''TheBlairWitchProject'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''TwentyEightDaysLater'', ''Quarantine'' is the US remake of the Spanish horror film {{REC}}. It tells the story of a news reporter trailing a local squad of firemen when they get called to a nearby apartment complex. Cue zombies, and soon enough the CDC puts the place into {{lockdown}}.

Is getting a sequel completely unrelated to {{REC}} 2. Here's the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYiUxvM3W5Q

----
!!''Quarantine'' contains examples of:
* ApocalypticLog
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted twice in that [[spoiler: the cameraman is black, and so survives most of the movie, while of the two policemen, the white dude is the first one to get zombified.]]
* CameraAbuse: And ''how''. At one point, it's actually used as a weapon. Also counts as PaintingTheFourthWall. Or if you prefer, CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* ClosedCircle: Enforced.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Most of the deaths. Some much worse then others.
* DeathByPragmatism: An aggravating instance of it. [[spoiler: Randy]] declares he's going back to his apartment and lock himself in. As soon as he gets off the elevator, he encounters an infected dog and runs back into the elevator. The dog follows.
* DownerEnding: The last shot of the film is [[spoiler:the lead character being dragged into the darkness]]. Or, rather than illuminating the spoiler, [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil look at the top of this page]].
* FateWorseThanDeath: Biiiiig time.
* ForeignRemake: Of the Spanish film ''[=~[REC]~=]''.
* GenreBlind: At least half the carnage could have been avoided if the characters had simply ''closed the doors'' behind them.
** Or actually acted competent and ''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'' don't act like they have even the slightest bit of common sense.
* HopeSpot: Near the end it's mentioned there is maybe a way out of the building through the sewer system.
** FridgeHorror: [[spoiler:The plague is apparently spread by rats that have gotten out from the attic. Rats like to go into the sewers. See where I'm going here?]]
* ImprovisedWeapon: Notably, the [[CameraAbuse video camera]], at one point.
* InUniverseCamera
* ItGetsWorse: Systematically, every time the situation seems to get somewhat under control, [[spoiler: all hell breaks loose.]]
* [[IveNeverSeenAnythingLikeThisBefore I've Never Seen Anything Like This Before]]: Straight and {{subverted}} with Lawrence, who is a vet. [[spoiler:The virus turns out to be similar to rabies.]]
* JitterCam
* [[spoiler:KillEmAll]]
* LittlestCancerPatient: Subverted. She's infected, too, and she's an UndeadChild.
* NeckSnap
* NotAZombie: The cops refuse to accept that the people are becoming zombies, even after being all but told this outright. [[spoiler: The last one dies when he turns his back on a zombie ''he knows is there'', for no good reason.]]
* NotUsingTheZedWord
* NothingIsScarier
* OpenHeartDentistry: First aid is provided by the only resident with medical experience: a veterinarian, who notices the virus's similarity to rabies.
* PoorCommunicationKills: Repeatedly.
* RoomFullOfCrazy
* [[spoiler:ShootTheShaggyDog]]
* SoundOnlyDeath: [[spoiler: The man who backs into the closing elevator, chased down by a zombie dog.]] It's probably better that you ''don't'' see it.
* StairwellChase
* SyntheticPlague: The rabies infecting everyone in the building is revealed to be [[spoiler:a "super rabies" created by an apocalyptic cult.]]
* TitleDrop
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The last shot of the movie is in the trailer, the official site AND the one-sheet, as well as the lack of any survivors being stated in all those forms.
* TwentyMinutesWithJerks: For the first 15-20 minutes, the movie is focused on just hanging around a fire station and doing nothing in particular.
* UnbreakableWeapons: The camera that was used to beat a zombie dead, lens first and hit by a zombie several times without so much as messing with the video quality, let alone damaging it.
* TheUnreveal: The origin of the virus is implied to have something to do with "the man from Boston," who has newspaper clippings about a Doomsday virus on his wall. When the survivors discover a dictation machine in his room, you'd assume that it would reveal the virus's origins and the man's motives, but the speed is set too low to be comprehensible. Rather than adjust the speed, the survivors simply abandon it, leaving the details unknown.
** Possibly they were [[{{EvilSoundsDeep}} too freaked out by the sound playback]] to even try and adjust it. Though, the newspaper clippings supply enough information to piece together the story.
** Speeding up the recording implies that some party is spreading the plague deliberately, at any rate.
* VaderBreath: The CDC personnel
* TheVirus: What makes the zombies. [[spoiler: This is in contrast to the original film, which features DemonicPossession.]]
* WorstAid
