R is for [•REC]

I cannot mention Quarantine without mentioning its Spanish predecessor [REC] – it’s a great film and if you haven’t seen it, consider giving it a try! Fabulous!

[REC] turns on a young TV reporter and her cameraman who cover the night shift at the local fire station. Receiving a call from an old lady trapped in her house, they reach her building to hear horrifying screams — which begin a long nightmare and a uniquely dramatic TV report.

My Rating: A

Interesting Fact: During the filming of the scene where the young fireman falls from the stairs, not a single actor knew that was going to happen, so the reactions we see on the films were the real reactions of the actors themselves.

Honourable Mentions for the letter R: The Resident Evil Franchise, Re-Animator, Return of the Living Dead

And now it’s time for the trailer!

  1. This is one of those films I’ve intended watching and never managed to get around to it. I might have to give it a try. Good theme for your A to Z. And good to have tomorrow off. 🙂

Get in on the action!
