Halloween Horrors 2012 #10 QUARANTINE 2: TERMINAL
I love the REC films, so I had and still have no interest in the first remake, but this film goes out on it's own (I assume it was shot as REC 2 was still being wrapped up) and is one of those film making moments that makes me jealous of the writer of the film. What to do?
Well, take a virus movie and put it on a plane for awhile, you can't really escape the plane and germs have a way of staying on board and spreading fast. And that is just what happens as our lovely stewardesses and range of trope loving passengers begin to succumb to tiny lab rat bites that turn them into crazed mutant maniacs. You got angry kid, fat guy, hot woman on the prowl, annoying douche and cowed wife...and my favorite was actually the addition of the Parkinson's Disease stricken passenger who has to watch in horror as things unfold. I say thee WALK oh poor man...better yet, run and screech ARRRRRRRRRRRRRR while devouring your fellow passengers!!
It's gory, it's short and it has enough zombie styled action for those that want it to make you smile in your seats and maybe even jump a few times. Of course, it really just makes me want to watch REC and REC 2 this month as well...argh! To many Horrors this Halloween to take in!
John Pogue is also credited as the director of the upcoming Hammer Films production THE QUIET ONES, so HammerHeads may want to check this out as a demo reel. He definitely has a handle on stylized RRRAAARRRGHING!
