When a strange signal pulsates through all cell phone networks worldwide, it starts a murderous epidemic of epic proportions when users become bloodthirsty creatures, and a group of people in New England are among the survivors to deal with the ensuing chaos after.Written by
In the scene where Clay Riddell (John Cusack) sits on his son's bed, he faces a painting of a ship on stormy waters hanging on the wall. It is the same infamous painting which hung on the wall of Cusack's hotel room in Stephen King's 1408 (2007). See more »
The open credit sequence clearly takes place at the Atlanta Airport (Harttsfield Jackson), signs are clearly seen throughout the Delta terminals, Boston Airport announcements are dubbed in until we see John Cusack come off the airplane. See more »
First off, this is NOT a zombie movie. I don't know what the book was like, but the movie is not zombies, it is people who are being manipulated by a cellphone signal to be violent, and nothing but violent. We get a glimpse at the end as to what is really going through their minds while being controlled.
This was an excellent movie but for one thing, it doesn't actually explain why it all happened. So, with a few other clues scattered around, I am pretty sure it is a psychological breakdown of one person. In either case, the ride is fun and with good performances. If you must have all questions answered, and don't like the idea of one person having a breakdown, it will not work for you.
