Movie Trailer: Quarantine

The new horror movie “Quarantine” is a remake of the Spanish horror movie “Rec”, which was just released in 2008. Yes, there was an American remake in production before the original was even released, which must be some kind of record. In any case, I have seen a little bit of the original, and from the newly released trailer for “Quarantine”, it looks very much like they followed the original pretty closely, right down to the reporter and zombie-fied residents of the apartment. Check the trailer out below.

Television reporter Angela Vidal (Jennifer Carpenter) and her cameraman (Steve Harris) are assigned to spend the night shift with a Los Angeles Fire Station. After a routine 911 call takes them to a small apartment building, they find police officers already on the scene in response to blood curdling screams coming from one of the apartment units. They soon learn that a woman living in the building has been infected by something unknown. After a few of the residents are viciously attacked, they try to escape with the news crew in tow, only to find that the CDC has quarantined the building. Phones, Internet, televisions and cell phone access have been cut-off, and officials are not relaying information to those locked inside. When the quarantine is finally lifted, the only evidence of what took place is the news crew’s videotape.

Starring Johnathon Schaech, Jennifer Carpenter, Columbus Short, Marin Hinkle, Jay Hernandez, Joey King, and directed by John Erick Dowdle.

I also laughed when people got hurt but…..
