Wow! This movie is the sort of movie that picks you up by the neck and drops you right in the middle of the excitement - literally. The way the movie is shot with the camera is amazing. It is like you are there yourself, being a part of that horrible experience of being boxed inside a relatively small area and being stalked by crazed infected people.
The infected were great, good make-up and effects, and brought a lot of excitement to the movie.
The scenery and sets brought life to the movie. It was so dark and brooding, that it totally made the screen come alive with sense of dread and enclosing doom. It all came together for a good sense of claustrophobia and hopelessness.
"Rec" had a good cast of actors. Everyone portrayed their roles well and made the characters stand out as believable and real people.
This is one of the better horror/thriller movies in a while, and it have a fresh sense of dread to it, which helps spices up the genre. The bad thing about "Rec" is that Hollywood decided to tap into the success of the Spanish movie and Americanize it. Usually Hollywood remakes of non-American movies is crap and an insult to the original versions. But seeing past Hollywood's greed, "Rec" is a really good movie that anyone with a taste for horror (and zombie movies, despite these here not being typical zombies) should watch.
This movie will keep you at the edge of the seats.
