In the world of pointless American remakes, “Quarantine” sits comfortably at the top of the heap. Thing is, I appear to be in the minority, as most people I’ve encountered seem to absolutely adore this extremely sorry excuse for a motion picture. Go figure. At any rate, Shock Till You Drop has posted the official synopsis for “Quarantine 2: Terminal”, a film that, surprisingly, isn’t lifting its plot directly from its Spanish counterpart, “[Rec] 2”. The downside, of course, is that the film is helmed by John Pogue, the man responsible for penning “Ghost Ship” and that abysmal “Rollerball” remake. Make of that what you will.
As promised, the synopsis:
QUARANTINE 2: TERMINAL picks up later that night at LAX, as passengers board a flight to Nashville. When a passenger becomes violently ill with a mysterious rabies-like virus, the plane makes an emergency landing at a large metropolitan airport. Jenny (Mercedes Masohn, CBS’s “Three Rivers”), a heroic yet inexperienced flight attendant, takes charge of the safety of her passengers. Relieved when a swarm of heavily equipped emergency vehicles, police units and the CDC arrive, Jenny and the passengers soon discover that they have been quarantined and are now trapped. Desperate to escape, Jenny enlists the help of one of the surviving passengers, a kindergarten teacher, Henry (Josh Cooke, A Fork In The Road, I Love you Man), to devise a plan to survive.
Excited? No? Well, I’m sure there will be a huge marketing push to help correct that particular problem once we barrel closer to the film’s release date. In the meantime, why not check out “[Rec] 2”? It’s a fantastic flick, one that rightfully deserves your attention.
