The Plague (also known as Clive Barker's The Plague) is a 2006 horror film directed by Hal Masonberg and written by Masonberg and Teal Minton; it was also co-produced by Clive Barker. The story is somewhat similar to the 1960 British film Village of the Damned.

A prominent recurring image in the film is a dogeared copy of John Steinbeck's novel The Grapes of Wrath. The plot of the film adopts ideas and structure from Steinbeck's novel, beginning with the release of Tom Russel from prison, returning to a home immersed in intolerable misery, stumbling from disaster to disaster, and culminating in a kind of hope for redemption that may some day compensate for the horror that has gone before.
