When a strange airplane crashes in a small town, a virus is unleashed. With the town in quarantine, a family must find a way to escape. Starring Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, and Joe Anderson.
This film has everything a horror film does – action, tension, thrills, and creepy moments. I have yet to watch the original film from 1973, so I don’t know much about the differences. However, this one is very reminiscent of this last year. The town is trapped by the crazies that are infected with the virus, as the family tries to get out. The film updates the original with a modern take. It has a lot of action that’s written well, and the casting is brilliant. Olyphant plays the sheriff in town trying to rescue his wife, and Mitchell as the town doctor is just as wonderful. The film also includes lots of gory scenes to add to the mix. However, it does have its usual plot holes that come with horror films. It’s not bad as a horror film, but it isn’t one that stands out either. It’s not worth a watch.
