Working to expose an intermittent terror, this South Korean pearl brings out the best in terror in that country, with a frightening story and a tangle of scenes that scare people all the time.
6º – REC (Jaume Balagueró, 2007)A reporter will cover a story in a building that is suffering from strange incidents. After arriving at the place, something even more disturbing happens, leaving her and her camera trapped inside that macabre building. ‘Rec’ is a film that made a big noise when it was released, attracting a lot of attention from movie fans.

Thus, in view of this man’s unusual power, scientists find themselves with the only option of recruiting another “scanner”, no less disturbed, to try to prevent the wave of destruction caused by the other individual.
