When the firemen receive a distress call from a lady in a building, Ángela and Pablo go in the firefighter truck with the firemen Manu and Álex with Pablo recording each step. When they arrive in the building under siege of the police, they find the hysterical dwellers gathered in the lobby in the entrance and they hear screams upstairs. Manu and Álex go upstairs with two policemen and followed by Ángela and Pablo, and they find an aggressive old lady that attacks one policeman.

The working title was "Bombers" ("Firemen" in Catalan).
The camera man, Pablo isn't seen all the way through the film even though he can been heard and his shadow can be seen.
The DVD for this film wasn't released in the US until after its remake Quarantine had been out in theaters and the sequel [Rec] ² had been confirmed.
During the filming of the scene where the young fireman falls from the stairs, not a single actor knew that was going to happen, so the reactions we see on the films were the real reactions of the actors themselves
Made and shot in real locations. No sets were built to make this movie
The closing passages really were shot in complete darkness, using an infra-red camera. The actors had no idea what was taking place as they couldn't see a thing
In the movie LSD: Love, Sex Aur Dhokha, the shot with Rahul being dragged away from the camera in night vision is done in a similar way as the ending scene of [Rec]
The closing passages really were shot in complete darkness, using an infra-red camera. The actors had no idea what was taking place as they couldn't see a thing.

What are the differences between REC and Quarantine?
REC and Quarantine are, essentially, the same movie. REC came first, from Spain in 2007.
Then Hollywood decided to remake it in English with actors who had more star power, so Quarantine was born in 2008.
Quarantine laid out nothing new that we already didn't see in REC minus one or two scenes and a few extra characters.
Quarantine is more bloody and gruesome than REC.
A few minor differences that can be considered neither pluses nor minuses: The camera gets shut off a few more times in REC; In the end, REC offers supernatural explanation, Quarantine a natural explanation.
In fact, in REC it's suggested that the source of the outbreak might be demonic possession.
Quarantine, on the other hand, has a much more plausible explanation for the outbreak: a virulent strain of rabies. MORE HERE
By the nights end Angela and her cameraman Pablo are still alive.
With most of the occupants now after them, they hideout in supposed abandoned penthouse apartment.
Only to discover that the apartment is where the source of this contamination came from.
They then encounter the original carrier still living in the attic (where she should have been sealed in all this time) who surprises them while scouting a crawlspace in the ceiling, breaking the camera's light. Left with only night-vision, they play a game with hide and seek and both lose.
