A news crew follows a team of firemen as they go on a call to an apartment building. It seems an old lady has been screaming a lot, and its scaring the neighbors. They head inside, and very bad things happen
zombie style! The movie is filmed like Cloverfield, with shaky camera work and an operator who manages to keep filming no matter what is going on. He even beats a zombie to death with his camera at one point. Jennifer Carpenter does a nice job acting scared out of her wits as TV reporter Angela Vidal, who picked the wrong night to do a ride-along. The cast is peppered with familiar faces, including Jay Hernandez (Hostel) as a fireman and Greg Germann (Ally McBeal) as a veterinarian who picked a lousy place to rent a room. There are plenty of good scares, and director John Erick Dowdle does a nice job keeping things very tense. This is not a classic by any means, but its good enough if you like your horror movies nasty.
