Attention Horror Fans! Delightful news today comes from those sickos over at Bloody Disgusting: Rec: Genesis and Rec: Apocalypse, prequel and sequel respectively, are underway to bookend the story already laid out in Rec and Rec 2. Those who have seen the films should be overjoyed that these films made enough money to allow the directors, Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero, continue their story of the zombie infestation of Spain. The two film.s are being shot simultaneously with each director taking a film rather than them both working as a pair. It.ll be interesting to see what each director brings to the table individually since the original film.s are so stylistic. This may give us some insight about who has more flare with a camera and who may be better with a pen. Two new posters have been released at Bloody Disgusting simply continuing the .record »
They've received some play here before on Shock in previous news items, however, two clean, large looks at the teaser posters for Rec: Genesis and Rec: Apocalypse have made their way online. Genesis , a prequel, is being directed by Rec staple Paco Plaza while the other man responsible for the series, Jaume Balaguero will take on the supposedly final chapter, Apocalypse . »
Check out your official looks at the teaser posters for the Spanish horror sequels “Rec: Genesis” and “Rec: Apocalypse”. Blurry, phone cam versions of the posters were posted previously. Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero, the men behind the first two “Rec” movies, will each take a separate “Rec” sequel, with Plaza doing his thing on “Genesis” first, before Balaguero takes over on “Apocalypse”, which is due out in 2012 after “Genesis” bows in 2011. “Genesis” will once again return to the apartment from the first two movies to explore the origins of the zombie virus, while “Apocalypse” will reveal what happens beyond the apartment. »
Finally after months of rocking semi-centered slightly blurry looks at the teaser posters for both [Rec]: Genesis and [Rec]: Apocalypse we've got a good look at the goodies for you. Sure, they're nothing too special and are exactly what you'd expect but at least now they're in focus!
[Rec] directors Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero will split directing responsibilities for the two films. Plaza will direct the first film, [Rec] Genesis, which will return to the origin of the original infection that caused humans to turn into zombies. The film is expected to be delivered in the autumn of 2011.
[Rec] Apocalypse will be directed by Balaguero and will end the [Rec] saga with the pandemic spreading to unknown proportions. Plaza will assist on the project, which is expected to be delivered in the autumn of 2012.

Paco Plaza, director of the highly successful [Rec] films, appeared at the American Film Festival to reveal the official synopsis for [Rec] 3: Genesis, which leaves the door widely open for the final instalment in the horror franchise, [Rec] 4: Apocalypse.
Here’s the synopsis for [Rec] 3: Genesis:
The original [Rec] crew are back, ready to submit their ensemble cast to another fight for survival against the zombie infection. This time to the backdrop of an original soundtrack. The new chapter will see the film “open up” by using a more traditional cinematographic style. However, the film’s roots have not been forgotten, and viewers will still be immersed in the action watching certain events unfold through the eye of the video camera. The action in ]Rec] 3: Genesis encompasses the events of the first two films and after the sense of claustrophobia previously experienced. The action now takes place miles away from the »

Anthologies are a long-standing tradition in the horror genre. They’re a way to tell a lot of scary stories where you don’t have to invest a lot of time in characters that will imminently be hacked to bits by madmen, torn asunder by a werewolves, or vaporized by some sort of death ray. Some are good, others, not so much. Now a bunch of horror luminaries are going to take on the City of Lights, in “Paris, I’ll Kill You”, a send up of the 2006 film “Paris, Je’taime”, where directors like the Coen Brothers, Gus Van Sant, Tom Twyker, and, oddly enough, Wes Craven, created little vignettes about love in Paris. Instinctive Film and Reverence will produce the project, which will feature directors like Joe Dante (“Gremlins”), Ryuhei Kitamura (“Versus”), Paco Plaza (“Rec”), and Vincenzo Natali (“Splice”), among many others. There isn’t much in the way of potential plot details, »

Horror anthology films used to be a common sight in Us theaters with films like Creepshow, Twilight Zone: The Movie, Cat’s Eye, and others scaring and entertaining audiences with short tales of terror, but somewhere along the line they disappeared. Asian filmmakers still crank them out (ex. Phobia, Three Extremes), but Us audiences have been unable to catch one in theaters for many years now. Trick ‘r’ Treat came close… but we all know how that turned out. Well things may be about to change for the better… Paris, I Kill You is scheduled for production next year, and the film will consist of ten story segments exploring the horrific underbelly of the city of love. Several directors have already signed on including Joe Dante (Gremlins), Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury (Inside), Xavier Gens (Frontiers), Joern Heitmann (Rammstein), Ryuhei Kitamura (Midnight Meat Train), Vincenzo Natali (Splice), Paco Plaza (Rec), and Christopher Smith (Severance).

