Quarantine

By Clark Collis (EW)




In this remake of the 2007 Spanish horror movie REC, a TV reporter (Jennifer Carpenter) accompanies firefighters on a routine nighttime call. They are soon surrounded by, or turn into, hungry-for-human-flesh plague victims. Quarantine director John Erick Dowdle and co-writing brother Drew wisely stick close to the told-from-the-cameraman's point-of-view template of the terrific original, though they add a few fine flourishes. For instance, we discover that while the camera may not lie, it can make a virus-ridden zombie lie down รข€” if you bludgeon a fiend in the face with it enough times. B+

Quarantine, yet another pseudo-documentary horror movie, In some ways 'Quarantine' is better than 'Rec,' not only xeroxing all its shocks but managing to add more. For more review & and wallpaper click the link:-
