Finally got round to watching this, the Spanish original, after lazily watching the American remake (Quarantine) first.

What a brilliant modern horror film REC is.
I can’t remember seeing a more realistic cast reaction to what unfolds in any other film. It really does feel real for the most part. The acting is very authentic, it looks great and it is horrifyingly frightening. If you are looking for a scary movie to watch on Halloween you can’t go wrong with REC.
Once again foreign speaking horror trumps what Hollywood is putting out in terms of scares, acting and sheer imagination, and REC is without doubt a film that will stay with you and haunt your nightmares.
REC deserves to be spoken of in the same breath as Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity and Grave Encounters when it comes to found footage horror.
