If you’re getting a little stir crazy being cooped up in this difficult but necessary self-isolation period we’ve got some good stuff for you guys. It might not take your mind off the situation at hand, exactly, but it could make your time in quarantine pass a bit faster.
So, below, the Kali Krew has put together their list of the best plague themed books, movies, and games that we could think of! A few zombies might shamble their way through, as well.
We hope everyone out there is doing well physically and mentally. This is going to be a bit of a test on working together, showing care for others by taking the necessary precautions. And, most importantly perhaps, don’t panic. You can be worried (I’ll let you, it’s ok) but don’t panic to the extent that you’re actively harming your mental health and that of others. There are enough supplies, when shopping, think of the others in the store and know that others need essentials as well.
We’d also like to add a shout-out to the horror community in general for handling this well by helping each other and special thanks to the authors who have dropped their prices on books. Even though they need the income right now we respect them for not taking advantage and wanting to lend a hand. That’s awesome and it makes the horror community a great one!
