Rec is one of the most original horror movies ever made! A very unique style of direction that in some movies in the past does not work but Rec nails it perfect, the movie has a brilliant story that unfolds throughout, turning from an innocent documentary into a hellish nightmare or horror thats truly scary and unsettling! Theres plenty of blood and carnage and screaming and has a good cast that are all very convincing!! This is a must buy at any cost!
I watched this on sky one night and I must say, this is actually the only horror film that had me hiding behind a pillow!
The ending being the tip on the iceberg but i recommend this to anyone who loves horror. I also recommend that you actually watch this in the dark as its set in a dark enviroment so it helps create more of an 'atmosphere'.
This is is definately one of my favourite horrors ever and is actually going out to buy the second one today, I only hope it lives up to the first
This film is brilliant!! Loved it from start to finish. With all the hand held camera films about now, this is definitely the best of the lot! Few jumpy moments in the film but this film is more about the suspense. Seems a little slow at the begining but this is just setting the scene. I would recommend this film to anyone!
REC 2 is just as good and leaves the 3rd film open for hundreds of possiblities!!
My new favourite horror films!!
As mentioned in many of the reviews I thoroughly enjoyed Quarantine and having seen pieces of the (original) REC this is undoubtedly one of the most finest modern horror films in a long, long time. There is more of a religious element in the Spanish effort although does not change the plot (THAT much) nor any of the scary elements one bit.
Enjoyable and terrifying, looking forward for the sequel and the upcoming 3rd film.
... really couldn't get into this. Subtitles galore, this put me off but I was determined to give it a chance .......... but nope, bored me rigid and turned it off after about 25 minutes. Having read all the other reviews on here though, I might give it another go .........
I had heard about this film a lot before I actually got to watch it, I had a feeling it was going to be good and I wasn't wrong. This is the reason I love horror films so much, I got so involved with this film and that's why I think it works so well as it pulls you into the story so your watching avidly so when something does happen your right there with the characters.
I usually have no issues with subtitles but I have to admit it did get a little hard to follow them when the film really got going and there was a lot happening but it didn't detract from what you could see. The film works the suspence really well and all the jumpy parts are perfectly placed. I would love to say more but don't want to ruin anything but the ending is one of the best I have seen in a while, very freaky.
I sat down to watch this film expecting to be disappointed, boy was i wrong. I was hooked from start to finish. Far superior to many big budget hollywood horrors which left me feeling cold,disappointed and cheated.This is one of those films that stays floating around in your head days after you have seen it. Please dont let the subtitles put you off from watching this movie.
