This one's a bit of a curate's egg for me to be honest.

I've been searching for a really scary horror film that creeps me out the same way classic Asian horror films and "Blair Witch" did. I've been true-fright-free now for a couple of years and the current celluloid trend for questionable torture-porn/gore-no is something I deliberately choose to avoid.
Anyway, after several recommendations I arrived at "Rec"

Yes, admittedly the PoV thing is generally overdone. Personally I can never see any reason for a character continuing to film in situations of fear and terror and as we see more films using this technique the more tenuous it becomes as a device. Surely it would be the last thing on your mind but finally here we have a film where the continuation of filming is 90% believable. "Rec" starts as a documentary until things start to go downhill. The inclusion of real TV presenter Manuela Velasco as the main character (Angela) is clever but obviously means little to those of us who don't watch Spanish television.
As events take a turn for the worse, Angela's insistent demands (for the unseen Pablo) to "keep filming" are reason enough to keep the PoV going. Later on several static, accidental and incidental shots reinforce this illusion effectively and later still the camera becomes a tool rather than just our surrogate eye.

So having effectively conquered the "keep filming" issue Rec is free to indulge itself and to crank up the tension. Sadly (for me) after an intial peak I found the survival horror element slightly less than original and in danger of becoming "same old, same old". I actually caught myself thinking "oh no..not xxxxxxx again".
It's probably all my fault for being too old and having seen far too many films of this genre already.

The film really different to a usual American Horror. First of all it isn't American, its Spanish, however, don't let this put you off. It does have English subtitles. I don't speak a word of Spanish and it is still one of my favorite horror movies of all time. At this low price and on Blu-ray it is a steal and a great film to add to your horror collection!

Whilst the roots of the 'hand held horror' film can be traced back as far as Cannibal Holocaust it was The Blair Witch Project that kicked started the craze properly.
After the phenomenal success of BWP a slew of horror films such as Cloverfield, Paranormal Activity and Diary of The Dead littered the video stores but for me REC is the best of the bunch.
Don't be put off by the fact that it's Spanish and with subtitles (unless you understand fluent Spanish which means you should enjoy the film even more).
Whilst filmed on a budget it does not show and all of the cast perform superbly.
It's a short film (77 minutes) with a fairly slow build up but those final 20 minutes or so are quite terrifying.
Watched under the right circumstances (at night, with the lights off, the sound up loud and preferably on your own) this film will scare the crap out of you.
I watched it during the middle of the day and it still had me jumping and I'm a veteran horror film watcher of over 40 years.
Highly recommended. Just don't be tempted to watch the US remake entitled "Quarantine". The original version is far superior.

I've seen Rec around several times so I finally took the plunge a bought it on the strength of the comments on the cover.

Not a bad short story actually. Not fantastic either but I'm happy enough for it to have a place in my collection. Basically, it's another amateur filming style chiller ala Cloverfield, Paranormal Activity, Blairwitch only this time, it's two person documentary team trying to follow firemen on a typical night. Of course, it goes a bit wrong and zombies get involved. It happens all the time...

It is quite scary in places but I didn't find it had the same full-on effect that Paranormal Activity had on me. Again, watching this in a darkened room too. It doesn't quite live up to the 'The scariest film ever' claim from the ever fantastic, News of the World, in my book.

On the Blu-Ray front, picture quality is good but the real strength comes from the use of HD audio, it's fantastic. Very immersive.

Subs: English

Languages: Spanish DTS-HD Master 5.1

One of the best zombie films I've seen recently, this manages to create an claustrophobic and gripping film that is a classic in it's own right. The idea behind it is original enough to be interesting and is very well crafted as a 'found footage' film, which adds to it's claustrophobic feel. It also has one of the most intense climaxes I've ever seen, without spamming the jump-scares that so plague modern horror films.

As a Spanish film, the subtitles may discourage some, but stick with it and you may well be amazed by it. For the zombie connoisseur, this is a must-see.

Sadly, Rec 2 was nowhere near as good and starts becoming slightly ridiculous, and Rec 3 is so bad it's like an obscene parody of itself, so I'd recommend that you watch this as a standalone film. Likewise, the American remakes are absolutely awful, don't even consider bothering with them.
