Frenzied, intense and thoroughly silly horror film about an L.A. reality TV reporter (Jennifer Carpenter) and her cameraman (Steve Harris)—through whose jerky lens all the action is viewed—who, while filming a routine profile of the local firefighters' night shift (Jay Hernandez and Johnathon Schaech), find themselves sealed in an apartment building with mysteriously rabid tenants whose voracious bites can kill and all external communication blocked. Writer-director John Erick Dowdle works up an increasing lather as the infection and body count spread, with the cocky reporter eventually reduced to a state of mounting hysteria. Considerable violence and gore, though shown in quick shots; killings; sporadic rough language and profanity; some crude expressions; and mad dogs, rats, children and old ladies. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L—limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R—restricted; under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
