It's about a plane that is taken over by a mysterious virus. When the plane lands it is placed under quarantine. Now a group of survivors must band together to survive.

Quarantine 2: Terminal is a remake of the popular Spanish infection survival horror franchise directed by John Pogue (known for The Quiet Ones and Deep Blue Sea 3) and stars Mercedes Mason, Mattie Liptak, Josh Cooke, Noree Victoria and Ignacio Serricchio among others.

Quarantine 2: Terminal (2011) Review

This one is a sequel remake of [REC]. If you already read my review of the original you know that the US has its own version called Quarantine. The difference here is that they decided to skip the shaky cam found footage and go with the traditional cinematic style.

We all know found footage, shaky cam horrors are not everyone's favorite choice and I believe that for this US version the team decided to go in the opposite direction from the Rec 2 sequel. In the Spanish version the story continues with the special forces team raiding the quarantined building complex in search of patient zero in hopes of creating the antidote from the blood. The special forces team are all heavily armed, equipped with body cams and a doctor is there to assist in taking the samples from the infected. As for the US version it continues right after the infection broke out. The film takes place at an airport and passengers are watching the news of the barricaded building complex. They are glad they are actually moving away from danger but as it turns out the infection has already boarded the plane.

Once the pilots report that there is a sick passenger they are ordered to ground the plane at an abandoned terminal that is to be closed off. They all exit the plane but several people are already infected and the CDC has already placed everything under lock down so the group will have to figure out how to survive once the virus starts taking over.

What does this movie have going for it? It’s fast paced, has a lot of action and good kills. Acting is not the best, think of a medium budget film from Sci-Fi Channel but this should not affect your experience while watching it. Plot is good with only a few minor bad choices, but of course if you decide to go in full detail and search for stuff that will annoy you will find plenty. Follow my advice and go into it for what it is. A fun R rated 86 minutes horror film filled with tense scenes, claustrophobic atmosphere and a good number of crazy rabies infected people that move like rats and hunt down remaining survivors of the group.

Worth Watching? 

Sure. You can also watch Quarantine 2008 to see how the infection started, but if you already saw Rec 2007 you should be familiar with the main plot (only change made to the story is the origin of the virus). But all in all, it’s a good horror movie that you can enjoy!
