After teaming up in 2002 for the dramatic music documentary OT: The Movie, Spanish horror specialists Jaume Balagueró (Darkness) and Paco Plaza (Second Name) join forces once again for this experimental frightener about a mysterious outbreak in an old tenement building. Reporter Angela (Manuela Velasco) and her trusty cameraman Pablo are following a local fire crew for a segment of their reality television series "When You're Asleep" when the firefighters receive a distress call from a nearby apartment building. An elderly woman has become locked in her apartment; a routine call by any account. The police are already on the scene, so now it's up to firemen Manu (Ferran Terraza) and Alex (David Vert) to break down the door and ensure that no harm has come to her. Upon arriving at the building, everything appears normal. But the calm atmosphere at the moment betrays the horrors that begin to unfold after the firemen break down the tenant's door and experience something that no one would believe had it not been captured on camera. Later, as the building is surrounded and quarantined, Pablo continues to roll tape to ensure that whatever the outcome of this terrifying situation may be, there will be some evidence to ensure that the truth gets out. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

i agree. this movie was absolutely amazing. at first i heard about the remake but was convinced that id rather watch the original over Quarantine even if it was in Spanish. this movie was terrifying the whole way through. an excellent rental!
Liked the movie...but, unfortuneately I'd already seen 'Quarentined', so this was basically a re-run for me, as this film was almost identical. My biggest complaint was the amount of screaming in this movie. Way too much, and the excitable and manic behavior of the characters was a bit too much as well. Not a bad film, but just tone it down a little.
Wow! Very scary movie. Quarantine was good, but this original was much better. I felt that the story made more sense in the original. It also felt like not recognizing any of the actors added to the sense of realism and distress they were trying to achieve. Really enjoyed it.
