[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.

The SWAT team, police and crowd of onlookers outside the building were real people, not actors.

One thought on “[REC]2

  1. Overall, this is pedal-to-the-metal stuff with a dash of sophistication to ice the cake. I loved it – and I don’t see how many horror fans won’t. As the DVD case suggests, it’s to REC as what Dawn of the Dead was to Night of the Living Dead.
