Kerching, the sound of Hollywood churning out another horror remake. Rec  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  and The Omen  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 ...Read more ›
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.
'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.

This is the first horror movie in a while I've watched that has had some properly good scares. But the problem for a lot of horror movie's for me is they overstay their welcome. Read morePublished 4 months ago by James Blackwell
