Cell Movie Trailer in HD – 2016
Clay Riddell is a graphic novel illustrator. On his way back to his estranged wife and son, he gets caught up in a massive violent attack in the airport. Anyone using a cellular device is affected by some mysterious signal sent over their phone. They’re turned into insane and ultra-violent creatures with no remorse and no way to reason with them.
These people aren’t zombies, as they’re not dead, but they have all the familiar cinematic characteristics of fast-moving zombies. “Cell” calls these people “phoners.” Caught in the ensuing phoner carnage is Clay, whose cell phone battery goes down just before the pulse hits. When people start killing each other, Clay is on a pay phone that is as reminiscently old school as this film’s pacing. Unfortunately, Clay was speaking to his wife, Sharon on her cell phone. This only fuels Clay’s desire to get to Sharon’s New Hampshire address once he realizes the pulse is a nationwide event.
Escaping into Boston’s subway system, Clay meets up with train conductor Tom, forming an alliance that grows into a doomed yet compelling friendship. Joining them on their journey is Alice, Clay’s shell-shocked neighbor who has just killed her infected mother, and Jordan, the sharpest kid in a prep school whose entire student body has become phoners.
