[REC] Teaser Trailer: A Spanish Handheld Zombie Flick

8 years after the release of The Blair Witch Project, it now seems to be a popular opinion to say that the film was all hype and no substance. Personally I can’t understand why the movie didn’t work for some people; I thought it was one of the single most intense movie-going experiences of my life. When executed properly, the first-person handheld camera perspective is an extremely powerful one, which is one of the reasons why I am looking forward to this mysterious J.J. Abrams Cloverfield project so much. Strangely, it looks like enough time has passed that more filmmakers feel they can attempt the handheld horror thing again without being called a copycat. Case in point: a new Spanish film called [REC] (named after the abbreviation that appears on the screen of a video camera while it is recording). This is supposedly a zombie movie set in Barcelona, following a team of rescue workers called to the scene of an “unclassified” emergency. From watching the teaser trailer my interest has been piqued, although I’m not quite sure that the style in which it is shot looks all that convincing. [REC] is directed by Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza, and that’s about all I know about it right now. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
