Fast paced and easy to consume, the master of horror gives us another tale of the apocalypse, this time through the convention of every day technology.

Some have pegged Cell as a redux of The Stand, but that alone speaks volumes. There's another writer who often retold his own stories: William Shakespeare.

Others have complained that the ending left more to be desired. But the ambiguity works. It's not about the details outside of the lives of the survivors. Rather, this is a story about their survival.
