Quarantine 2: Terminal More than Just a Remake of [REC] 2

Published

on

Quarantine 2: Terminal More than Just a Remake of [REC] 2Quarantine was a fairly faithful Americanized adaptation of the Spanish horror hit [REC], aside from the drawn out intro at the firehouse and the decision to replace the supernatural element with super rabies. While [REC 2] is currently scaring audiences, the makers of Quarantine 2: Terminal have come up with their own ideas rather than just a sequel to a remake that would also be a remake of a sequel.

Lightning Entertainment wrapped production last week on the follow-up to Quarantine written and directed by John Pogue, the scribe responsible for Ghost Ship, the universally reviled Rollerball remake, and all three movies in The Skulls franchise, and boasting make-up effects courtesy of Rob Hall, whose work can also be seen in the first Quarantine as well as the remake of The Crazies.

Quarantine 2: Terminal tells the horrifying tale of the Dread Central staff as they fight for their lives to escape a building after being sequestered inside with a relentless Puerto Rican horror fan who constantly second guesses their every decision. Or it could just be about people stuck on a passenger plane with rabid zombies running amok.

In QUARANTINE an apartment building in Los Angeles was quarantined by the CDC (Center for Disease Control), trapping the frightened residents inside as a deadly mutant virus turned the residents into rabid killers. QUARANTINE 2: TERMINAL picks up later that night at LAX, as passengers board a flight to Nashville. When a passenger becomes violently ill with a mysterious rabies-like virus, the plane makes an emergency landing at a large metropolitan airport. Jenny (Mercedes Masohn, CBS’s “Three Rivers”), a heroic yet inexperienced flight attendant, takes charge of the safety of her passengers. Relieved when a swarm of heavily equipped emergency vehicles, police units and the CDC arrive, Jenny and the passengers soon discover that they have been quarantined and are now trapped. Desperate to escape, Jenny enlists the help of one of the surviving passengers, a kindergarten teacher, Henry (Josh Cooke, A Fork In The Road, I Love you Man), to devise a plan to survive.

I was a big admirer of REC and the work that the Dowdles did on QUARANTINE, so I was thrilled when given the opportunity to write and direct the sequel”, says director Pogue. “QUARANTINE 2: TERMINAL will expand the mythology behind the first film for fans and ramp up the twisted thrills, building on that universal fear of being trapped on an airplane.”. What mythology? It was a super virulent strain of fast-acting rabies that turned people into rage zombies. Guess we’ll have to wait and see what Pogue and company have in mind.

Rest assured we will be hearing much more about this sequel in the near future.

What Will Marvel’s MORBIUS Movie Be About?

Published

on

It isn’t often in this day and age of superheroes that all of us horror fans get a flick to be excited about. Sure we have Venom on the way starring Tom Hardy, but let’s not forget that the planned adaptation of Morbius The Living Vampire should be good horror times as well.

And speaking of which today we have word on just what the Morbius movie might be about. A supposed working logline for the film reads as follows:

Horror action story of a scientist who, in trying to find a cure for a rare blood disease, accidentally transformed himself into a living vampire who, though disgusted by his own bloodlust, chooses to prey upon criminals he deems unworthy of life.”

This is about what we could expect the film to be about, but still, it’s cool to see that the powers that we are approaching the film as a “horror-action” film and not the other way around. This news came to us from That Hashtag Show and thus may not be the official logline for the film, but we will make sure to keep you guys up-to-date on any news we hear regarding this horror-action movie.

THE FIRST PURGE Rated R For “Strong Disturbing Violence Throughout” and More

Published

on

This Independence Day, we will not be attacked by aliens or other such nonsense. No, we will be experiencing The First Purge via Blumhouse and director Gerard McMurray. And from the looks of today’s news, it’s going to be a brutal time at the movies.

Today we have word via the MPAA that the film has been slapped with an R rating for “strong disturbing violence throughout, pervasive language, some sexuality and drug use.”

Damn.

Are you excited about The First Purge? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The film is directed by Gerard McMurray from a screenplay by James DeMonaco and stars Y’Lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez and Marisa Tomei.

It begins July 4th, 2018.

Synopsis:

Behind every tradition lies a revolution. Next Independence Day, witness the rise of our country’s 12 hours of annual lawlessness. Welcome to the movement that began as a simple experiment: The First Purge. To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.
