If you’re tired of found footage films, you might find enough good stuff to love about Rec to make it worth the watch. This Spanish-language film takes place in a Barcelona apartment building, as a television producer gets trapped in a quarantine situation with a deadly outbreak.
Ah, where to begin with this one? Scary it is not, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a more wacky or off-putting film in all of cinema. We wish we could say we were taken in by its charms, but some rather disgusting antics in this movie turned our stomachs more than mere goriness ever could.
It’s only the second PG-rated film we have reviewed (the first being Gremlins), but that doesn’t mean it didn’t pack a punch. By the end, we were unexpectedly touched by this dated but unique “killer baby” movie.
