although i knew what was going to happen throughout the whole movie it was actually pretty good. i liked the POV perspective of the story and i know alot of people out there prolly hated it but i thought the ending was a good way to end this film.

I loved this movie! I thought the acting was great, especially "Dexters" sister. It was creepy, edge of your seat thriller and I watch a LOT of horror/thriller genre. I will be renting it as soon as it comes out.

If you can tolerate a camera that jumps as if held by a guy with an attack of hiccups without vomiting, go and see it. Otherwise save your money and time

Claustrophobic, jittery at times, and electric in pace, Quarantine is a stripped-down bloody thrill ride that -- while certainly not catering to everyone's tastes -- should satisfy gore-hounds looking to step up their theatrical horror cuisine beyond the usual creepy little kid rehashes.

Quarantine director John Erick Dowdle and co-writing brother Drew wisely stick close to the told-from-the-cameraman's point-of-view template of the terrific original, though they add a few fine flourishes. Full Review

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. Full Review
James Berardinelli
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. Full Review

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