When they arrive, they are told that the entire building has been quarantined because of a deadly virus that is sweeping the world. Men in hazmat suits outside the building inform them should stay in their apartments and avoid contact with neighbors. No one can leave the apartment building. As expected, some people have more or less resources stored for this emergency and no one is allowed to go out and get more food, etc. Because Coco and Pipi have just returned from the store, they have more supplies than many.
Neighbors start to turn against each other because some have food and supplies and some don't. The situation is made even worse because they have no access to internet and their phones are not working. There is one visit by the Ministry of Health who has no idea how long it will last and says people are dropping like flies.
Pipi doesn't take any of this seriously and offers out their supplies to neighbors.Read more ›
What did I like? The mixture of survival and dark comedy works well in this movie. I laughed plenty of times and it didn't try hard to be funny. The acting was fine, as well, and I really enjoyed the music. I personally thought it was shot very l well; particularly, I enjoyed the scene where they have a shootout at the parking garage and they only have a green glow stick to illuminate their target. By the way, although it may sound similar because of the different summaries floating around, this movie is not similar to [Rec]; they are both in Spanish and take place in apartment buildings, but those are the only similarities, in case you're wondering.
What did I dislike? The pace started to slow down towards the end, which wasn't necessary. Also, Coco and Pipi were annoying at times. Some of it was a little illogical and it doesn't use its characters to the fullest.
Overall, I recommend Phase 7. It's a dark and entertaining film. If you're interested, Phase 7 is available on Netflix Streaming as of 7/24/12.
Phase 7 has strong blood and gore. No sex or nudity.
Any movie that opens with its protagonist wearing a Stormtroopers of Death T-shirt is pretty much guaranteed to get a pass from me. Any movie like that that's been marketed to me as a new <em>[REC]</em> I'm going to check out immediately. Now that I've watched it, I'll tell you that the <em>[REC]</em> comparison begins and ends with the conceit that the characters are quarantined in an apartment building. No zombies to be found here, folks. Not that that makes it any less watchable. In fact, I enjoyed it more than either <em>[REC]</em> entry we've gotten so far, zombies or no zombies. It's fast, witty, and a great deal of fun.
Plot: Coco (<em>The Lost Embrace</em>'s Daniel Hendler, the S.O.D. Fan) is a typical lower-middle-class layabout, a little spacey, laid-back, a "can't we all just get along?" kind of guy. He's trying to shake himself into a more connected existence, though: his wife Pipi (<em>Ciudad del Sol</em>'s Jazmín Stuart) is pregnant, and he's trying to get his head around the idea that he will soon have a kid. It doesn't seem to be working; in the opening sequence, he and Pipi are making a grocery store run, and both of them seem entirely oblivious to the fact that everyone around them is panic-buying. Once they get home, we find out why: there's a very nasty flu epidemic going around, and the government is making moves to start quarantining people. "For the flu?", I hear you asking. Well, this isn't Wayne Simmons-variety flu, but it's pretty nasty. The government has a threat-level-style infographic that pops up in PSAs, ranking the flu threat from Phase 1 to Phase 6, and as the movie starts, they've already got it jacked up to Phase 5.Read more ›
As it turns out there is a deadly virus being spread throughout the world. 7 nations have been infected. When 2 people from the apartment building contract the disease, the authorities quarantine the building. The residents stay mostly in their apartments, with the men coming out at times. Horatio believes in conspiracy theories and contends the virus was created to reduce the world's population. One neighbor is sick, but does he have the disease? Two of the neighbors want to isolate him in a different apartment...oh yes he has stockpiles of food. The outside world doesn't answer their 911 calls. The neighbors form alliances and battle each other while the world outside falls apart.
Unlike "Quarantine", there are no rabid creatures. There is no real horror aspect. The English translation was smooth and natural. At times the movie is a drama and sometimes it is a dark comedy.
PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bomb, no sex or nudity.

Ok, go in knowing this is a low budget production. However, this is like Walking Dead in that it was much more about human interactions amidst collapse than about zombies. Read morePublished 10 months ago by James M Dakin
An above-average character-driven movie about an apocalyptic plague. This one is set in Argentina, and if you can't handle a movie with subtitles skip this one. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Binky Chottorrhœhia
