Director Lars von Trier stars in a double role in this experimental horror fantasy. He pretentiously portrays a director who spends a year and a half preparing to make a horror film with help from a government grant. In the second part, he plays a young physician who unknowingly has a plague virus planted in his medical bag. Fantasy sequences depict the possible horror that could come if the virus is unleashed on the public. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Will never be confused with von Trier's great films. But it is an intriguing introduction to his later cinematic obsessions.
Uneven as von Trier can be, Epidemic is among his better and most revealing movies.
feels thrown together, as though von Trier is working at the mercy of available material, weaving it into a whole as he goes
It's an obsessed film that is too murky to be great cinema, but interesting enough to remain intriguing.
