Angry Lurker Honest Movie Review 77: Quarantine 2 ( 3 STARS).

The sequel to Quarantine which was a remake of REC but not a remake of REC 2!


A plane is taken over by a mysterious virus and when the plane lands it is placed under quarantine. Now the passengers must band together to survive the quarantine and the virus!

I don't know whether this is much of a sequel as it does use the virus story and the apartment link to the first movie but little else...except for the fast zombies!
I don't want to give much away but it's more like a B movie but an okay B movie, it had a small budget but they've done well with it , REC 2 which is the Spanish sequel version would have been a better idea to remake but you can't have everything.

There's no one I really knew in the cast but the virus spreads quickly from one passenger to the next quickly and ruthlessly, you get to meet the passengers and crew and pick your favourites and who will get it first, the initial build up is slow but when things start to go wrong things get very quick and bloody, the effects aren't too bad, neither is the acting and while it just scrapes the 3 STARS (guide at the bottom of page) it will pass an evening and a bucket of popcorn quite easily.

  10. I saw the first one, was pretty decent but not good enough for me to want to see the 2nd. After reading your review though, it sounds like it might be worth seeing once.

  23. Thanks for this review! Now I know I wanna see this! I love it when movies start off slow, it allows me and my girlfriend to place our bets on who we think will die and in what order! And who doesn't love when the action is quick and characters die constantly!!
