Quarantine: The Game?!

John Dowdle's Quarantine just won some of us over. No, it's not a picture of Jennifer Carpenter in the buff but something much better!

New High Quality Quarantine Trailer

AITH picked up the newest trailer for Quarantine and it raised some new questions. We know that everything is shot from a news cameraman's equipment, but the entire film looks pretty steady and in HD. Maybe all the complaints via Cloverfield-sickness made director John Dowdle opt for a less shaky film?

New Quarantine & Drag Me to Hell Dates

2008 feels like the year of the release date switch. Midnight Meat Train was one of those victims, but we're pretty confident the following two titles won't end up the balls of some insane studio juggler.

Sneak a Peek at Quarantine's Infected!

The Brothers Dowdle are shaping their remake of REC (review) up pretty nicely. Those of us who have seen the original may not jump the same way twice, but it's pretty easy to see that their interpretation of the Spanish original may just do the trick on a fresh audience.

    Plot Synopsis:

    Television reporter Angela Vidal and her cameraman are assigned to spend the night shift with a Los Angeles Fire Station. After a routine 911 call takes them to a small apartment building, they find police officers already on the scene in response to blood curdling screams coming from one of the apartment units. They soon learn that a woman living in the building has been infected by something unknown. After a few of the residents are viciously attacked, they try to escape with the news crew in tow, only to find that the CDC has quarantined the building.

    First Look at Quarantine Poster

    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.

    Quarantine Gets Rated

    If you saw The Strangers (review) this past week, there's a good chance the trailer for REC's American remake played before the feature presentation. Up until now the film's rating was still in limbo.

    Balaguero and Plaza to Hit REC Again!

    REC (review) directors Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza have been asked to once again show the world horrific events through the eyes of a hand-held camera.

    Get Quarantined at Comic Con!

    Ever wanted to go to the San Diego Comic Con? It's pretty bad ass, but not everyone can afford to head out there each year. Luckily, Sony Pictures is offering two winners a chance at just that via their Quarantined Sweepstakes! Check out the widget below for more details.

    REC DVD Arrives in May ... in Spain

    The U.S. remake of REC (review) isn't due out till October 17th, so does that mean we have to wait that long to see the original on DVD? Nope!

    Quarantine Trailer Live!

    Many of us have been wondering how Quarantine, the U.S. remake of REC (review), is going to compare to its original. We know a few things have changed in regard to the "infection", but what about how the movie is shot? Well, thanks to DC reader Germboy, we have some answers.

    Carpenter Cornered in Quarantine

    The American remake of REC, known as Quarantine, could go a long way if it stays as creepy as the original. It has a strong leading lady, and director John Erick Dowdle knows what he's doing when it comes to cinema vérité. You'll know what I am talking about whenever The Poughkeepsie Tapes is released.

    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).

    Quarantine Gets Viral

    October 17th may seem like a long time away, but at least John Dowdle's remake of REC (review), titled Quarantine is revving its engine with some viral marketing (“Diary and Quarantine Release Dates!” – November 2007). YouTube video blogger named Eric has released an interesting video shot outside a building that has been roped off. Check it out below.

    First Shutter & Quarantine Stills

    Seriously now, why is it that whenever studios release pics from their horror titles that they’re always the most boring, tell-you-nothing images they can find? I mean, if you have a movie with some ghosts and gore, at least show them off!
