[REC]2-Spain-85 Mins. 2009
Directed by Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza
Written by Balaguero, Plaza and Mani Diez
Starring JonathanMellor, Oscar Zafra and Manuela Velasco
The main thing I learned from [REC]2: When a priest, who, up to point where he reveals his true identity in order to save your butt; tells you to shoot the demonic, foaming at the mouth and really pissed off, no longer human individual in the head then that is exactly what you should do. This movie kinda felt like Aliens without Sigourney Weaver. You got your SWAT Team in place of the Colonial Marines, your priest in place of Bishop and some scared kids who don’t know how to mind their own business in place of Newt. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying the film makers did this on purpose; I’m just saying that’s what it reminds me of. I liked this movie. A lot. The first [REC] was one of the best ‘handheld camera’ films I’ve ever seen and this one picks up right where it left off. The action is top-notch and to be honest there is never really a dull moment throughout. I highly recommend this movie. But make sure you see the first [REC] before you see this one.
Paco Plaza and Jaume Balagueró, the directors, dubbed some of the infected people.
Pablo Rosso, the camera from the original [Rec], returns this time as the SWAT member Rosso.

About Written in BloodI was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina on March 4, 1962. I guess that makes me old, but I certainly don't feel that way. I still play video games and listen to rock and roll music. I love movies, especially horror films. I have a beautiful wife who is my all time best friend. She supports me in everything I do. More importantly, she calls me out on my bullshit. This blog is dedicated to her for everything she's done for me.
