The New ‘Quarantine’ Trailer

9 07 2008

Basically, if you mix The Blair Witch Project with Cloverfield with Diary of the Dead, you get the movie, Quarantine. This shot-for-shot remake of the Spanish zombie film, [REC], contains all of the necessary cliches one would expect from such a film.

From IWatchStuff.com:

‘Does it have fearful weeping delivered directly into the camera? Yes, it does. Seemingly scary things happening that the cameraman barely catches a glimpse of? Yes. Someone insisting the cameraman keeps taping? Yes again. The assurance that many will leave the theater complaining about feeling motion sick? Yes! All those clichés and more!’

Now, I liked The Blair Witch Project, I thought Cloverfield kinda sucked, and Diary of the Dead was okay, so I’m not really sure what to think of this movie yet. When it comes to shot-for-shot remakes, it can be hit-or-miss. For example, I loved Funny Games, but hated Gus Van Sant’s Psycho. I’ve heard good things about [REC], so I hope Quarantine is at least half-decent.
