REC – Film Sound reel

“…Sheer horror.This may be my most experimental film; I’ve never had such freedom to cross conventional boundaries. In my opinion, Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza marked a new style in horror, based on shameless innovation. The fake raw footage was a wonderful exercise of distorting and defiling sound according to the dramatic moment. REC is a film in which 60% of the action is explained off-screen, using sound…”
