Stalkingly creepy

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.

One of the best horror movies out there

Wow! What else is there to say about this timely Spanish zombie flick which has fallen in with the recent crowd of 'camcorder' horror flicks like THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT(which started the trend, of course),CLVOERFIELD, and the virtually-the-same DIARY OF THE DEAD? It's an absolutely terrifying effort that reminds us once again that there's no need for CGI effects or anything else when it comes to true startling horror – just trap a bunch of people in an apartment building and let the fun begin! I had high hopes for this film beforehand – I purchased it sight unseen which is unusual for me – and they were all fulfilled during this roller-coaster ride of terror.

Of course it's zombie action as usual, with plenty of jumpy moments as survivors are whittled down and the blood flows freely. Where the film is most frightening is in the suspense bits which are unbearably atmospheric – the bit in the penthouse at the end, for instance, or the staircase scenes. It helps that the cast is uniformly excellent, especially Manuela Velasco who transforms from sassy reporter to woman-in-peril with utmost believability. The crew are also very good indeed and these Spaniards sure show Hollywood folk how it's done – this blows away pretty much everything to come out of America in the past few years. In the end, REC is so good because it's well-plotted and expertly scripted, with the story always unfolding as the running time goes on. It's far from just the typical survival horror movie in which characters are picked off as if on a rota. Well drawn folk experience real terror and we're there along for the ride, desperately wishing we weren't. This film scared me and I loved every moment of it – and can't wait to see it again!

Good horror

This is a somewhat innovative Spanish horror film. A TV reporter and her cameraman doing a report on firefighters follow a call to an apartment building where something is wrong. People are turning into zombies, and the authorities seal them in.

The camera style is Blair Witch inspired. For this, it works quite well. It adds energy to the movie. However I did find it somewhat tiresome after a while. As with all these hand-held camera style, there's always the illogicality of how the camera is always catching the action just right. The other problem I had was how the building was sealed so quickly. Overall, those are minor details. This horror film had some pretty good shots. It's able to maintain the pace, and get to a climatic ending.
