Default Rec 2

REC 2



“THE MOST FRIGHTENING FILM OF THE YEAR…

YOU WILL NOT SLEEP AFTER WATCHING THIS.”


(FIVE STARS) – NUTS



After terrifying audiences with their nerve-shredding cult hit ‘REC’, acclaimed filmmakers Jaume Balaguero (Darkness; Fragile) and Paco Plaza (Romasanta: The Werewolf Hunt) return to crank the fear factor to unprecedented levels with the highly anticipated sequel, REC 2, which is already being hailed as a “leader for this year’s most frightening feature” (Fangoria).

A rare thing in being a sequel that actually improves on its predecessor and exceeds all expectations, REC 2 has been described as “one of the best horror sequels in recent years” (Shortlist), “bloody terrifying” (Metro), “an intense watch” (The Sun) and “absolutely brilliant” (The People, Five Star Review).





When a small, local TV news crew consisting of anchorwoman Angela Vidal and her cameraman Pablo signed on to film the work of a squad of firemen working the night shift in the suburbs of Barcelona, they had no idea of the nightmare they were about to encounter. Answering a routine call to rescue an old lady trapped in her apartment, they become caught up in the middle of an inexplicable situation that rapidly spirals out of control. Sealed within the apartment block along with its residents by the city’s authorities, who believe there is a deadly virus on the loose, Angela, Pablo and the firemen struggle to survive against a growing menace within their midst while trying to find a way out. As the terror unfolds, Pablo continues filming, documenting a series of shocking events that are way beyond human comprehension…

REC 2 picks up mere minutes after the ‘conclusion’ of the first film, just after the authorities have lost contact with the few survivors left within the building. Quickly realising the gravity of the situation at hand, the Spanish government has sent in a heavily armed SWAT team, accompanied by a government medical official, on a search and rescue mission. But all is not as it seems, and soon these highly trained soldiers find themselves at the mercy of an unspeakable evil that must be contained at all costs. Meanwhile, a small group of thrill-seeking teenagers has also infiltrated the building, unaware of the horrors they are about to face.





An “adrenaline-filled rollercoaster ride” (Daily Express) that “makes ‘The Exorcist’ seem like a soothing therapy” (The Daily Star), REC 2 is “so scary it will make your head spin” (News Of The World, Four Star Review).

REC 2 (cert. 18) will be released on DVD (£17.99) and Blu-ray (£22.99) by E1 Entertainment on 20th September 2010. Special Features include: Extended Scenes; Deleted Scenes; Making Of ‘In An Infected World’ (Blu-ray only); Behind The Scenes (Blu-ray only).

Also released on 20th September 2010 is the original REC Special Edition on Blu-ray (£19.99) for the very first time and featuring almost 3 hours of extras, including:

  • The Making of REC
  • Crew Interviews
  • Extended Scenes
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Behind The Scenes Footage.

I hate to say it but I was dissapointed when it got all supernatural/religious.....it was almost inevitable with the hints dropped at the end of the first one.......but when it was touched upon at the end of the original I did find it creepy as shit but when got almost van helsing with crosses and possessed folk chatting in ungodly languages then that's when I lost all interest...butttttttttttt as a sucker to horror home entertainment I might fall afoul of purchasing this :P

I quite like that though.

Zombie movies have generally focused on enviromental or biological causes for zombie outbreaks in recent times, but I'm a fan of the old poverty row, Haitian Voodoo pictures of the 30s and 40s such as I Walked With a Zombie and the classic White Zombie, so a return to spiritual matters works for me.

I totally agree with you on this and think it works very well in Rec 2 roll on Rec 3 after the killer ending to this one at last a franchise that I actually want to see the next chapter to.

I really enjoyed the first film a great deal. It was very spooky stuff and really managed to make unsettling viewing. I wasn't sold initially with the ending but it did totally creep me out so I'm eager to see how this is fleshed out in the follow-up.
