Product Description

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 runs rampant. What they find inside lies beyond the scope of medical science – a demonic nightmare more terrifying than they could possibly imagine.

Amazon.com

Picking up just moments after the events in 2007's [Rec], this 2009 sequel to the Spanish contagion chiller fires up the same shaky-cam scare engine that made its predecessor so nerve-rattling, while expanding on a hint of supernatural ambiguity dropped at the tail end of the first picture. This time, viewers accompany a special police unit into the contaminated building as they attempt to control the viral outbreak that turned the occupants into bloodthirsty lunatics. There's an official from the Ministry of Health along for the ride, but he's soon revealed to be a man of the cloth--and the mission turns from containment to a hunt for the young girl who was the source of the outbreak. What follows is the same high-octane POV terrorfest that made [Rec], as well as its American remake, Quarantine, one of the most heart-stopping horror titles of the new millennium; the exploration of the virus's possible diabolical origins may not sit well with audiences hoping for simple zombie/virus action, though it does provide for some genuinely shocking moments, as well as a surprise return from one of the original [Rec] cast. Writer-directors Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza again prove that they're among the most inventive and energetic filmmakers working in the genre; two sequels are reportedly already in the works. --Paul Gaita

Big horror fan must!
Rebecca Barrientos
This is supposed to be a real-time camera feed, which worked in the first film given it was a singular source.
Ragman
I still liked all the twists and turns the movie took and i recommend it...it's just not what I expected.

Wow. Rarely is a sequel actually better than the original. Especially in the Horror genre where cliches are prevalent and you can't scare people twice with the same tactic. [REC]2 succeeds in all these areas. By introducing more characters, with more action, and more points of view, it surpasses the original. Unlike other "shaky cam" horror movies, [Rec]2 requires the viewer to think after each sequence. Its a great movie. I'll be surprised if the third installment can beat this, although after the huge success of these movies, I think a third is inevitable. This DVD is great. The picture is crystal clear, and the subtitles are perfect. IT IS IN SPANISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES. And the deleted scenes have English subtitles. I've seen other versions of this movie on DVD, and this is the only one with English subtitles on the deleted scenes. And to clear up any remaining confusion, the DVD is NTSC format and all-region so it will play in North America.

Generally I try to avoid sequels now, as they are for the most part ripoffs. Lazy cash-grabs. As for remakes, well, there isn't a good reason to see one unless the filmmaker's do something different with the material or add to it and make it more interesting in some way. But, of course they don't most times. Also it matters which film is being remade! In other words, I don't like sequels and I don't like remakes.

There are always exceptions to everything, however, and [REC]2 is an example of a sequel that I enjoyed thoroughly. It manages to be non-stop action but without skimping on story at all. There is plenty of eerie atmosphere and a few jump scares. As a sequel should do, it gives us information about what happened to characters that survived the original and also furthered the story, filling in some of the mystery around the first story.

In [REC]2, we follow a group of SWAT team members as they are sent into a quarantined apartment building where a viral outbreak has spread and killed most, turning residents into crazed, violent lunatics. The virus is described as a derivation of rabies. That's about all you should know about the plot going in. I don't want to ruin it for you. Let me say, though, that there are some surprises regarding the virus and it's origins as well as some of the people trying to get in and out of the building and their motives. However, this film does not hinge on plot twists, which is refreshing.

The style in which this film was shot is terrific. It's done in much the same way as the first, only BETTER, as they improved their techniques. It's easier to watch, with less shaky, jerking camera and there's more light so you can tell what's happening easier. These things make it scarier and more intense.

I had low expectations story wise for this sequel. I loved the first film. REC 2 takes us through familiar territory for about a half-hour: lots of searching the building. However, there is a religious element to the film that I thought made it more interesting instead of being tacked on. This movie (I state this I think without ruining the film) physiologizes (if that's a word) religious prophecies into an action movie. Very well done. After the religious undertones are established, the plot remains pretty predictable until the last few minutes. The characters again confront the skinny girl from REC using nightvision, but once that scene is established, it takes a surprising and interesting turn.

If you liked the first film, you will enjoy this, but I have to say, considering the first half hour of the film moved in the same way REC did, as well as sort-of re-establishing REC's story, seeing REC before seeing REC 2 isn't a must. Still a great film and gets 5 stars from me.

Holy cow - this one was even scarier than the 1st movie. Watching it was kinda like torture... had to turn the volume off multiple times to keep my sanity...

Seriously, the folks who made this move should be locked up - how can someone think up such horrible, scary stuff... Fantastically, scary.

I mean scary on another level... dang...

I love zombie/sickness movies but, this one w/ the religious slant to it just creeped me out!!! Acting was fantastic - just like the 1st movie and the priest in this one - was just great... the casting was perfect... wow...

I knew better than to watch this flick but, I had to... someday, I'll probably watch it again... I don't know if you can make a scarier movie...

This movie picks up right after Rec, by about 3 minutes or so into the movie you realize that this movie is taking place immediately after the first movie, worry not, that is by no means any sort of spoiler. The movie picks up and continues the story, then it jumps around for awhile, same time frame, different perspective. Their is no english language speaking option, but their is english subtitles option. You really need to see Rec before Rec2 or you may spend some time asking, "Ok what is going on". If you have seen Rec this movie will expand so that by the end you will know alot more about what is going on.

I was worried about a sequel being made for REC at first since sequels tend to fall far short of what their predecessors managed to pull off, but REC2 is one of those rare types that actually deliver what they promise, and what was promised in this case was something truly refreshing to the zombie/viral outbreak sub-genre.

There have been countless well made movies that have used the basic plot structure and become classics in the eyes of many. However the truth is undeniable; the structure cannot be expected to last forever no matter how effective it has been in the past, so sooner or later it is going to become stale and movies following it to the letter will never stand out on thier own.

REC2 removes itself from what is expected and instead treads into new territory that helps avoid the "been-there, done-that" type of reaction from viewers. There are some individual characteristics that are sort of shared in between here and there, but REC2 combined ideas and themes from seveal types of movies an it ended up presenting them in an intelligent way that none of them had really been used before on their own in the manner. The product has evolved into something completely different in its own right while maintaining just enough balance for things to remain intresting and within some sense of believability.

Quarantine fell victim to the use of cliches that we have mostly seen before, it gave us an explanation surrounding the chaos that prevented it from becoming a memorable film. It left cliches to remain cliches and unfortunately originallity is an aspect that is equally important for any film to be if the people making it truly want it to be successful and not catagorized as just another clone nowadays. Hopefully any additional REC films will be thought out as well as these two have been because so far they seem to have made it past the dreaded hurdle that so many other sequels have failed to get over.
