Viral Quarantine

Ah, viral marketing, the bane of Internet journalists’ existences. Some of this stuff is so damn obscure; it’s hard to follow the connection to the actual film it’s supposed to relate to (see anything regarding Cloverfield for examples).
Today a piece of video showed up on YouTube that’s a guy talking about some audio he has relating to a missing cop. Then he tells you to go to Last Palm Tree, a site run by a missing person expert discussing real world cases. So what the hell is it for?

Quarantine, of course, the remake of the Spanish horror film “>REC (review) coming to you from John Dowdle, director of The Poughkeepsie Tapes. I’m really not sure how it’s all connected, but if you’re into a bit of investigation, you can start with the video below.

Quarantine currently has an October 17th, 2008 release tacked on it.

  1. I don’t blame you, TDA. I LOOVE Viral Marketing as well. I hope the remake ends up being very good, if anything.

  2. I’m not following another viral campaign. I’m still exhausted over “Cloverfield.” Besides, I’m not even that interested in “Quarantine.” The first video was curious, but beyond that, I’ll just wait for the flipping movie.
