Rec (Spain 2007)

Synopsis: While covering the night shift at a small-town fire department, an ambitious young television reporter (Manuela Velasco) and her cameraman follow the crew on a call to rescue an elderly woman unable to escape the inferno that is consuming her home. Upon their arrival at the scene, the calm midnight air is pierced by the sound of horrific screams.

An interesting movie that is! It’s all handheld, and has a very authentic feel to it. I didn’t know what to expect from it, but it was a really satisfying flick. Can recommend!
