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 xDLoading …
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?Loading …
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.Loading …
