Atmospheric though dark cinematography in ¨Rec¨ style and including a shaky camera by Pablo Rosso. Thrilling and heart-pounding musical score by Arnau Bataller . Decently produced by Jaume Balagueró and his work partners , producers Julio Fernández and Carlos Fernández , the fine artificers of such a big hit as ¨REC¨ , ¨REC 2 , ¨REC 3 Genesis¨ , and ¨Rec 4: Apocalypse (2014)¨ . The motion picture was professionally written and directed by Albert Marini .
