So long ago, I watched [REC] which I enjoyed even though it was still nothing really mind-blowing. So, I had rather low expectations concerning this American remake as must of them are just a plain waste of time. Eventually, it was not bad at all and definitely one of the best horror remakes I have seen. Indeed, it is really faithful to the original and even though I knew exactly what would happen, I was on the edge of my seat during the whole thing. The fact was it was so faithful was actually also its curse, as a matter of fact. Indeed, it is basically a replicate of the Spanish version and they didn't add anything new to the whole thing. So, even though it is a decent and entertaining remake, it is and remains rather useless. The funny thing is that even though it is a remake, most of the viewers didn't know or didn't care and it was eventually financially more successful than the (better) original... That's how it goes in Hollywood, unfortunately. Still, it remains a very well made remake and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
