Update: Quarantine 2: Terminal trailer
There's a trailer online for Quarantine 2: Terminal, the sequel to the American scene by scene remake of the Spanish horror film [REC]. While the first one was not bad, it was after all a direct remake of the original since so many people seem to not like reading subtitles and prefer to be force fed their entertainment, so what's the sequel like?
Well the most notable thing is that it's going off on its own sequel route, not following the Spanish version they've decided to do the intelligent American sequel idea and build the same story in a different location.
I don't think this is very clever really. We see someone escape the original location on an airplane and they barely manage to land the flight, end up in an airport which is quickly sealed off and quarantined. Hey presto, it's the same story as before but in a different location. Dwindling number of survivors fight against a growing number of infected. It doesn't look half as clever as [REC]2 (Filmstalker review) was.
That said the bootlegged trailer does look rather good and provides for more of the same but it could be a good more of the same. The different location doesn't matter much, apart from the idea of it beginning on a plane, but the snippets of moments in the trailer do make it look as though it's going to be exciting and on the edge of your seat.
Of course the old problem will surface, who is filming all this on the plane and the airport? How are they going to shoe horn in the whole idea that someone is filming it and can't put the camera down? The first time I completely bought into the news crew, but this time? Who is going to be filming it from start to finish?
Here's the blurb for Quarantine 2: Terminal which Quiet Earth found:
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, 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, to devise a plan to survive.
