MoH 207: The Screwfly Solution (2006)

Director: Joe Dante

Starring: Jason Priestley, Kerry Norton, Linda Darlow, Brenna O'Brien, Steve Lawlor, Elliott Gould, William S. Taylor

More info: IMDb

Plot: When a virus overcomes the male population of the United States and turns them into murderous psychopaths, a mother and daughter escape across a country where their safety is in question.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again?  Yes.

Man, this second season is pretty damn strong.  This episode is one of my absolute favorites bringing to the table a really good science fiction/horror story.  The acting is solid as is really everything else.  Joe Dante did a great job bringing all the elements together for a top notch genre thriller.  I was hooked all the way to the finish line.  It was really cool seeing Elliott Gould.  He had a couple of scenes that were a lot more grounded than usual for him.  Sometimes he can get a bit much but I still love him.  This is a very good story.
