[REC] is a fantastically creepy little film from Spain, currently on the festival circuit, (next stop SITGES!) There's a bit of buzz about the film here in the new world, except I've noticed some sketchy reporting that the film takes place in Los Angeles?

Here's the real 411:
In Barcelona, as part of a night-time news show that focuses on the jobs that get done at night while the rest of us sleep, a reporter and her cameraman tag along with a firefighting crew who have received a call for help from a small residential building. It seems the tenants have heard screams from an elderly tenant's apartment. The entire film is seen as if through the tv crew's camera.

Here's a link to the full trailer on the official website, which gives away a little more, but only in Spanish.
