31 Days of Horror! Day 24 | REC
Our Community Director Carrie Cates is watching a horror film each day this October, in what she has dubbed 31 Days of Horror! We’ll be posting her spooky cinema journey here every day this month, so check back in to see what she’s watching next!
"Welp. I just watched REC. First, I must say I watched the English dubbed version (only thing I could find on Vudu) and I wouldn’t recommend it. The voice actors were... not great. I also must say I really wasn’t that into this movie. There just wasn’t a lot to it. Not much character development with the camera person and anchor, and in general not much going on to make me care what happened to all of them. It seemed like it was pretty much horror for the sake of horror and not much plot. So much more could have been done with this premise, and lots of missed opportunities for crazy moments. Very scary though. That’s the one thing they had going for them. The thing in the darkness... yeah, that’ll be in my nightmares tonight.
4 out of 5 on the fright-o-meter for jump scares, lots of blood, syringes (I totally can’t watch that junk), creepy kid, people biting other people, and lots of running around in shaky found footage camera movements with limited view of what’s coming. Pretty much anything you can think of that makes a scary film scary is crammed into this movie."
