Virus (also known as Formula for Death) is a 1995 television film starring Nicollette Sheridan, William Devane, Stephen Caffrey, Dakin Matthews, Kurt Fuller, Barry Corbin and William Atherton. It was directed by Armand Mastroianni and written by Robin Cook and Roger Young, based on Cook's novel Outbreak. The film is also known as Formula for Death (the DVD title).
Todd Everett of Variety wrote, "In reducing the hazard to the level of personal melodrama, both the feature and the telepic trivialize the real-life menace, which is plenty scary on its own." John J. O'Connor of The New York Times called the story inane and harebrained. Chris Willman of the Los Angeles Times wrote that Mastroianni "tries to pump imperiled-woman suspense into the ludicrous scheming, with minimal antidotal effect. Prepare for an outbreak of laughter."
