Poster Talk; Quarantine

Jennifer Carpenter: Yes, yes I’m aware that you probably only know me from The Exorcism Of Emily Rose, where I played Emily Rose who was consequently exorcised, and yes, I know that was a horror film, and yes, I know this is also a horror film, and yes, I’m aware that my surname is Carpenter, and yes, I’m aware that there is a really famous horror film director who’s surname is Carpenter, but its all a coincidence, okay? But I was also in Dexter, that really cool t.v. show? You haven’t heard of it? Oh well. But look at me now, all in your face on this poster for a remake of a really good Spanish horror film? You haven’t heard of it? Oh well. But the tagline is pretty cool. Well, yes, its pretty long, and kinda gives away my and everyone else in the films fate…… I just can’t get a break. And you wonder why I cry in the dark?

Quarantine Trailer

That’s the trailer for Quarantine, the U.S. remake of a fairly brilliant Spanish-horror movie called [REC] (the review for which can be found elsewhere on this site).
It looks pretty much shot-for-shot remake of the original, which may be a good thing, since not many people outside of Spain will have seen the original. Whether or not they can properly translate the crippling sense of terror that the original maintained…… we’ll have to wait til October to see.

“Case 1017”?

Its not yet clear whether or not this is the beginnings of a near viral campaign, or a very expensive YouTube prank, but its interesting none-the-less. The guy who logged it up online left this accompanying statement:

i got fired from my job yesterday b/c of this f*cking youtube video blog i started last week. i found this tape in one of the boxes i took home with me. it’s dated 3/11/08 which means it just happened 4 days ago. where the hell is this, and what the hell is going on?

Word on the street is that its the beginnings of promotional work for Quarantine, the U.S. remake of hit Spanish horror movie [Rec]. More on this soon.
