I will keep this one short, as there isn’t much to say about Quarantine. I was up late last night working and happened to catch this on HBO. Uninspiring to say the least. It brings nothing new to the genre, isn’t very exciting or terrifying and goes for the lame first person narrative through a camera technique.
Jennifer Carpenter, who I have grown to like on Dexter, cries and wails and moans her way through this – making me question what dailies the director/producers were watching. It just gets annoying after a while. Minutes after the ‘outbreak’ in fact. ‘What the fuck is going on here?’ through sobs and wails a thousand times gets old. This would have played better as a short… Then again, would anyone have cared either way?
