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...Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›

You know i say this movie is overrated but that doesnt mean its not good. In fact it is quite good. The problem is that people rave about it being the best horror in years. Read morePublished on March 8 2011 by Sorpse
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. Read morePublished on Sept. 20 2010 by Francis P. Perron
[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. Read more
