Has anyone seen "Rec?" Short for record. It was done in the style of Blair Witch Trials but seriously made me scared to go to sleep. Not a lot of films have that effect on me!
Exactly! The end is what made it so terrifying. Glad you liked it too!I really liked REC. What started out as looking like a generic horror film with well know movie tropes quickly surpassed my expectations. The found footage style of camera work is something many movies have done but few have done well. The biggest issue is "Why are they still filming?" In such a horrific situation why not ditch the camera and run? REC has a logical, in universe reason why the person holding the camera is filming everything they do. Which is really refreshing to see. Then there is the story itself, it starts as a typical zombie movie but offers a really interesting twist on the genre at the end which elevates the story beyond the typical "zombies eating brains". This is really evident if you watch the American remake called Quarantine. It completely changes the story at end but still includes same night vision climax. In REC this final scene was terrifying but it in Quarantine it's just confusing as it doesn't fit within the new context of the plot changes.
I agree. After all these years, The Exorcist is number 1 for me. Back in the 70's, I had to see it in the drive-in because I was too young to see it in the theatres.The Exorcist didn't even make it on here??? Nor did "IT"!
Yes, The Others was great!I agree. After all these years, The Exorcist is number 1 for me. Back in the 70's, I had to see it in the drive-in because I was too young to see it in the theatres.
Nowadays it takes a lot to scare me, but I do have favorites. I really liked "The Others" as I imagine that it may be relevant to what I've encountered on investigations.
