There are a lot of people who say that we are fast becoming slaves to our mobile devices and in the movie Cell, this nightmare could becoming a chilling reality. Sure, this is nothing new, we have Samuel L Jackson and a mobile phone signal that turns ordinary people into a murdering gang of zombies, but Cell does it with a bit of Stephen King style. It’s not a glossy blockbuster and its not a cheaply made movie either, its somewhere in between and it stars John Cusack and Samuel L Jackson, so whats not to like here?
Stephen King’s best-selling novel is brought to terrifying life in this mind-blowing thriller starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. At the Boston airport, Clay witnesses a scene of chaotic mayhem when an electronic signal turns hundreds of cell phone users into rabid killers. Desperate to find his estranged wife and son, Clay teams with a train driver to battle the horde of murderous “phoners” as the city descends into apocalyptic madness.
