This movie is simply scary, intense and wonderful! Try to think about the scariest movie you've seen... now watch REC! It will eat it alive! If a horror movie is supposed to scare the S-word out of you, make you nervous, feel akward, make you not want to sleep in total darkness, then REC is a Horror movie a capital H.

Plot: Some reporter has to make a report on what happens during the night in the local fire station. It gets a call, nothing big, domestic disturbance by some old lady living in an appartement. Nothing serious, until they get to the place and "meet" the old lady. From there... it's totally out of control, realistic and super scary! Everything happens from the point of view of the cameraman. The feeling you get from watching this thing is simply indescribable. You forget you're in a movie and can't help but feel so helpless and weak! Now that's a horror movie! You also always kind of have a slight idea of what's coming, but the movie gets you every time when you think you are off-guards. "I know what's going to happen"... maybe but you don't know how, when or why!

It makes Cloverfield, the Blair Witch Project or Diary of the Dead seem like Barney the Dinosaur or stuff your grandma would film on a sunny afternoon in Ohio. It gives goosebumps! The best first-person type of movie ever! When this movie got famous in every fantastic movie festivals around the world, Sony Pictures bought the rights to the movie, blocked it from entering the "domestic market" of North America and arranged to film a quick remake/ripoff before too many people could see it, gave it a cheap marketing strategy and threw it across the land so people could think Hollywood producers are creative geniuses...

Format: DVD
REC is quite simply one of the best modern horror films of the last 20 years. The cinema verite docu-horror style has been done to death in unsuccessful ways (Diary of the Dead are Cloverfield are particularly weak attempts) but REC single-handedly renews faith in the effectiveness of this style.

Of note is the wonderfully intense performance by Manuela Velasco who plays Angela Vidal, the main character. She is amazingly natural and her performance elicits real tension in the viewer. Perhaps the greatest thing about REC is that it's actually frightening. Imagine that - a horror movie these days that is actually scary! I've watched REC several times and its effect has not dulled, even after seeing the ridiculous US remake, Quarantine. The REC/Quarantine comparison is exemplary of how even a shot-for-shot remake can ruin a concept when there is a lack of talent involved.

Buy this movie - it is a modern horror masterpiece.

Format: DVD
Simply put, Rec is one of the greatest horror films of all time. I wanted to stand up and cheer when the end credits started to roll - it's that good. The fact that I never saw it coming probably adds to my excitement, but this is one of those rare treasures that keeps horror lovers like myself going. As we suffer through unnecessary remakes, disappointing sequels, and cookie-cutter plots, there's always that little voice deep inside our brains telling us that maybe the next film will set the cockles of our little black hearts on fire - my friends, Rec is that film. Naturally, the US had to go and create a remake (Quarantine), but I urge you to get your hands on this Spanish original before you even think about spoiling the whole story by watching its American clone.

I knew absolutely nothing about this film going in - not even the title. In fact, I wasn't even sure it was a horror film when I started watching it. It starts out as a documentary featuring journalist Angela Vidal (Manuela Velasco) filming a "while you were sleeping" segment at a local fire station. As we watch Angela try to figure out anything interesting to do as she interviews individual firemen and walks through the station, we join her in hoping that a call will come in and add some excitement to a pretty boring night. When the call does come down, it doesn't promise much in the way of action - someone needs help getting a door open - but that changes pretty quickly once the fire and television crews arrive at the scene. Neighbors recount hearing screams from the dwelling of a strange old lady upstairs.

As soon as it became clear (early on) that it was a zombie film, the storyline was very predictable. Therefore, I didn't find the film scary at all. I was too busy laughing at all the zombie/horror movie cliches. For example, the tape recorder which always queues up to exactly the right place, regardless of whether you rewind or fast forward randomly (see "Evil Dead"). And, yes, I did watch it alone at night with the lights off. Maybe I'm just desensitized after being exposed to so many zombie films/games.

[REC] is bloody hands down the finest horror movie of the past ten years.
Like all of the best horror, it has a slow, almost leisurely beginning. But, twenty minutes in, the action starts and it's relentless.
Tense, original and foreboding.
