    You remember that movie you loved the first time you watched it, when you were still a teen, but then when you decide to watch it again years later as an adult you find it really f***ing stupid?

    That's [REC] for me xD

      Editing … Seriously? Even when I was a teen I hated Quarantine, one of the worst American remakes i've ever seen and that's saying alot. But go ahead and give [REC] a try whenever you can, even though I don't really like it now the ending is still very effective.

    So, I was pretty sure this was a ghost movie before actually watching it, turns out it's about our friends zombies. And, as a zombie fan, I have to say: Thank you for this movie!
    It's feels different from any other zombie movie I saw, it's not about a bunch of survivors in a world ravished by zombies, it's about a couple people stuck in a building with one zombie (at start). And it plays out perfectly, it's quite scary, which is a first for a zombie movie. I wont compare it with the previous found footage zombie movie because this is miles better than Diary of the Dead...
    I also like the detail that it all started in Portugal, made me feel proud of my little country. After all we did, here's our biggest accomplishment! Zombies!
    I say that's a pretty good thing to give the world, don't you?

      Editing … I've seen the remake a couple of times and I love it. I actually have Quarantine 2 here in front of me waiting to be watched. I might just do that now.

      Editing … REC was a really good movie. It was the first time I watched a shaky cam movie, I was legitimely terrified. Looking back it's not that good anymore, some annoying plot holes and over reliance on f***ing jump scares (Quarantine doesn't even try to set an atmosphere), but still doesn't change the fact Tristana Medeiros scared the crap out of me the first time I saw her. The atmosphere was really good. Don't bother watching the sequels, they suck hard.

    For someone that isn't particularly fond of the found footage sub-genre, I was really impressed with this, and would consider this the best I've seen since "The Blair Witch Project" kickstarted mainstream interest in the sub-genre 15 years ago.

    The acting is superb, the setting (a quarantined apartment building) really cooks, the scenario is exciting, there's a plausible reason for the camera guy to film what we're watching, and for a change, the camera guy is neither annoying nor useless. This is what I hoped "Diary of the Dead" would have been.

    If there's only one found footage flick I could recommend, it's this one - The American remake, "Quarantine", is also a suitable alternative if subtitles give you the willies, since it's a shot-for-shot remake with comparable talent attached.
