Yet another movie not screened for critics?

Quarantine, a horror movie produced by Screen Gems, opens today, and as of this morning, there are only four reviews posted at Rotten Tomatoes — none of them by major outlets — and no reviews whatsoever at Metacritic. So, it looks like this is another one for the “no advance press screenings” file.

    Sure, it’s not screened, but who in their right mind would have seen the commercials and said anything other than “This will be awful.”
