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
Remake of [Rec](2007). [Rec]2 (2008) was filmed in the same building, but Quarantine 2 wasnt filmed in the same building, but in a plane and in an abandoned building. See more »
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 could watch REC (The original movie) million times. Even I know what happens in the movie, it doesn't lose a suspense. But the remake "Quarantine" is horrible. There is no suspense at all. AWFUL. The things I didn't like in this movie: (May contain spoiler) 1. The acting is awful, exaggerated. The whole acting is like a movie and not documentary. "Quarantine" can't give you a feeling of "reality" like REC gives you. 2. The camera is way too shaky. And almost all the time blurred. 3. The story is awful to compare to the original movie REC. In the original you can see at least what caused this accident in this building. By the way the building in REC is way scarier then in the "Quarantine".
So don't waste your money for "Quarantine" and watch the original movie REC.
