With the camera running, nothing may survive but the film itself.
A young TV reporter and her cameraman witness true terror inside a quarantined building in this Spanish horror essential.

As far as a “found footage film” goes it’s terrific, great acting, phenomenal pacing and a cracker ending.
A pretty decent found footage film. Prefer it over its anglicised counterpart. Left some lingering questions at the end (introducing 2 new characters and a sinister subplot in the last 5 minutes causes some confusion) but I guess that just creates a better run up for the sequel.
So good and gave me spooks!!! Not really supernatural though.
why can't I watch this??? keeps saying "Oops"
