First Look at Quarantine Poster

Quarantine poster (click to see it bigger)I’ve been hearing some mixed things about John Dowdle’s Quarantine recently, but I can’t help but be curious how he pulls of this remake of “>REC (review), one of the most-loved horror films in recent years.

Sony has plans to release Quarantine on October 17th, and over the weekend the first poster art for it showed up at Cinema Expo in Amsterdam. Film 1 got a good snap of it, which you can see on your right. Not sure how I feel about it, really; I mean there’s no way they could get away with something as simplistic as the REC poster was, but did they have to have so much damn explanation on the poster itself?

Ah, I’m just being picky. Jennifer Carpenter screaming is what sells this poster, we all know that. Audiences want to see women in peril, right? Right!? Especially when they look as if they’re reaching out … for you…

Hit up Film 1 to see more posters for things like The Day the Earth Stood Still remake and Ice Age 3, both horrific for their own reasons.

    The poster looks very direct-to-video.

      I don’t think I’ve ever seen a direct-to-video cover/poster that looked anything like that.

  • Blockbuster

    I just *HEART* Jennifer Carpenter. Ahhhhhh…Dexter’s sister. Mmmmmmmmm…

  • Johnny Butane

    From what I’ve heard it’s almost a shot-for-shot remake, so then I guess it depends on the talent…

  • Kryten Syxx

    Well what do you know … they’re using the last shot of the film for the poster.

    • Hunter1006

      Yeah, and that’s really upsetting.
      [REC] is a fucking masterpiece. Even though QUARANTINE is rated R, I’m still very fearful.

    • G.D.

      Well considering that they’re targeting the people who haven’t seen Rec, doesn’t seem like it matter much, does it? Unless someone who has seen it decides to ruin it for someone who hasn’t seen it.

      And…does it give ANYTHING away?
