The old king of raging fear that makes adrenaline flow (by Tanhausser_Gates)
Watched it at Sitges Internation Film Festival.Now.. Not being a fan of "home-made" cinema I was extremely suspecting about this film. The first 5 minutes really put you down.. I was thinking "Oh no.. Not another amateur experiment please!".. But that's exactly what they are meant for.After you relax and even prepare for occasional laughter at how bad a film it is the story slowly swirls and sinks in you with pulsating intensity and believe me: You are going to jump all over your seat for the rest of the film.Please: Do not take kids with you unless they are grown up <more>
enough to deal with horror movies or you are up to a few non-sleep nights full of tears and nightmares.If you love good horror movies you'll love this one.
A re-introduction to the term "horror". (by luke-346)
REC is a film that utilises the POV Point of View camera technique for the entirety of its duration. It is a technique in which the person behind the camera is a character that is integral to the plot, narrative and story of the film. In brief, REC is a horror film that begins with the crew of a TV show, called While You Sleep, making a documentary about firemen. As the film progresses the crew are lucky enough to accompany the fireman on a call out to a local apartment building.Undoubtedly and unsurprisingly REC will be measured by the film The Blair Witch Project, especially given its <more>
plot and the manner in which the film plays out. Comparatively REC is also a horror, low budget, sticks to a female lead and has an ending that is very similar. Although The Blair Witch Project was a ground breaking film, given its illustrious marketing campaign and widespread fooling of audiences, if the two are to be judged purely on their viewing merits then REC is by far the superior if anything REC is the film that the Blair Witch should have been. It is the film that I wanted to see when I queued up in the rain, 10 years ago full of hype, anticipation and adolescent excitement.Despite REC being a better film than The Blair Witch Project some critics have attacked it for employing such a tired technique that has been used too much in recent films i.e. Cloverfield and the forth coming Diary of The Dead . The method that has been employed in REC is, I believe, a method that is now firmly embedded in the medley of cinematic processes that a film-maker may chose to exert. It seems strange to me that once a new technique is discovered or employed and put to use regularly, people and critics complain especially when it works. Granted, if we are subjected to a recent flurry of films all using similar methods then yes, it deserves further scrutiny and what usually surfaces is that greedy studios are exploiting market trends.The film is co-directed by Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza and they have clearly dipped into the bucket of clichés with REC, but in doing so they have created something that is both fresh and reinvigorating. It should be noted that clichés aren't always a bad thing and when put to good use can give the audience exactly what they came to see. It's true that the plot is minimal and there are loose ends, but then the vast majority of horror films often suffer from these traits, and sometimes purposefully, but with REC it doesn't make the film any less enjoyable. It is also evident from the plot and the methods employed that the film is very low budget, but this does not do it any harm, instead it complements the narrative and increases the films appeal.I believe the true quality of the film lies in its ability to cleverly use the history of the genre and the bare minimal of resources to its maximum potential and, unlike Cloverfield, there's little room to doubt the reasons for the cameraman to continue filming and this is like Blair Witch due to the fact it's his job. He is there to film a documentary and in true cameraman style his instincts take over. The acting on show here is also a lot better than Cloverfield and the people all look normal, some are even unattractive.To put it bluntly REC contains some of the most fear inducing and scariest scenes of recent times. It achieves a level of fear that's rarely experienced in cinema and if watching the film carefully it can be seen how. REC has been made by people that are incredibly familiar with the horror genre and fans will recognise the homage's and the inspirations used, from Evil Dead, to The Shining, to 28 Days later and many more. With such a wealth of horror-viewing-experience combined with inspired film-making they are able to draw upon some of the best moments in horror history.Towards the final reels the film plays like an amalgamation of ideas and inspirations. One of which is the influence of contemporary video gaming as some scenes allude to how certain computer games work most notably first person shooters and this is supported by the POV technique as we, the viewer, live the character of the cameraman much in the same way a gamer lives the character he/she is in control of. This notion is furthered by the different levels in the apartment building, the films use of rooms, the final scenes and several allegories to various computer games including Resident Evil, Alone in the Dark and Silent Hill.For a feature film it is incredibly short at only 75 minutes, in fact it is closer to the length of a TV documentary which is perhaps its aim. I cannot recommend this film enough and have even tried to construct my review in a way as to not give too much away; as it is a film that needs to seen. Watch it with the lights off, with a friend and in a small room. Enjoy.
I am not usually commenting on movies here i rather read other people's comments but i just finished watching REC and i felt i really had to comment, even if it's just to get my heart rate down ! First of all let me say this is one hell of a terrifying movie, i think i don't have to repeat the synopsis several people already did that before me ...the story doesn't seem to be very original, we all have seen zombie movies before. But because of the claustrophobic setting this is totally different after all. It's a brilliant move to let it take place in an apartment <more>
building, with limited space. Also the first person way it's shot which has done before as well adds to the claustrophobic atmosphere of the movie. That and quite few great scares which you really won't see coming from a mile away like a lot of Hollywood "horror" movies and the great and shocking ending, makes this movies one of the best horror flicks i have ever seen. Literally. And believe me, i have seen a lot of them. Hollywood...watch and learn ! You don't need gallons of blood and body parts flying around to make a movie that will scare the living hell out of you !
