Cabin Fever (2003)
Name: The Fever
Symptoms: A flesh eating disease which causes massive hemorrhaging and tissue necrosis. Victims typically bleed directly through the skin in early stages. In later stages, tissues become soft and slough away. It is known to be transmitted through drinking contaminated water.

Name: Deadly Plant Toxin
Symptoms: A mysterious toxin created by plants in their defense, wich infects people with a suicide desire.
Name: The Parasite
Symptoms: A combination of aphrodisiac and venereal disease parasite. Once infected, it causes uncontrollable sexual desire in the host.
Name: White Sickness
Symptoms: A mysterious epidemic of sudden blindness affects virtually all humanity, leading to society's collapse. So-called because victims see nothing but a white glare.
Cure: None, the sight it recovers suddenly, by itself.
Symptoms: A deadly, virulent Ebola-like virus from the jungles of Zaire. Early stages resemble the flu, with pink eyes, coughing and fever. In later stages, the fever rises as high as 108, and victims seize violently, break out in skin lesions and bleed internally, causing a dark rash on the skin. Motaba incubates in 24 hours and kills in 48. The virus is 100% fatal. There is an airborne strain of Motaba.
Cure: Monoclonal antibodies from the monkey host.
Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)
Symptoms: An artificial virus created by Umbrella. When a human is infected by it, the virus will destroy all cells, killing the host. Among two and four hours, all cells will be revitalized. But the virus will only activate one brain function: the hypothalamus, where feeding is controlled. The host becomes a violent mindless cannibal, and can infect other people by biting. Because of this effect, the virus was also called the "cannibal disease".
The Signal (2008)
Name: The Signal
Symptoms: A mysterious transmission invades every cell phone, radio, and television and turns people into killers.
The Andromeda Strain (1971)
Name: The Andromeda Strain
Symptoms: A deadly, green, crystalline, extraterrestrial agent of indeterminate origin. It erodes the vessel walls of the circulatory system, causing death by either triggering the body's coagulation response (resulting in the entire system clotting in a few seconds). It evolves at a rapid rate, is spread by airborne transmission, and is extremely contagious.
Name: The Vampire Flu
Symptoms: A mysterious plague spreading like an epidemic, transforms the majority of the world's human population into vampires.
Cure: Vampires who're cured by the sun have an antigen in their blood that can reverse the effects of vampirism.

Splinter (2008) (2009)
Name: Pointy Mutant Disease
Symptoms: The infection comes courtesy of an foreign creature, something like a an alien porcupine fungus, a parasite that spreads through a host's body and takes it over, whether it's dead or alive, as a whole or in parts.
The Thing (1982)
Name: Thing cells
Symptoms: Triangle-pyramid viruses that makes up Thing monsters. If it enters another animal, it fuses with every cell of the host, possessing the host entirely. Each infected cell becomes an individual life form with its own desire to survive. An infected cell will seek out other cells to infect with its virus, and will work together with other infected cells to imitate other life forms. Because infected cells can rapidly duplicate and shapeshift, and because dislocated pieces of an infected host will shapeshift and become separate entities, infected hosts can only be killed if every individual cell is destroyed. Finally, hosts retain their knowledge and memories, allowing the virus to perfectly imitate any person and remain undetected.
Symptoms: Reaper causes effects similar to black plague. It appears in Scotland in the year 2008 and kills most of the inhabitants. Scotland is put under quarantine. Some decades later, Reaper reappears in London.
Cure: Yes, but it is unknown whether or not it will be given to the population.
Name: Hemoglophagia (HGV)
Symptoms: Disease responsible for turning many humans into vampire-like creatures. Contrary to most vampiral diseases, hemoglophagia drastically shortens the lifespan of an infected individual to little over a decade.
Cure: Violet's tears.
28 Weeks Later (2007) (2007)
Name: Rage (Human Cortico-Deficiency)
Symptoms: Rage causes extreme aggression in a victim only seconds after being infected with the disease. The disease is easily transmissible through any bodily fluid, except apparently semen. Because of this extreme contagiousness and very short incubation time, a crowd of hundreds could be infected by one single individual in a manner of minutes. Infected organisms die out in a few months, succumbing to starvation, since they do not actually eat their victims. They also seem to drool blood constantly.
This virus is also found in 28 Days Later...
Name: Pandorum (Orbital Dysfunctional Syndrome)
Symptoms: Psychological disorder stemming from excessive amounts of time spent conscious during space travel. The ailment takes full-blown effect when the victim is faced with unpleasant or painful truths. It starts with minor twitches, then auditory and visual hallucinations before becoming a severe psychotic episode. The most famous example is the first recorded case: a spaceship technician murdered his superiors before launching all 5000 cryosleep pods into space to their death, vertigo is a sub-branch of this fictional disease.
I Am Legend (2007)
Name: Krippen Virus (KV)
Symptoms: A genetically re-engineered measles virus originally created as a "miracle cure" for cancer, but mutated into a lethal, highly-pathogenic strain. KV has a 90% mortality rate; less than 1% of humans are immune. Two transmission vectors for the pathogen are inhalation and infected blood, with two corresponding immunity profiles. Infected humans who did not die began exhibiting early symptoms of rabies and degenerated into a state driven by rage. A major symptom is that the adrenal glands are "permanently open", giving victims increased strength, speed and agility but also a faster metabolism. This results in increased body temperature, heart rate, and breathing speed, making those infected hyperventilate constantly. Pupils became permanently dilated and skin became hypersensitive to UV radiation, forcing infected hosts into a nocturnal life cycle. Loss of body hair is another symptom. Non-humans such as rats and dogs are also susceptible to KV. They are sensitive to blood. These infected are similar to vampires.
Cure: Virus antibodies extracted from the blood of a female darkseeker (infected human) gained with the help of a serum produced by Neville.
