There isn’t much I like less than hearing people prattle on about Peyton Manning. One of those people currently engaging in this is Bob Costas. Needless to say, I hit mute on my TV and decided to say a few words about Quarantine.
I know it’s a divisive movie (with it being a remake of [REC] and all), but I love this movie. It’s really freaky, and has some really jump-worthy moments.
It’s a found footage movie, but, since that film comes from a professional cameraman, the footage isn’t all grainy and shaky. The camera is also used as a weapon, which is a lot of fun.
Jennifer Carpenter is terrific in this. You can feel the sense of panic slowly growing in her until all hell eventually breaks out, and she completely freaks out.
There’s a creepy old woman, a crazed child and a man trying to walk on his exposed leg bone. It’s a lovely movie. And, honestly, I like this better than [REC].
