After experiencing what they think are a series of "break-ins", a family sets up security cameras around their home, only to realize that the events unfolding before them are more sinister than they seem.
A television reporter and her cameraman are assigned to spend the night shift with a Los Angeles Fire Station. After a routine 911 call takes them to a small apartment building, they find police officers already on the scene in response to blood curdling screams coming from one of the apartment units. They soon learn that a woman living in the building has been infected by something unknown. After a few of the residents are viciously attacked, they try to escape with the news crew in tow, only to find that the CDC has quarantined the building. Phones, internet, televisions and cell phone access have been cut-off, and officials are not relaying information to those locked inside. When the quarantine is finally lifted, the only evidence of what took place is the news crew's videotape. Written by
In October 2008 Knott's Berry Farm theme park in Buena Park, California, had a Quarantine-themed walk-through "maze" for the park's 36th annual Knott's Scary Farm Halloween Haunt. It was their third movie-themed Halloween Haunt maze, after Beowulf (2007) and The Grudge 2 (2006). See more »
Near the end, an article on the lab's wall has the headline "Doomsday Cult Suspected in Weapons Lab Break In," but the text is unrelated to the title. It is a copy of "Dead by 34: How AIDS and Starvation Condemn Zimbabwe's Women to An Early Grave" by Daniel Howden, November 17, 2006. See more »

Scott... They're not gonna let us out of here alive, are they?
No... I don't think so.

I watched this movie a few months ago. Last night, I watched REC, the movie this one was based on. All I can say is I have no idea why they felt the need to remake it. the original is far better, whereas this one is...OK, at best.
I almost feel insulted, as this movie was a stripped down version of the original. The plot isn't as dynamic, and the tension is not nearly as contagious - as if they felt a need to "dumb it down" for the American Audience. So - if you want to see what a GOOD low budget horror film is like, leave this one on the shelf and rent the original
you won't regret it.
