''Virus'' is a 1999 science fiction-horror film directed by visual effects artist John Bruno and starring JamieLeeCurtis, William Baldwin and Donald Sutherland. The film is based on a Dark Horse comic book of the same name by Chuck Pfarrer. The film was a major box-office flop.

The film revolves around the crew of a tugboat, the Sea Star. After barely entering the eye of a hurricane, they see another ship on the radar - the ''Academik Vladislav Volkov'', a Russian missile and satellite tracking ship. With their boat taking on water faster than they can pump it out, the crew boards the Volkov, where they find that the electronics have been powered down and the crew has abandoned ship. Once they power up the ship, bad things happen.

!!This film provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: Nadya definitely has her moments.
* AliensAreBastards
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler: Everton]].
* AttackOfTheKillerWhatever
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler: Richie]].
** The virus would also qualify. Hell, it breaks through a door in a fairly similar manner as [[TheShining Jack Nicholson]].
* BodyHorror
* ConvectionSchmonvection: At one point, Foster is swimming in the ship's fuel. She couldn't possibly get enough oxygen to not suffocate.
* EpicHail: A nearby ship responding to the previous mayday asks for a flare so that they can find them in the storm. Moments later [[spoiler: the ''Volkov'' explodes after Steve and Foster escape in the rocketsled and set off Ritchie's boobytrap. The fireball is seen by the other ship from miles away through the storm.]]
* GiantSpider: The climactic machine.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Nadya]].
** Averted when [[spoiler: Foster forbids Steve from doing it]].
* HumansAreBastards: Hence, we must [[KillAllHumans die]].
* KillAllHumans: Humans are destructive, invasive, noxious, harmful to the body of the whole. We are virus.
* KillAndReplace: "...you don't recognize me?"
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Vladislav Nikolayevich Volkov was a Soviet cosmonaut who flew on the Soyuz 7 and Soyuz 11 missions.
* NightmareSequence
* OhCrap: Pretty much everyone's initial reaction to seeing the climactic machine.
** Steve's reaction when his plunging an ax into the chest of a machine does nothing.
* [[RecycledINSPACE Recycled ON A BOAT]]: All that's missing is an "[[TheTerminator I'll be back]]".
* RunOrDie: Definitely how the bigger machines are treated.
* SceneryGorn: 42 labs and 5 machine shops worth.
* SealedEvilInACan
* TakingYouWithMe: Partially averted by Richie's plan. The nice man planned on taking the OTHERS with the virus, not himself.
* TechnologyPorn: ...42 labs and 5 machine shops worth.
* TheVirus: And it's from [[RecycledINSPACE SPAAAACE]].
* TitleDrop: YOU ARE VIRUS.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: Anyone the virus kills.
