Alot better than doodoo apocalypse

This film consists of four segments from four different directors. All four directors are from different countries. One from Chile..one from Germany and two from Italy. I've never seen a folm like this where the story was about a deadly virus. The first three segments are pretty graphic and kind of disturbing. But overall...this is definitely an original film about contagious viruses. I would definitely recommend this one.

10 / 10

Very good movie, are zero-star bad comments fake?

I loved the movie and I would recommend it.Also, there is some good critic that shares my same good opinion.I read many bad comments down there, but I don't see the point to give one star to a very good work. Well done, guys!

A horror anthology of varied worth...

Okay, well I wasn't really expecting "Ill: Final Contagium" to be an anthology, so that was a little bit of a disappointment for me. Of course, I could just have had read the movie synopsis before sitting down to watch it. But I was lured in by the movie's cover/poster, and the fact that it was a horror movie that I hadn't already seen.

Well, the various segments were of very various entertainment value, that much was for certain. Personally I enjoyed the second segment the most, the one with the boyfriend mooching on his grandmother and having become infected. Then in a second place was the one with the two ladies trying to swindle the man out of his valuables, at least it was the segment that had the most drive to it. The segment with the plastic surgery person was just a bit too much - but I found it to be a wonderful comedic take on a lot of people's unhealthy craving for achieving the perfect look. And the segment with the father and son was just plain boring.

However, I will say that the segment with the infected boyfriend in his grandmothers apartment was a bit too reminiscent of "The Fly", while the plastic surgery segment borrowed a bit from "The Re-Animator". So talk about lack of originality there, huh?

The acting in "Ill: Final Contagium" was adequate, so that definitely helped to carry the individual segments a great long way.

And the special effects in "Ill: Final Contagium" were actually good; well, good enough for a horror anthology as it turned out to be.

All in all, "Ill: Final Contagium" was watchable, but it was by no means an outstanding horror anthology, and I doubt it highly that I will ever return to watch it a second time.

My rating of this 2020 horror anthology settles on a less than mediocre four out of ten stars.
