Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

28 Days Later meets The Blair Witch Project as a mysterious virus turns the inhabitants of an apartment building into a horde of frenzied, bloodthirsty ghouls in [REC] - the original 2007 “found footage” phenomenon that spawned a hit franchise and US remake.

A television film crew, documenting the night shift of a Barcelona fire brigade, get much more than they bargained for when they attend an apparently routine call-out. Upon arrival at an inner city apartment, the firefighters are viciously attacked by the elderly female occupant, who appears to be in the throes of some sort of viral infection. Before long, the virus has taken hold of the entire building, which is cordoned off by the authorities. Trapped inside, the television crew - using their cameras to capture the events as they unfold - and the other remaining survivors find themselves pitched into a nightmare of unimaginable proportions.

Fusing the zombie genre with the “found footage” format to throw the audience right into the midst of the action, [REC] is a terrifying, relentless rollercoaster ride which builds to one of the horror genre’s all time bone-chilling climaxes.

Great foreign movie

Great foreign horror movie and one of the best found footage movies too. Great watch especially in the Halloween season

One of the greatest zombie films

REC is, simply, one of the best zombie films ever made. One of the best found-footage horror films as well. Great setup, with a news reporter and cameraman stuck in a sealed-off apartment building where people are getting infected. Scary, tense, exciting - it launched several sequels but the first one is the best. Arrow always put in the effort to include decent extras as well, which is why I always go for their releases.

Fantastic!

REC 1 and 2 are solid horror flicks i already own the standard blu's but seeing this was a no brainer.Im a big fan of both anything after IMHO is a cheap cash in and just tragic. This is very cool to see Arrow get a hold of it and put it out.A great blu and a MUST for horror fans. Fingers crossed for the 2nd to get the same love 😊😊 Free advice! Avoid the horrific American remakes.

My favourite zombie movie

REC has always been a favourite movie of mine. Seeing it get an Arrow release was amazing.
