Spread by your common variety cockroach, Strickler’s Disease affects the children of Manhattan in Guillermo del Toro’s monster flick.
Most Gruesome Symptoms:
Well, it only affects children, which is pretty freakin’ nasty. For the lucky ones who survive it, they can look forward to a lifetime in leg braces.
For the others, it’s a slow, panting, sweaty death that looks pretty damn uncomfortable.
How Long You’d Last:
Well, it’s not so much Strickler’s that you should be worried about.
The real question is, how long would you survive the human-imitating mutated Judas Breed?
They’re created by entomologist Susan Tyler (Mira Sorvino) to kill the cockroaches, but pose a far greater problem than the disease.
