A television reporter and her cameraman are assigned to spend the night shift with a Los Angeles fire crew. 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 apartments. 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 leave with the news crew, only to find the building has quarantined. All communication in and it is stopped; the only evidence of what took place is the news crew's videotape.Written by
(at around 1h 8 mins) Power to the building has been cut, yet the elevator still works. One character briefly mentioned that the building has a back-up generator, most likely to assist evacuation during emergencies. A pre-programmed back-up system explains why the elevator stops at each floor, and why the doors take so long to close. See more »

You know, I hope that's a wide-angle lens.

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.