The first details on Juan Carlos Medina's Insensibles (aka Painless) have come to light, and now that Roxbury Pictures has come on board and nearly all the financing pieces are in place, the film is on track for a first quarter 2011 shoot.
Per Variety Painless is written by Medina (pictured right) and Spaniard Luis Berdejo. Apart from directing Kevin Costner in The New Daughter, Berdejo has proved a seminal influence on Barcelona-based genre production, co-writing Rec with Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza. Spanish-born Medina grew up in the U.S. and was a vid clip helmer for the BBC.
Paris-based Elle Driver, which has a strong line in Spanish-language titles, is selling international rights. The project's originators, two go-ahead French companies -- Antoine Simkine's Les Films d'Antoine and Francois Cognard's Tobina Film -- will produce from France. Miguel Angel Faura's Barcelona-based Roxbury lead produces, putting up 60% of pic's Euros3.2 million ($4.5 million) budget. »

Miguel Angel Faura's Roxbury Pictures has boarded Juan Carlos Medina's Insensibles (Painless), one of the most-buzzed about psychological thrillers coming out of Catalonia. Painless is written by Medina and Spaniard Luis Berdejo. Apart from directing Kevin Costner in The New Daughter, Berdejo has proved a seminal influence on Barcelona-based genre production, co-writing Rec with Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza. Set in Catalonia, Painless weaves two stories: in one, starting during the Spanish Civil War and running through to the '60s, an asylum attempts to rehabilitate children who feel no pain, by teaching them physical suffering. In the second, unspooling in the present, a brilliant neurosurgeon who needs a bone marrow transplant, discovers this dark past when he searches for his biological parents. French actor Tomas Lemarquis will play a survivor of these experiments. Other top roles are being cast. Shooting begins in early 2011. »
This week we’re going from hardcore action, intense horror to down right cheesy galore. Something for everyone, you could say! Staring off this week’s selection is:
Robin Hood (dir. Ridley Scott, 2010) – This tale of the story before Robin Hood became the thief everybody loves is an alternative look at the character we seem to have witnessed so much about. Showing us how he came to be the person he is in the tale we know now, the story seems weak and almost an excuse to have a period action film starring Russell Crowe as an aggressive lead. He himself is the only redeeming factor, but if you love fights and gore, this will be right up your street. This ain’t your Disney tale…
Speaking of Disney, our next big release is:
[Rec]2 follows the time-honoured tradition of sequels, by on paper offering us much more whilst actually delivering a far lesser experience. The original 2007 mock-doc horror thrived on its simple premise and pared down execution, with a single camera and largely mysterious threat. The sequel provides multiple POVs, religious overtones and a feast of clunky exposition up front, all of which largely squander the tightly constructed pleasures of the original.
Things start well as the film picks up more or less immediately from where the last film left off, with a second crew preparing to enter the quarantined building. There's a sense of integrity in how the two overlap, with the same directing team helping it maintain the look and feel of the original. The second team are a group of Swat-esque armed police, each equipped with their own helmet-cam. Joining them is a cameraman (to document everything) and the shady Dr. »
After receiving a monumental cult following, The Blair Witch Project (dir. Daniel Myrick & Eduardo Sanchez, 1999) seemed to bring this new life to cinema with the idea of using a very stand out approach to filmmaking – The handheld camera technique. What makes it so diverse from any other device horror or thriller films use is that it’s so true and unforgiving in terms of the cinematography, that the impact of realism it has on the audiences increases this sense of panic. They’re no longer receiving an establishing shot, enabling them to come to terms with their surroundings; they’re right in the point of view of the person in question. And usually if this technique is done well, the camera almost becomes like a separate person as the filmer is a character in question, recording their surroundings which means if something scares that character, the camera only picks up »
When we first saw [Rec] a few years ago, we never pegged it for a film that could be franchised. The truly badass sequel [Rec] 2 totally proved us wrong, and we have to say we're more than ready for parts three and four. Apparently so are plenty of other places ...
According to Variety Paco Plaza's [Rec] Genesis and Jaume Balaguero's [Rec] Apocalypse have been acquired by Le Pacte and Wild Side Films for French theatrical and DVD distribution. Does this mean a U.S. distro deal could quickly be in line? Scheduled for delivery in fall 2011 and fall 2012, respectively, Genesis and Apocalypse were greenlit by Filmax Entertainment, one of Spain's leading production outfits, in May.
[Rec] directors Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero will split directing responsibilities for the two films. Plaza will direct the first film, [Rec] Genesis, which will return to the origin of the original infection that caused humans to turn into zombies. »

Spanish gore pics Paco Plaza's Rec Genesis and Jaume Balaguero's Rec Apocalypse, the last two pics in the hit zombie franchise, have been acquired by Le Pacte and Wild Side Films for French theatrical and DVD distribution.

Skedded for delivery fall 2011 and fall 2012, Genesis and Apocalypse were greenlit by Filmax Entertainment, one of Spain's leading production outfits, in May. Rec and REC2, which bowed at Venice and played Spain's Sitges festival, have been critical and commercial successes -- even yielding a U.S. remake, Jennifer Carpenter starrer Quarantine, exec produced by Filmax' managing director Carlos Fernandez and chairman Julio Fernandez. »
It's always nice to know that you're prepared for the worst. In this case the worst being a horde of flesh-eating zombies hellbent on the destruction of the world one bite at a time. And though the creatures in [Rec] 2 aren't exactly what you would call traditional zombies, they're still very much undead, and this new viral video will teach you the proper way to handle them.
In celebration of the film's UK release onto DVD and Blu-Ray, the cheeky bastards across the pond have just released the following video.
From the Press Release
After terrifying audiences with their nerve-shredding cult hit [Rec], acclaimed filmmakers Jaume Balaguero (Darkness; Fragile) and Paco Plaza (Romasanta: The Werewolf Hunt) return to crank the fear factor to unprecedented levels with the highly anticipated sequel, [Rec] 2, which is already being hailed as a “leader for this year’s most frightening feature” (Fangoria).
