Would horror lovers enjoy Rec?
This horror film is surprisingly good. The jump scares themselves though were nothing special, which was a real shame because of how easy (compared to other types of horror films) it is to make well executed jump shares with a hand-held camera approach. Overall though, the film was really good, and we would definitely count this as a “pretty good” horror film, however, it didn’t leave us speechless at how great it was. In comparison to films such as 28 Days Later or Resident Evil, we would say that this zombie horror type film is scarier.
