To say 'Quarantine' is based on the Spanish classic 'Rec' would be like saying water is based on H20.

'Quarantine' is a solid shocker, but only because it's a virtual carbon copy of the superior Spanish version. 'Rec' Rec (Single Disc Edition) [DVD] just works better all round for me. The scares are scarier, the special effects more advanced, the acting slightly better and the tension all the more tense.

If you don't like subtitled films, then watch 'Quarantine' as it works well in its own right. If you genuinely want to see the better of the pair, then 'Rec' wins hands down every time (by the way 'Rec 2' is just as good and a neat follow on).

I don't want to go into a Hollywood rant, but 'Quarantine' is pretty lazy. It's like they thought we were somehow too stupid to understand the Spanish version and as such, needed our hands holding tightly through the production of an American re-make. There have been some great re-makes, but the key for me is to do something different to enhance the original. 'Quarantine' adds a couple of very minor changes, but apart from that duplicates the original frame by frame.

Of course, being a copy of a very good film, 'Quarantine' itself is very good; that goes without saying. If you built a carbon copy of the Winter Palace, that too would be an impressive building....you see where I coming from.

Worth watching, but I just had to knock a star off for lack of originality.

Quarantine follows a reporter and her cameraman tagging along with a fire crew to what they believe is a routine disturbance at a apartment block however upon arrival they find its anything but. attacked by a deranged woman infected with a mystery illness they find themselves sealed in by the CDC as the infections spreads what follows is a claustrophobic and tense battle for survival.

Kerching, the sound of Hollywood churning out another horror remake. Rec [2007] was a great surprise when it was released, appearing out of nowhere and proving to be a refreshingly scary ride. Within a year we have a remake in the vein of Funny Games [2007] and The Omen [2006] its more or less shot for shot.

There's a couple of new additions, extra scenes at the start in the fire station but these are simply padding adding nothing and ultimately slowing the pace of the film. Also the inclusion of the dog in the apartment building an interesting insertion but again ultimately adding nothing to the overall film.

Quarantine throws up a fair few good scares, directly ripped from Rec, the final scenes in the top floor apartment is utterly absorbing and horrifying likewise the pursuit by the creatures around the apartments is suitably tense and frantic. The camera style is borrowed straight from

This 2008 science fiction horror features television reporter Angela Vidal (Jennifer Carpenter) and her cameraman Scott Percival (Steve Harris) making a late night documentary at a fire-station when the crew has to respond to an emergency call from an apartment building. However, on arrival they find things are not quite what they seem and soon find themselves quarantined inside. It is told through in the ‘through the lens’ style as seen by the camera.
The film is essentially an English language version of ‘Rec’ following the same storyline and using about 80% of the same script. The major difference between the two films is this dwells more on the panic and frenzy of the situation they find themselves in. The camera work is more shaky and the sound less clear, this works in heightening the adrenalin rush but ultimately makes the dialogue and action detail difficult to follow [lose a *]. The acting is good but due to the techniques used we don’t ‘connect’ so readily, and the dialogue doesn’t seem to gel that well and it lacks the ‘explanations’ of the original, whilst a lot of the sinister ‘big brother’ atmosphere tends to be lost [lose a *]. However some scenes do work better –from a scary horror manner as you do get the sense of panic [regain a *].
The single disc opens to main menu featuring, play, audio [English or audio descriptive], subtitles [most Scandinavian languages and Hindi!], scene selection and special features [documentary making of, special effects and trailers].
If you don’t like subtitles this is a good English version but just losses out to the original which seems more realistic in it’s portrayal of events, yet is a worthy **** maintaining a fast pace and some gory moments.

Rec for me is one of the best horror films in history and possibly the most nerve wracking movie experience i have ever had.
There was the usual groans when a remake from Hollywood was announced and even though i didn't want Rec ruined i did want to see the same story done in English.
Its near enough the same plot where a tv crew follow a bunch of fireman to a apartment block where a woman has been reported screaming,when they get there she bites one of the fireman and other people in the block start doing the same and it becomes obvious a virus has broken out and as more and more people become infected it becomes a fight to survive for the remaining non infected as the raging zombie like infected try to attack and kill them leading to a finale very similar to Rec's.
As i said its the same basic story with a few changes like more of a feel of a movie than the documentary feel of Rec,added scenes including a infected dog(even though a infected dog is mentioned in Rec)and the big change is the virus is no longer a demonic possession virus but a more realistic one with the crazies having a rabies type of strain which though more like reality the possession virus in Rec was more scary.
The acting is a bit of a let down compared to Rec with the actors not really reacting to the horror of the situation like the Rec actors did and as i said before because it feels like a proper movie they act like proper actors unlike Rec which feels like a real television program and real people going through a nightmare(i know both are made up films but Rec's acting is so much more realistic and feels like a broadcast gone wrong).
