Quarantine 2: Terminal Review


A plane is taken over by a mysterious virus. When the plane lands it is placed under quarantine. Now a group of survivors must band together to survive the quarantine.

Quarantine 2: Terminal (2011) is the sequel to the popular Quarantine (2008) starring Jennifer Carpenter (HBO’s Dexter TV Series, The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005)). John Pogue (The Quiet Ones (2014)) directed this film that received an estimated $4 million at the box office. The first Quarantine film was a remake of the [Rec] (2007) film, but Quarantine 2 has an entirely different plot and setting than any other film in the [Rec] franchise making it an original film in the extended franchise.

Quarantine 2 picks up with elements from the ending of Quarantine. This horror movie sequel starts off with passengers on a plane. When the plane lands, it is immediately quarantined as the scares begin to rise. The survivors are stalked by menacing evil mutations of human beings that are extremely quick and deadly. These monsters are gruesome.

I loved the tone of the movie from the start and liking the original; I immediately jumped in for some good scares. I was not expecting the lead played by Mercedes Mason (AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, Red Sands (2009)) to be performed so well; she did an excellent job. The rest of the cast also did a remarkable job with their roles. My review may be admittedly biased because it is hard for an action horror movie to be a great horror film in general. I loved the elements that delivered well and overlooked some of the goofs and minor misses. This installment takes us from the airplane through the airport before the final scene concludes.
