European horror has really come into its own over the past few years. The French have opted for mind messing gore fests like High Tension and Frontier[s] while the Spanish have moved towards more psychological thrillers like The Orphanage. Now comes [REC], a psycho-supernatural thriller about a Spanish emergency response team that gets way more than just a backdraft when they are called to an apartment building. A popular hit at TIFF this year, this one is a bit of a freaker. Shot all hand held and creepy cam style, it’s sure to give you the hee-bee-jee-bees…if you believe in that kind of stuff.
