The release date for the [REC] remake "QUARANTINE" has now been moved. The movie is
set to be released on October 10, which is just a week ahead of the previous date. It's
not much of a push, but it'll do. We've also updated our coverage for the movie in case
you haven't noticed.
The folks over at Shock Till You Drop posted up the official plot line for the Americanized
remake of [REC] which is called QUARANTINE. In the movie television reporter Angela Vidal
(Carpenter) and her cameraman (Harris) 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 Wilensky (Short) and McCreedy (Fiscella) already on the scene in
response to blood curdling screams coming from one of the apartment units. Unbeknownst
to them, a woman has contracted a rare strain of rabies. When they try to leave the
building with those injured from a wild attack by the infected woman, they find that they’
ve been locked in.
Indeed, there are police, SWAT and CDC crews securing the building. But phones, internet,
televisions and cell phone access have been cut-off, and officials are not relaying
information to those quarantined inside. Written and directed by John Erick Dowdle and co-
written by Drew Dowdle, the film stars Jay Hernandez, Jennifer Carpenter, Columbus Short,
Steve Harris, Johnathon Schaech and Andrew Fiscella. The film has a release date set for
October 17th, 2008.
