A flight attendant Jenny (Mercedes Mason) leads the distressed people inside the quarantined building and occupying to spend themselves the night against the zombies .

Now an unfortunate bunch of survivors must band together to survive the quarantine when they are brutally attacked by psycho people who have been possessed by strange and eerie forces . The astonishing group attempts the escape but they only encounter that have been sealed off and try to avoid the bloody attacks .
Horror story filled with suspense , restless terror , thrills and lots of gore and blood . Regular follow-up full of eerie scenes with zombies and creepy attacks . This following deals with the most deadly mutant virus just went airborne , it packs a sinister and horrifying atmosphere by means of shaky camera as well as the former Spanish film titled ¨REC¨ . This sequel to one of the highest earning horror movies of the last years titled ¨Rec¨ , that was shot in documentary style and itself takes place from point of sight from cameraman . It was followed by Rec II and Rec III , Genesis , all of them written/produced/directed by Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero , two magnificent experts on terror genre . And the American remake : ¨Quarantine¨ , a solid film , itself is realized in similar premise to the Spanish originals , it was directed by John Erik Dowdle with a good cast as Jennifer Carpenter , Jay Hernandez , Johnathon Schaech , Steve Harris and Rade Serbedzija . Being continued by this ¨Quarantine 2: Terminal¨ (original title) with unknown cast as Josh Cooke , Mattie Liptak , Ignacio Serricchio , Bre Blair , Noree Victoria , it is an acceptable movie but mediocre , a so-so terror story plenty of suspense , restless horror , and in thrilling style . The flesh-eating infected appearances deliver the goods , plenty of screams , shocks and tension . The horror moments are compactly made and fast-moving . It packs tension , shocks , thrills , chills and lots of gore and blood , but the original is far superior . Well worth seeing if you like videos and shaky cameras , such us : ¨Blair witch project¨, ¨28 Days/Weeks¨ and ¨Cloverfield¨ . It has a dark cinematography and exciting musical score . The picture was professionally directed , but with no originality , by John Pogue who has written/produced/directed various successful films , such as : ¨Quiet ones¨ , ¨Ghost ship¨ , ¨Us Marshals¨ , ¨The Fast and the Furious¨ and ¨Skulls 2¨ . Rating : 5,5 , passable follow-up that will appeal to horror fans
