MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 95 minutes

Overall Score: 2.5 out of 5 stars

The idea an epidemic is at no shortage in film in the recent days with films like “Contagion” and “[REC]”. This film isn’t focusing on the scares of films like “[REC]” series and has a little more comedy. The film is setup in the beginning to be pretty interested but it falls short a little in the middle. This film was picked up by Bloody Disgusting Selects who has picked up fellow foreign imports like “Rammbock: Berlin Undead” and “Coldfish”. If you are looking for a film about building under quarantine I would watch “[REC]” over this.

The story focuses around Coco (Daniel Hendler) and his pregnant wife Pipi (Jazmin Stuart), who become quarantined in there apartment complex when an epidemic hits Argentina. They soon find that some of their neighbors are hunting and accusing each other. Coco gets involved with his neighbor who is trying to help him but things get out of control when one of the other neighbor starts going on a killing spree.

The film is very low-key and doesn’t really go much into the epidemic. There are no zombies or infected people attacking anyone. The most action in the film takes place towards the end when the neighbors go out on a shoot out but besides that nothing much else happens. The extras only really include deleted scenes, which doesn’t add much more. I watched film in English dub and I thought it was pretty decent unlike most subbed films. Overall the film doesn’t deliver past the first thirty minutes or so and leave you wanting more.
