A landmark in modern Spanish horror cinema set almost entirely in a towering apartment complex, [REC] is both the most viscerally intense zombie siege roller-coaster in eons and perhaps the scariest found-footage film ever made – a rare one that employs everything about the format’s language to conjure the most ferociously experiential work imaginable, reaching levels of panic and hysteria that words cannot describe. Fantasia’s North American Premiere of the film continued our journey with both its creators, Jaume Balagueró’s debut THE NAMELESS and Paco Plaza’s first feature SECOND NAME having both had their North American launches at the festival, the former winning a jury award for Best Director. [REC]’s 2008 Fantasia screening won two audience awards, including one for the most groundbreaking film of the festival. It went on to spawn three sequels and a U.S. remake, but this is the one you need to see/revisit/be pulverized by. The way it comes to life in front of an audience is truly remarkable.
Submerge yourselves in the dark depths of Bustillo & Maury’s new found-footage horror film.
A videotape transmits a curse that kills in seven days, in this instant classic that influenced world horror cinema for over a decade.
