This is the highly anticipated sequel to, in my opinion, one of the scariest films in history, REC! REC 2 was released July 9th, 2010 and was directed by the same awesome directors of the first one Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza.
The movie picks up 15 minutes from where we left off from the first one, taking us back into the crazed, quarantined apartment building where a terrifying virus has run rampant. The virus turned the occupants and every other infected person into mindlessly violent beasts. Not quite zombies! The armed SWAT team and a mysterious government official are sent in to attempt to assess the situation. When they are inside, they find that the nightmare is a lot bigger than they all imagined. It's filled with medical science mayhem; a demonic nightmare of biblical proportions that's RIDICULOUSLY terrifying. The bananas part of the movie, no matter what happens--the virus MUST be contained, before it escapes to demolish the unsuspecting world outside.
Although this is still a zombie movie, I really liked how the film had awesome elements that I won't mention BECAUSE of spoilers! But just know it's an entertaining and horrifying film! The actors and actresses all did an incredible job and this is the type of film American horror filmmakers should aspire to make. Great directing, awesome acting, spectacular story, delicious gore, SCARY elements--that are actually scary, suspense through out the film and the atmosphere was top notch creepy, which all equals the key ingredients of an AMAZING horror film.
In general, I loved this movie & thought it rocked BUT it is also an awesome movie to watch on any day in my opinion. But if you especially want to get yourself in a horrifying mood, I'd recommend checking it out for Halloween & all. If you're too scared to watch it, don't worry--I understand!
