One of the reasons why Rec works so well is the manner in which its shot. Its not the first film to adopt the handheld shooting style, and indeed there have been many clichéd attempts to follow the success of The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield. Yet the style suits Rec well, with the photography less a gimmick, and more a legitimate storytelling device.
Its fair to say that Rec is a dish best served cold, so itd be unfair to expand on the plot. However, be in no doubt that the mix of psychological creepiness and outright horror is very good, making the most of the claustrophobic surroundings, and wisely sidestepping many of the pitfalls of the genre. It has one or two problems, but its hard to quibble too much when the main feature works as well as this low-key, yet ultra-effective film does. --Jon Foster
