Two sci-fi movies

Recently I watched two movies, one is Invasion, and another is I am legend. Both happen to be very similar plotted sci- fi movies. The plot is about by human's own over-developed technological advances, virus conquers human being. Human becomes zombie of virus with sticky and gross appearance and vicious habit.
