Critic Reviews

  1. The template is familiar, but Quarantine delivers the heebie-jeebies with solid acting and perfectly calibrated shocks.

    Worth seeing for its solid first two acts, some terrific acting by some favorite character actors, and a several solid spook-show scares.

    As a visceral, camera-shuddery ride into foamy-mouthed zombie hell, it’s efficient enough -- but if you’ve already seen [Rec], steer clear...

    Dowdle manages a few nice shocks and some neat moments of pitch-black gallows humor, but Quarantine nevertheless feels awfully familiar, and it grows less convincing with each passing moment. At its worst, it abandons realism entirely and flirts with gory kitsch.
  5. Oh, "Blair Witch," what hath thou wrought? It has taken less than a decade, but the concept of horror films filmed documentary-style has officially become a tiresome cliche.

    A modestly inventive, sporadically exciting thriller that nonetheless proves too faithful to its central conceit for its own good.

    It's easily the weakest entry into this ever-expanding category and is inferior to its subtitled source material. Quarantine implies "stay away" and that's not bad advice.
  8. Shame as well upon the advance marketing department for blowing the end of the movie in ads, thus exorcising any ghost of a chance Quarantine had of issuing a surprise.
  9. 40
    Quarantine is a one-note nightmare, nicely pitched to the high-C howls of the bitten and the biters but offering considerably less froth than last year's "The Signal," which mined similar nightmares with far more fulsome results.

    They might as well change the title "Quarantine" into "[REC] 2.5".
