If you are currently in love with your cell phone or your own piece of mind in regards to our utter dependence for cell phones in our everyday lives, this may not be the movie or the clip for you. The new movie ‘Cell’ (directed by Tod Williams of ‘Paranormal Activity 2’) and written by Adam Alleca and horror-master Stephen King (based on his best-selling book) pits us squarely against our phones, as a strange signal coming from our cell phones appears to be driving their users insane, turning hordes of people into mindless, violent zombies.
Facing the catastrophe in this film will be Samuel L. Jackson, John Cusack and Isabelle Furman, with the below clip only featuring Cusack as he first sees people being transformed while waiting at an airport, his character unaffected as he was trying to use a pay-phone. The clip is mildly disturbing (to say the least) and definitely bloody, but for true Stephen King fans, it is nothing we have not seen before. Unfortunately, there is a Japanese narrative voice over but it doesn’t detract from the tone of the clip.

Full synopsis below:
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 (Cusack) witnesses a scene of chaotic mayhem when an electronic signal turns hundreds of cellphone users into rabid killers. Desperate to find his estranged wife and son, Clay teams with a train driver (Jackson) to battle the horde of murderous “phoners” as the city descends into apocalyptic madness.
