[REC]4 - Apocalypse - Review

featured

I saw the original [REC] at TIFF many years ago. It still stands out as an original movie that was scary and had you at the edge of your seat till the very last scene, an ending that all fans of horror loved. It was one of the first films to use the first person, POV horror which has been used in several horror movies since. Fast forward to [REC]4, I found the film was not as scary as I expected, perhaps ditching the POV style to the subjective view had a hand in that. I found it to be more an action horror than the first installments. It was definitely very fast paced, story was tight and there almost no dull moment from the get go. The enclosed spaces of the ship could have been used more but its easy to imagine the difficulty in shooting a film in that environment.

3.5/5
