In the sequel to the Spanish horror hit “REC”, a medical officer and some SWAT badasses outfitted with video cameras (of course, as per the gimmick) are sent into the sealed off apartment from the first movie to determine what happened and contain the situation. If, you know, they don’t get eaten first. Check out an English red band trailer for “REC 2”. Not sure why it deserves a Red Band tag, there is blood but there’s not that much blood. Via Myspace.
The highly anticipated sequel to one of the scariest films of all time, [REC] 2 picks up 15 minutes from where we left off, taking us back into the quarantined apartment building where a terrifying virus has run rampant, turning the occupants into mindlessly violent, raging beasts. A heavily armed SWAT team and a mysterious government official are sent in to assess and attempt to neutralize the situation. What they find inside lies beyond the scope of medical science – a demonic nightmare of biblical proportions more terrifying than they could have possibly imagined. Above all it must be contained, before it escapes to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting world outside.
The sequel already had a successful run in Spain, and it’s due out Stateside in limited release July 19, 2010 from Magnet Releasing. The franchise has been so successful that two more sequels (including one prequel) are on the way.
