Directed with clinical precision by Robert Wise, this record of the earth's first biological crisis is perhaps the most painstakingly authentic science fiction thriller ever made. When a satellite falls to earth near a remote New Mexico village, the recovery team finds everyone in the area dead except an infant and an old derelict. The survivors are brought to a five-story underground lab; one of the most elaborate and intricate sets ever assembled in Hollywood, where scientists attempt to determine the nature of the deadly microbe before it starts a world wide epidemic. A trailblazer in the realm of science fact, 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.
