SynopsisA sequel to the box office success Quarantine, Screen Gems' remake of the Spanish horror film [REC] heads into an airport.
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.
Like Matt Reeves’ Let Me In, 2008’s Quarantine is the rare American horror remake that somehow manages to not fuck up the original foreign film it’s based on ([REC]). A local TV news camera crew shadows a team of firefighters as they explore a rabies outbreak in an apartment building, and are subsequently plastic-wrapped into the building by the CDC. Quarantine’s a slow starter, but the scares come fast and furious in the final half. Quarantine 2: Terminal abandons the camera crew angle while retaining the hand-held documentary aesthetic, which has a tendency to drain the film of the immediacy that was so palpable in the original. In Quarantine, you were in that building, which pumped up the tension considerably. Still, Quarantine 2 serves as a solid little sequel, a scrappy, low-budget chiller that would almost certainly tank in theaters, but as a straight-to-DVD release, it‘s entirely adequate. …Read More
