Quarantine 2: Terminal plot revealed
Quarantine 2: Terminal has abandoned the ideas that [REC]2 (Filmstalker review) took the franchise in and have stuck with the same story, just transferring it to a new location, albeit a pretty good one considering the events that are to befall the characters.
The official blurb for Quarantine 2: Terminal has arrived, and I'm wondering if this will be the last, considering a possible double meaning for the title, but it could be getting close as it seems this might well be a direct to DVD and Blu-ray.
That does raise a couple of interesting points. One is what effect on [REC]2 does Quarantine 2: Terminal have if it's not half as clever as it's Spanish counterpart - will viewers think that it's a remake of [REC]2 and not bother going to see it, when in fact [REC]2 is a better film than the original, taking a superb change of direction.
It also shows off the foreign writers against the Hollywood writers. While those behind [REC] have thought about a clever way to continue the series and add a huge new plot line to give the film a different focus and direction to give the audience something new, the Hollywood version sounds like it's uprooted the story to a new location and is set to repeat the set-up.
Is that telling us something about Hollywood set against foreign film-makers?
Regardless there is an interesting setting for Quarantine 2: The Terminal, and here's the new blurb from ShockTillYouDrop:
"...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), 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), to devise a plan to survive."
Direct to DVD and Blu-ray, it doesn't sound like it's going to do anything new, although it does suggest something a little different, more akin to Resident Evil: Degeneration.