I was a wreck after watching this ho ho (by teresaband)
There's a lot of these shaky-cam movies around at the moment, and among your "Cloverfield"s and "Diary Of The Dead"s this low budget Spanish movie may seem like the underdog, but it's punching way above its weight.Filmed by a TV crew stumbling upon something very nasty happening in an apartment block, the movie is shot and acted brilliantly, the sense of unease gradually giving way to all out terror. While it's obviously derivative of movies like "The Last Broadcast" and "The Blair Witch Project" it manages to deliver in a way that those <more>
movies couldn't thanks to some brilliant set-pieces. It's not even out in the UK yet and Hollywood have already remade it the inevitably inferior "Quarantine" but do yourself a favor and spend an evening in the dark with the original. You'll regret it, but in the best possible way. Terrific.
This is truly a superb horror movie. I loved this movie so much I had to leave a comment. It has been a long time since I jumped off my seat a few times way too many . It has some of the scariest scenes I have ever seen you'll know what I'm talking about . The way it's filmed helps us to live this "nightmare" as it was for real, as if it was a news article. The "suspension of disbelief" works unlike some other titles I have seen. I'm a big horror movie fan and I must tell you: you have to see this. I'm overwhelmed, I'm frightened, I'm <more>
suspicious, I can't even sleep... It really scared me big time. There's one particular scene you'll know, believe me that I do not recommend for those who are easily impressionable. Go see it. One of the best horror movies I have ever seen.
I just liked the movie. That's all! I was alone in the movie theater, and after the movie, I went shopping to the supermarket, and I felt like everybody was strange, and moved strange. I was lucky it wasn't dark yet. The movie looks simple, but sure there is a script, and I like the humor in it, too. Next day, while having a shower, I started laughing thinking about some parts of the movie. The way the movie is recorded, it looks difficult to know how it will be possible for the movie to go on. But it gets on, and better! The fear increases because you do NOT see completely what <more>
it's happening. That's the tricky part: You and the actors know/don't know, see/don't see. The action and the images are not completely evident and clear. But it can be good for the movie. It's not Dawn of the Dead, it's different, but I also liked it a lot!
One of the best horror movies I've ever seen (by albert_bass86)
This is the kind of movie that you go to the cinema and watch, and then haunts you for weeks. Not that it will make you afraid of the dark or it will make you question your vision of life. This is the kind of movie that is all about the experience, the feeling, the atmosphere. This is the kind of movie you wish you hadn't seen because then you'd be able to experience it again for the first time.It doesn't have amazing dialogues, it doesn't have a compelling story, but still is one of the best cinematic experiences I've had in my life. It's a short movie, short enough <more>
to have you interested all along, and everything is well packed, the pace being almost perfect. It goes from a quiet, even boring documentary from a cheap local TV to an atmosphere full of tension and expectation. Truly a unique experience. It has some flaws but the movie as a whole made me forgive them all.
As previously commented, this is a hand held camera ala Blair witch type film made in a convincingly realistic style and gives the impression is real life rather than actors in a film.Without spoiling too much,it is a classic Zombie film in an up-to date setting that although gory in parts aims more for the realism of its characters than on the more usual Hollywood special effects and settings that most try to emulate but fail miserably at usually,especially when have a budget anywhere near the one obviously used in this film .Do not get me wrong,low budget or not its excellently acted by <more>
its participants, not one seemed fake or out of place in their environment,and the script did not at any time seem contrived or out of place for the circumstances. The viewer can easily identify both with the characters and their re-actions to whats going on around them.I have nothing bad to say of this film considering the restraints of the budget which may have been improved by better lighting etc, and i highly recommend any scare fans to watch this,as although there are only a few set pieces those that are in it are ideally filmed and timed,bit like when the head came out of the sunken boat in jaws-you know its going to happen if seen it before or just listen to the music heh ,but even so it still makes you jump due to its perfect timing-and the set pieces in this film have the same effect. And there are plenty of gore effects between the big scares to keep you interested too All in all a well made and terrifying film set in a situation that,if happened to you,you could easily see your own potential reactions portrayed by one or more of the characters-which just makes it all the more realistic and scary.
In Barcelona, the reporter Ángela Vidal Manuela Velasco and the cameraman Pablo Pablo Rosso are covering the night-shift of local fire station. When the firemen receive a distress call from a lady in a building, Ángela and Pablo go in the firefighter truck with the firemen Manu Ferran Terraza and Álex David Vert with Pablo recording each step. When they arrive in the building under siege of the police, they find the hysterical dwellers gathered in the lobby in the entrance and they hear screams upstairs. Manu and Álex go upstairs with two policemen and followed by Ángela and <more>
Pablo, and they find an aggressive old lady that attacks one policeman with several bites. When they return to the lobby, they find that they are sealed in the building and trapped with the residents claiming for an explanation and dreadful screams upstairs in the beginning of a chaotic and nightmarish night.The claustrophobic and scary "Rec" uses the same style of "The Blair Witch Project", "Cloverfield" and "Diary of the Dead", with the story disclosed through the lens of a camcorder. However, on the contrary of "Cloverfield" and "Diary of the Dead", this movie works perfectly giving an incredible realism and atmosphere to the plot and discomfort to the viewers. The acting is top-notch with an amazing cast and the pace is perfect. This awesome movie certainly is one of the best zombie movies I have ever seen. My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "Rec" IMDb does not accept square brackets
