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!
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.
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.
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).
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.
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!
