a research satellite crashes near a tiny Arizona town. Everyone in the community dies within days, except for a baby and an insulated drunkard.

The film is based on a novel by Michael Crichton.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
