5.0 out of 5 stars A true masterpiece of modern horror Dec 10 2008
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now THAT is a good horror movie! Jan. 29 2009
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Overrated March 8 2011
By Corpse
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. Thats a lil far fetched. It was pretty standard and yes, predictable, for a zombie movie and definatly took its time getting to the good parts. After the ball ges rolling tho the movie is a slightly above average zombie flick. The real tension comes when the lights get turned out and then you never know whats going to be around every corner or even right beside you. This is kind of a cheap scare though because anytime you make a movie in the pitch black, its going to add some tension. This is not a new or origonal scare tactic but it is definatly used well in this movie. I didnt find rec to be origonal in any way and thats why i claim that its over rated but if you go into it wanting to see a pretty good zombie movie instead of the best horror movie in years then you should enjoy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that scary Sept. 20 2010
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.
