Quarantine 2: Terminal
Running Time: 86 minutes
Starring: Josh Cooke
Directed By: John Pogue
Rating: 1 out of 10
A plane full of passengers is quarantined at an airport terminal after they are exposed to a deadly virus.
I am not sure why they make 4 or 5 sequels to every horror movies these days but here we are. After an entertaining but mediocre first installment, we find ourselves with the second Quarantine film, that is best left unseen. This film has all the appeal of catching a horrible disease or having to watch Nicolas Cage do Shakespeare. Quarantine 2 is the story of a plane flight afflicted with a mysterious virus. After the plane is forced to land, the passengers are quarantined in an airplane baggage terminal.
The acting is not good and that is putting it politely. I am not going to rip on the actors though, as it is mostly out of their control. The spotty dialogue, shitty cameras, and inane character personalities all conspire against them. The only person I have to point out, was a character named George, played by Mattie Liptak. This kid needs acting school ASAP. He somehow ruined a movie that already sucked out loud. He basically reminded me of an emo Justin Bieber, or I guess Justin Bieber. I cannot express enough on how much I hated this kid’s performance.
Director and writer, John Pogue, has put together just an awful film. It fails on every level and frankly it is shocking to me that it got made. To be fair, with the lack of budget and no name actors, this film was destined to fail. If you have seen the first Quarantine, then this movie can be missed as it is just a copycat in a different locale. I do applaud Pogue for not using the found footage technique but that is about it. I won’t judge him as he had little to work with, but by god this was a disaster.
I cannot give this movie a recommendation as I rather get rabies then watch another film like this.
T Factor + If you like B grade horror then this could score higher on the rating scale.
T Factor – If you like realistic blood and gore in your horror then this could score lower on the rating scale.
If you liked this film reel recommendations: 28 weeks later, Dawn of the Dead.
