Trivia

One of the major inspirations for the first person survival-horror game Outlast (2013). The game explores lines between science and religion much like the "REC" series does with medical science, viruses and possession. The POV in the game was also inspired by the shaky found footage style used in "REC". See more »

Goofs

(at around 24 mins) The old man at the start says that their mobile phones, TV, etc. don't work but when Pablo and Angela go up to the third floor to get the keys (at around 1h) the TV is obviously on and working. See more »

One of the best horror movies I've ever seen
5 December 2007 | by albert_bass86See all my reviews

This is the kind of movie that you go to the cinema and watch, and then haunts you for weeks. Not that it will make you afraid of the dark or it will make you question your vision of life. This is the kind of movie that is all about the experience, the feeling, the atmosphere. This is the kind of movie you wish you hadn't seen because then you'd be able to experience it again for the first time.

It doesn't have amazing dialogues, it doesn't have a compelling story, but still is one of the best cinematic experiences I've had in my life. It's a short movie, short enough to have you interested all along, and everything is well packed, the pace being almost perfect. It goes from a quiet, even boring documentary from a cheap local TV to an atmosphere full of tension and expectation. Truly a unique experience. It has some flaws but the movie as a whole made me forgive them all.
