[Rec] is one of the most perfect examples of a modern horror movie as you can get. With an estimated budget of a little under $2 million, the action and anxiety from this movie far outweighs that of a big budget blockbuster like the over-gorged, $190 million World War Z. The zombies are terrifying, the darkness and cramped spaces really go a long way in giving the movie a feeling of suffocation, and the action is unrelenting once it begins. It’s gross, and does contain some stupid stuff - lots of zombie kids - but this is an excellent watch if you want to be real scared.
P.S. I beg of you, if you subscribe to shudder, watch this on Shudder. The Amazon version, and many others, are dubbed, and WOW is it bad!
