If you're going to a horror movie, it's because you want to be scared senseless. In this regard, they don't come better than [REC].

Midway through, the plot blows a gasket and the camerawork turns altogether crazed, joggling us about in the semi-darkness while the soundtrack rings to distorted screams.

The film corners you with the ferocity of a Spanish inquisitor with a branding iron and holds you there to the bitter end.

Directors Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza, rising stars in the Spanish horror scene, create a buzzing urgency in a familiar premise...

Not since John Carpenter's one-shot intro to Halloween has POV horror been this good.

This short, stripped-down, first-person horror picture delivers some brutally effective shocks and gradually conjures a haunting atmosphere of ever-escalating panic and despair.

Impressiona pelo ritmo, pelas atuações, pela intensidade e pela excepcional edição de som, revelando-se sempre tenso e, nos melhores momentos, absolutamente assustador.

This Spanish horror thriller is based on a great idea that takes a new bite at the zombie genre, combined with a different way of telling the story," says Andrew

A well-made funhouse ride of pure terror and near-breathless dread.

[REC] is ridiculously good. It's a show-stopping terror trip through something that really shouldn't work all that well.

A demonic, barnstorming, cinema verite horror experience that pulls few punches, fears no genre taboo, and reaches for the throat with delightful intimidation.

At its best, "[REC]" is a stress test, with genuinely frightening and surreal use of grainy, fidgety camerawork and eerie night-vision.

[Rec] will definitely jangle the nerves. But it's a movie that's unlikely to last in the memory.

An unexceptional workout for the adrenaline glands nudged up several notches by a climax that will cause muchos trouser trauma to all but the recently deceased.
