    Didn't see a thread for this (I searched), so I thought I'd make one for it at the very least.

    This honestly looks like an exciting thriller/horror movie, especially after watching the Red Band Trailer. I'm not sure what everyone else opinion is on this, but I'm seriously considering to see it in theaters or at the very least when its released on DVD (whenever).

    Probable Spoilers. Proceed at your own discresion.

    I like the concept of a zombie outbreak quaratine of people (at least this is what they appear to be). I always figured a real world knee-jerk reaction to the beginning of a Zombie plague would be quaratines... which would only make the plague worse. I doubt though that I go to theater to see it, i can wait.

    The original Spanish version that this film is a remake of was okay.

    Search is failing then, we're discussing the original and have mentioned this remake here. BEWARE there could theoretically be some spoilers in there depending on if you've seen the trailer and if you read peoples comments on it.

    Suffice to say though, the original spanish version [REC] is bloody amazing, and by comparrison quarenteeen looks a bit cack...

    Yeah, I saw the [●REC] Thread, but I meant a thread for this film specifically, even if it is a remake of the aformentioned movie which happens to be the major focus of dissucsion (and might maintain more spoilers than I really want to read before I even consider looking at either :D ).

    I'll reserve my judgement on the film (and the original) before considering it suckish.

    Fair enough buddy :)  It was just that it had been disscussed somewhat in there, but probably safer to stay here to talk about quarentine for the uninitiated...

    Not being a "film Purist" and not always preferring the "Original" because it makes me look better and more cultured, I have to say, that I am looking forward to Quarantine. I just saw REC, and I loved it. It scared the shit out of me, especially as things started to get rolling. So I am looking forward to this interpretation, but as soon as I can find a legal copy of REC, I'm picking that up.

    Saw a trailer for this a few weeks ago. Looks kind of interesting. Plus I always liked Jennifer Carpenter on Dexter.

    I thought this should be bumped. I am sick of watching the trailers, they reveal too much. I am still going to see it, though.

    If it's done like REC, then it should do just that.

    I'll never get people who think that REC was scary. It was a bit boring and incredibly predictable, IMO...Only jumped at the bit with the hatch to the attic.

    That's ok because fear is relative. I still think Ring and Ringu was a joke, but a lot of people swear their fear by it. The last couple of minutes of REC (watched alone, loud and with the lights off was pretty freaky to me)
