Rec 2 Lookout
Spanish horror directors Paco Plaza and Jaume Balagueró return to the scene of the crime in “Rec 2” the continuation to their 2007 hit “Rec”(remade as “Quarantine” in 2008). “Rec” was a turbulent house of horrors, a real time video nightmare that gets under your skin. So for the second film, why just not pick up where the last one left off?
That’s were we find a new cast of desperate SWAT officers trying to make sense of the carnage they face in the unholy infested Barcelonan condominium. Good luck with that, or buena suerte, since by the looks of it, these guys will end up munching on each other much like the ill-fated protagonists from the first film. However, in one of the trailers we get a peak at Ángela Vidal (Manuela Velasco), the original film’s intrepid journalist. This time, instead of carrying a microphone, she holds a shotgun. Oh, nothing like a zombie onslaught to change a person!
Anyways, “Rec 2” is currently available on On Demand for around ten dollars, but a limited theatrical run scheduled for July sounds too sweet to miss if the film ends up in a local marquee. A sequel to look forward too, now that’s scary! BTW, here’s the link to our review of “Rec”: http://bitterbalcony.com/content/dont-hit-rec-button-rec-review.
