Not bad, but not as good as the Spanish version.

Just awful... The original [REC] Was ten times better. Crappy Remake

Not just another garbage, it's one that comes woth constant shaking shooting so you don't see anything clear.

Found footage that manages to be more tense, thrilling and horrifying then anything big budget...but is that saying much when the last decent high budget horror was many years ago? still a great watch.

A scary found footage movie and setting. It probably won't be well remembered, but it is better than many others. Acting was good. My main problem with this movie was that there were few scenes that seemed foolish. Also, the ending is already spoiled for you and you'll find out why when you watch it.

A mediocre version of the French horror classic. Carpenter is decent as the lead and there is some spooky moments. But ultimately it suffers from predictable found footage cliches and cheap jump scares.

I liked it. Not a zombie flick as many may mistake and more like a "28 Days Later" type of rabies pandemic. Very claustrophobic and scary at times.

A news crew following a pair of firefighters stumbles upon an outbreak of a contagion in an apartment building. The building gets quarantined by government officials hoping to stop the spread of the mysterious contagion. Loads of bloodshed and cannibalistic violence is perpetrated by those afflicted. Is anyone going to survive? Does anyone care? Merely average.

There are alot of B horror movies out there now and they keep coming like never before. This is a US remake of the spanish flick "Rec" and i have seen that one before. This is pretty much the same , perhaps not quite as good but close. Both are just "okey" tho in my opinion but decent overall among all the other B flicks.

Bad story, and... honestly just pointless.

An awful cliche uninspired film with some awful characters and bad acting with some awful dialogue. This is a disgrace of a horror film an atrocious mess from start to finish.
Grade D

No wonder it looks so familiar, as it was the Spanish [REC] remake. I think it had improved & polished quite a bit from the original, the protagonist (Angela) was a lot less annoying here at least.

Disappointing "found footage" horror flick about a Los Angeles apartment building under lockdown due to an unknown viral outbreak. Small details are overlooked (doesn't anyone own a radio?), and the final act is borderline incomprehensible due to poor lighting, overly shaky handheld camerawork, and nonstop hysterical screaming (courtesy of Jennifer Carpenter).
½ October 12, 2014
A great, well-rounded horror film.

Yet another poor American remake of an amazing foreign-language film. Quarantine does not build suspense like REC, the camera movements of the found footage style is extremely jerky and annoying, and the characters are not quite as 'real' (although this is probably due to Jennifer Carpenter's role as Angela Vidal). Your time would be much better spent watching REC.

"Quarantine" is a smarter-than-average zombie film with some good scares (especially towards the end) and characters you can actually cheer for. The set-up is clever, with a group of reporters following firefighters going into a building in what they think is a typical rescue. Once inside, they become trapped when the building is put under quarantine. Things get pretty scary when it becomes obvious that something has infected some of the building's residents, and they're out for blood. Unlike a lot of "found footage" type of films, there are some genuinely good reasons for the film to be shot in the way it is and actually shows some innovation and intelligence at points, like when the power is cut out and they use the camera's night-vision to navigate around a room. The film takes it's time setting up the characters in the beginning which ensures the audience will care about the people as their numbers dwindle throughout the film. This is a remake of "REC", so most of the good things likely come from the original source material, but foreign films are sometimes a little tricky to get a hold of, so that's alright. It's worth checking out if you want a horror film with some good tension and scares (without too much gore and violence) and particularly if you're a fan of zombies. (Dvd, October 12, 2012)
