The Andromeda Strain. 1971.

A group of scientists work together to find out what killed a small town's population and how to stop the contagion and discover how a elderly man and a baby managed to survive.

One movie I wasn't really fond of at first but has slowly grown on me over the years that the film was adapted from the novel by Michael Crichton and directed by Robert Wise.

While the movie is outdated with people using typewriters instead of computers, that can be bypassed easily, this is a mixture of tense thriller and a alien disease from a fallen satellite. Arthur Hill, David Wayne, James Olson, and Kate Reid play the scientists chosen to investigate the mystery of what the contagion is and how to find a possible cure in a secret underground bunker. There is a somewhat slow build up then it becomes a good thrilling movie.
