There are a lot of zombie films to choose from in the 2000s so I figured I’d choose the one that freaked me out the most. Rec uses the found footage style to give the audience a trapped feeling. The film is really intense and the ending is simply nightmarish. It was followed up with the great Rec 2 which expands the mythology is a way that many didn’t like, but I’m a big fan of. Rec 3 came out to divided reviews, but I haven’t watched it yet so I can’t comment. The first one was remade as Quarantine which is a decent film, but doesn’t reach the same heights as the original.
