Matthew Martens's rating of the film [REC]

A competent and occasionally clever exercise in reverse-siege zombie-horror, with, at its heart, an Umbrella-style experiment gone every bit as horribly wrong as these experiments typically go. While not extraordinary, this is an effective little freak-out of a film, and the closing sequence discloses one of the neater specters of the monstrous alien in recent memory. I mean cinema. I mean, something.
