Storyline

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 Screen Gems

Goofs

(at around 51 mins) When the bio-suited CDC doctors enter the building, you hear the sounds of a self-contained breathing apparatus. However, the doctors are wearing standard gas masks with NBC filters, which are almost silent and don't use an external air supply. However, on the DVD/Blu-ray commentary for this film, the director/executive producer explain that because there was no musical score for this picture, they chose to "score" it using sound effects throughout. This is evidenced on the filmmaker commentary in the above scene, where the filmmakers further discuss the process by which the post-production sound department began creating sound effects as soon as the film editing process began, thus allowing the editor to "test out different breathing sounds" to see what worked best for dramatic effect. One could deduce that the sound effects used were intentionally inaccurate so as to add to the suspense of the moment rather than to be factually accurate. See more »

definitely not boring
12 February 2009 | by (Latvia) – See all my reviews

May be my vote is so high, because I haven't seen the original, however it makes my judgment more objective, because I didn't have to compare anything except other horror movies, which use cheap camera from first person, which seems like is a new trend of all horror movies. And this is the only thing I don't like - may be the movie would not be so capturing if it would be taken in classic style, in other words, in my opinion such technique does not make so much effort from the director to make the scenes scary. On the other hand, due to lack of frame cutting there is very high pressure on actors. Whatever some here comment that they did not like the play of leading actress, I think she was very good, surprisingly good for quite unknown actress. Perhaps many thought that those hysteria scenes were exaggerated, but I'm sure that people in similar situations act exactly so disconnectedly. It seems that Jay Hernandez is slowly gaining his future popularity and I have nothing against it, he has quite good potential.
