''Film/TheBlairWitchProject'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'', '''''Quarantine''''' is the US remake of the Spanish horror film Film/{{REC}}. It tells the story of a news reporter Angela Videl (Creator/JenniferCarpenter) trailing a local squad of firemen when they get called to a nearby apartment complex. Unbeknownst to them, Angela and her cameraman Scott (Steve Harris) end up filming the discovery and progression of an apparent zombie outbreak, which forces the CDC and military to seal off the building, trapping everyone inside. In 2011, a sequel, ''Quaratine 2: Terminal'', was released, that is completely unreleated to any of the {{REC}} movies.

* HollywoodDarkness: Played with. The lights in the building go out much earlier than in ''{{REC}}'', shrouding the cast in darkness, but the lights coming into the apartments from outside preserve the trope.

* JitterCam: Seeing as this is an American production, the amount of jitter in this remake is so intense, it puts the ''[[TheBourneIdentity Jason Bourne]]'' films to shame.

* PoliceAreUseless: Like in the original, one of the cops is the first one to get infected by the old lady. Though in this case, the police [[GenreSavvy are at least trying to keep their distance from the old lady and ready to shoot to kill]] (though not for the expected reasons - American policing isn't as laid back and carefree as Spanish one, and it shows).

* GenreBlind: At least half the carnage could have been avoided if the characters had simply closed the doors behind them or restrained the people who had been bitten. They can kind of get away with it when they don't know what was happening, but once it's made clear, they still fall victim to the genre.

Even the CDC officials, who know exactly what's going on, are shockingly genre blind.
