Editorial Reviews

From Executive Producers who brought you Quarantine, comes the movie that inspired the terror. A beautiful TV reporter (Manuela Velasco, Law of Desire) and her cameraman are doing a routine interview at a local fire station when an emergency call comes in. Accompanying the firefighters to a nearby apartment, the news team begins recording the bloodcurdling screams coming from inside an elderly woman's unit. After authorities seal off the building to contain the threat, the news crew, firefighters and residents are trapped to face a lethal terror inside. With the camera running, nothing may survive but the film itself.

Skip the Amazon Instant Video version of this movie. It's dubbed. Kind of funny for the first 5 minutes if you're a fan of old-school kung fu movies, but not worth watching if you want to experience the impact of the original film.

Amazon is only offering this film dubbed in English. By not offering the original sub-titled version Amazon has screwed us (and me today) out of the opportunity to watch this film as it was intended with all the actors emotions, and the sounds made in the film. This English dubbed version sounds exactly like it was filmed in a looping booth. There are no sounds from the original film and without the natural sounds that the people make in the background, or the "what was that?" creepy sounds that are in horror films I couldn't get into it. The worst part is I had to pay $12 bucks to stream it in HD because the video is not available to rent. I am asking for my money back. And going to subject myself to Quarentine. Shame on you Amazon!

I am going to assume that, if you are reading this, you already know that this movie is the original predecessor to the recent American film Quarantine. As of this writing, I have not seen that film, so I cannot fully compare the two. However, I will note that it seems the only positive reviews of the American adaptation came from those who did not view this movie first.

That being said, if you have seen and enjoyed Quarantine, I will wager that you will like this this movie. In fact, I consider this to be one of a very few "Must See" horror movies from the past 10 years.

The story is simple, and has been relayed in countless other reviews here, so I will keep the synopsis short:

A TV show hostess visits a local firehouse for an evening to see what a fireman's life is like, and upon finding that it can be boring, wishes there were some sort of call to go on. Soon enough, she gets her wish, as the firemen are called to an apartment building to rescue an old woman, something the firemen view as a routine call. However, upon arriving at the building, the group finds that things are not as routine as they expected, and they are quickly sealed in until further notice due to a possible outbreak of disease, with all contact to the outside world severed. As tensions rise among the tenants, the hostess and camera man set about documenting what they feel "the public needs to know." What they find is more horrific than they could ever imagine...

And now for my opinion:

The scares in this movie are not your typical "jumpers," meaning that they do not come from cheap musical effects while someone comes around a corner. No, the real scares here come from the dark, claustrophobic, hallways of the building and the noises coming from off camera.

First off, not to be a snob, but please ignore the other review for your own sake. Skip Quarantine completely and go straight for the original as there is simply no comparison. Jaume Balageuero's film is a masterpiece of contemporary horror. I don't want to get into the plot too much but suffice to say people are trapped in an apartment building, they don't know why they've been sealed in and amongst them, deranged zombie-like killers are going haywire; this puts all involved in a bit of a sticky wicket. You need to see the rest. REC packs an amazing ride into 70 minutes on a small budget and is proof what can be done with creativity and the power of suggestion. It is not what we see that usually scares us but what we don't and the directors knew that. Finally, the handheld nature of REC isn't annoying, it's crucial to the experience of the film. It places the viewer in the role of the mostly anonymous cameraman and provides a feeling of claustrophobia and that unsettled squirming-in-your-skin sensation that makes good horror films truly a joy to view. Don't see Quarantine. See REC, turn off the lights and enjoy the ride.

Don't get me wrong, REC was one of the best horror movies I've ever seen. But I thought I was buying the original Spanish language version. In my mind, I assumed dubbed meant subtitled. Bad mistake and I never intend on making this mistake ever again. The dubbing is bad and disappointing, only someone who was never exposed to the original language format might enjoy it. But at points the dubbing just feels out of the place, the English just not catching the same emotion and the delivery feels out of place in some parts.

Well, well, well; so after taking the remake rights, remaking the film for illiterate American consumption, retitling it Quarantine, milking the built in horror box office numbers, and releasing the DVD they are finally releasing the real film now that all of the money to be made off of this one has been snapped up by the major studios. Refusing to release a film in the USA until they can remake it and scrape up every last penny to be made just to deny the original creators their fair share of the profits for their work is vile, people. I hope you were smart enough to leave Quarantine alone and wait for the real thing. This is why hardcore film fans own region-free players. Don't settle for a copy of a copy of a copy or that is what we will continue to get. Support the original works so they can get the theatrical runs and treatment they deserve some day. Subtitles will not scorch your precious little eyeballs, foreign languages will not harm your ears, and watching a non-American cast should not upset you that much. A great film is a great film and it shouldn't have to be re-shot, dumbed-down and rendered creatively bankrupt for you to enjoy it.

Oh, right; I was going to review the movie. Sorry about that.
"REC" is a Spanish horror film that follows the trend of films like Cloverfield and The Blair Witch Project by having the entire story told through the lens of a constantly-filming camera and throws in some of
