    I saw it last night and it seriously scared the crap out of me, and I usually don't get scared watching horror shows. The way it was filmed makes it feel like you're part of the movie, much like Cloverfield, so those that aren't a fan of the shaky cam might want to steer clear. It kinda reminds me of I Am Legend because of the disease aspect of the story, but definitely has a lot more gore and horror. Good movie for Halloween if you want to get scared, check it out.

    Its very similar to the spanish original [Rec], but Quarantine is typically americanized in a lot of ways which detracts from the movie quite a bit.

    I liked [Rec] a lot more, but being able to watch Quarantine in a dark theatre really adds a lot to the experience

    I didn't like Quarantine at all. It wasn't just the first person shooting, I realized the necessity and niche of that but overall I thought the movie was not very good and felt alot like Cloverfield but with a different "monster"

    It sucked. The chick got really annoying towards the end, and there were moments that were unintentionally funny (like the child zombie).

    I expected to jump out of my seat at least once, and nothing happened. Disappointing.

    So (for someone who will never see this movie) what are the quarantined people? Are they zombies? Are the monster-like? Spoil it.

    Rabies that leads to zombification and a monster-looking dude at the end. But it's a monster midget.

    Can't believe you guys think it sucked. But whatever, I liked it and it scared the crap out of me.

    I want to see it, but I'll wait for the dvd release. I'll watch REC too, since I love these types of movies. Sucks that Netflix doesn't have it.

    Rec was far better, just wish either movie would have elaborated more on what they really were, since in each movie they were different things

    I don't think it was too bad. It wasn't scary at all, but it was an okay movie.

    It was a let down. Everyone was laughing the majority of the time. Wasn't worth the money I spent. Plus they stole my name :rofl:

    REC was the same damn thing!

    Same story
    Same characters
    Same shaky cam
    Same scrawny zombie at the end, except in [REC] it had nasty looking titties.
    Pretty much the same everything!

    The only differences were the actors and special effects, both of which were still fairly similar between the two movies.

    If I'm wrong then please feel free to elaborate.
