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
Although dramatic, when the film crew, firefighter, and LAPD officer encounter an infected "Ms. Espinoza" and she is ultimately shot by the officer, neither would simply leave her (after being shot) without so much as checking her vitals. This is especially true as this was in the beginning when they are still trying to figure out what is going on. See more »
I can't believe the reviews. I totally LOVED this movie. I thought it was sooo scary. Horror films are my favorite, and this one is in the top ten for me. It really scared me, especially the end. It creeped me out so much, that I had to go outside and walk around in the dark desert night to continue the heebie jeebie feeling. Even after watching it again, I was still scared. This time I was house-sitting, so after the end, I walked around this big, dark house, going down the hallway expecting something to jump out of one of the dark rooms. I guess it is just the willing suspension of disbelief. I can't think of one bad thing to say about this film.
So, all I can say is give it a try. Everyone hates it, I love it.
