If you've seen Quarantine, you've seen Rec. Quarantine was basically a scene-for-scene reproduction of Rec. Not even a reboot, or re-imagining. Pretty literally a precise American remake. Wouldn't be surprised if they found a copy of the script to Rec and made Quarantine based on that. There are maybe a couple minor differences, but nothing to write home about. Both are good zombie/horror films. If you absolutely must see the original film, Rec is certainly a worthwhile film, but don't expect any major new revelations. There's some minor additional content toward the end of Rec that hints at something supernatural going on. But I don't think it's essential to see Rec just for that. The English dub is okay, but nothing special.

Not sure what else there is to say.

I saw Quarantine first after someone steered me to it, then found out about [REC]. Quarantine is good, better than serviceable, but [REC] is far superior … and is the definite go-to 'version.' It goes without saying that the remake/American version dumbs down the proceedings a bit, especially opting {I can not fathom why} to leave out a tidbit towards the end that takes the whole thing to a completely different level and makes the 'horror' of the film resonate far more. I hear that the sequel ups the ante even more and does [REC] justice.

POSTSCRIPT: I just saw [REC] 2. What a fantastic sequel. Easily on par with the first … and it drives home why the American remake is weak for opting out of the "twist" that sent the first one into new territory. I keep reading that there isn't much difference between the original and the Americanized version: that's flat out wrong and misleading. There's a major difference, in context and in the mission of the film … If you've seen Quarantine only, [REC] 2 will make, basically, no sense for the most part. Or, will seem like some outrageous leap.

If you've seen [REC] and Quarantine and don't think there is a difference other than one in English, one in Spanish, then don't bother with the sequel until you've re-watched them.

I saw Quarantine first, then read many reviews noting this film was superior. I couldn't tell the difference. Both films are worth watching, but you with Quarantine you don't have to read subtitles or sit through an extremely bad English dub. For those reasons alone I'd pick Quarantine over Rec.
