What movie should I show my class about the spread of infection?

I am currently in my first practicum as a student teacher, and one class is doing a unit on disease, public health, and [at most punnett square level] genetics.
We're working through this unit much faster than they're probably used to, so I would like to set aside 2 half-periods to watch a movie to tie things together and reward their hard work.
While I imagine that any zombie movie will work, I don't feel like getting in trouble by showing something too full of gore/nudity, and I am also not well versed in film enough to feel like I have made the best choice. A movie that does not blatantly contradict what they are being taught would also be helpful.
In case it is relevant, which it might be, this is a grade 11 science class at the lowest [3rd] level, and likely the last science course these students will ever take. Mostly these students are clever, but do not attend school [for various reasons] often enough to continue in the regular stream.
