Running Time: 1 hr. 30 min.
Though Rod Taylor chooses to leave Germicide off his official resume, the film isn't really that bad. Taylor plays a dedicated scientist who learns that a bacterial weapon is at the ready to wipe out most of mankind. He tries to warn the authorities, but is thwarted at every turn by terrorists and extortionists. Even his mistress Bibi Andersson (how did she get involved in all this?) turns against him. Andromeda Strain it isn't, but Germicide does provide a few good scares and gasps. ~ Hal
