DVD of the Day #300 - REC

Wow. Only 65 more of these to go. I’ve purposely waited to see Quarrantine as I wanted to see the original Spanish film it is based on first. At only 75 minutes, it’s a very short film, but sadly, the first half of the movie is so slow I almost turned off the film. It’s boring setup that isn’t really needed and it doesn’t make you care about any of the characters. The two main characters, Pablo and Angela are a TV crew filming a fire department when they get a call to check out a house. Once inside, the government and police lock the house off from the general public and refuse to let anyone leave,. Eventually we discover why - a fat naked old lady who seems unkillable and whose saliva causes others to become like her. At first I was li,e, “Oh shot, another bad foreign zombie film” but it ends up taking some neat twists. At first you are led to believe it started fromt his little girls dog and you get a bit of amusement knowing the little girl and the dog get to die horribly (one on camera, the other off). Then it gets even cooler as the film builds to a very unexpected climax.

SPOILERS AHOY KIDS

It’s not actually a crappy zombie film. It’s demonic possession that mimicks a virulent disease. We even get the root of the problem and to see her in the flesh and she’s one of the creepiest bitches I can think of in recent horror film history. She’s freaky as hell and very well done. I loved this twist on both the classic and played out zombie bullshit, but also the twist on demonic possession as well. Of course, everyone dies at the end and I found that I loved the second half of the movie as much as I hated the first half.

My real big problem now lies in the fact that both the Spanish and US versions of the film give away the very ending in all the commercials and trailers leaving me to go, “Why would anyone do such a thing.”

Not worth keeping, which is good as it’s a netflix DVD, but it ended up being worth my time in the end. Now we’ll have to see how the US version holds up. Hopefully better than Shutter and One Missed Call

Is it Worth keeping? No, but it’s a fun one-shot
