Quarantine

Rated R 89 minutes 2008

Quarantine comes less than a year after [REC], the Spanish horror flick it was adapted from, so you get an an idea of how much time and effort was invested in it. Surprisingly, though, this tale of a news crew, cops, firemen, and residents trapped inside an apartment building by an unexplained Center for Disease Control quarantine doesn’t blow as much as you might expect. Hell, it’s even fun. Sure, it utilizes the same subjective home-video gimmicks done better by The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield; sure, said gimmicks barely worked in those movies to begin with; and sure, the acting is downright laughable. But Quarantine is much better than a lot of the other allegedly scary movies released this year (89 min.).
