Quarantine – the next Cloverfield?

I stumbled across this preview today and had to pass it on to you guys because of how similar it looks to a recent blockbuster hit that caused a lot of vomiting in theaters.

The movie is called Quarantine and the plot outline is below:

Television reporter Angela Vidal (Jennifer Carpenter) and her cameraman (Steve 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 already on the scene in response to blood curdling screams coming from one of the apartment units. They soon learn that a woman living in the building has been infected by something unknown. After a few of the residents are viciously attacked, they try to escape with the news crew in tow, only to find that the CDC has quarantined the building. Phones, internet, televisions and cell phone access have been cut-off, and officials are not relaying information to those locked inside. When the quarantine is finally lifted, the only evidence of what took place is the news crew’s videotape.

Hmm…interesting. I feel like I just saw Cloverfield and now we’re back at it again.

If it doesn’t seem AS similar yet, just watch the preview below and you’ll get my meaning. They both revolve around cameras found after the fact, which tell the story of what happened to the people behind them.

I actually like these kinds of movies, but this one coming so close off the heals of Cloverfield seems a bit much.

Quarantine hits theaters on October 17th, 2008.
