Great pacing and dedication to authenticity make this 2007 Spanish found-footage shocker a modern masterwork. The film, following a late-night TV presenter and her cameraman as they accompany a team of firefighters into an apartment building where shit has gone horrifically sideways, slowly teases us with severity of its emergency before exploding into one constantly elevating chase sequence – the nightmarish finale is a rare achievement in horror cinema. The film peaks in its final moments, maintaining expertly built tension, and then elevating it to something infinitely scarier. It’s not just about the pacing though – the found-footage element is realised with complete dedication to punky, un-cinematic rawness. No fancy camera tricks or moments of clunky exposition to break your immersion here, just engaging characters trying to catch their worst nightmares on film, for your viewing pleasure.
