This horror movie from Spain, remade as the inferior Quarantine here in America, is one hell of a ride. This is another movie with where people are being filmed but the results are far to gory and riveting to dismiss as just one of this overused trend. There are numerous scenes which are unforgettable and the lead character is actually likeable. By the end of this movie you feel like you have actually been through something.

Pure and unadulterated terror. This film takes a little while to get going, but, once it does, it's one of the best zombie flicks out there. The film builds its characters and then lets them loose in an apartment building that quickly becomes a nightmarish setting. The designers for the Left 4 Dead video game series could take notes because I was amazed at how quickly a simple apartment complex can become a maze of fear. The story itself is pretty straightforward and this is one of the few "found footage" films that I feel uses its chosen medium well and not in a gimmicky way. The bottom line is that, as any good horror film should be, [REC] is really, really scary.

I was really looking forward to this. I'm a sucker for real style horror faux documentary films and the reviews to be fair, have been very positive for it. But i was very disappointed. I felt they were trying too hard to make this 'real' and by doing so, the seams were visible. Not only that, but the film quickly fell into movie cliche and so any suprises the movie could have thrown at me, were expected and underwhelming.

Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 0.5/2 + Good vs Evil: 1/1 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 + Plot: 1/1 + Music: 1/1 = 7/10 or 70%. [REC] basks in the simplicity of how horrible reality can become. It exploits the old "what if?" proposal by applying it to a news crew's worst nightmares: no freedom of press, government suppression, and a story without explanation. So what would one do if the dead just decided to stand up while being filmed on camera? Overall, [REC] is an enjoyable variant of every ___ of the Dead film with a twist of 28 Days Later (on a far less grandiose, yet satisfying, scale).
