The constant presence of helicopters buzzing overhead was created entirely by the sound team. The production couldn't afford any real helicopters. See more »
The teenagers' video camera imprints the battery level indicator on the recording. Video cameras do not record the battery level with the video, they just display it through the viewfinder for the person operating the camera to see. See more »
REC 2 creatively transforms a zombie movie into a different genre and challenges our preconceptions about zombies. Besides, it is more exciting and frightening than REC because there are more actions and more points of view. In addition, the teenage boy plays his role convincingly and the ending is unpredictable.
Another movie, Paranormal Activity, was also shot with a shaky camera from the first person's point of view. I personally find it less impressive than both REC and REC 2, which require the audience to think after viewing.
Before watching REC 2, everyone SHOULD watch REC first. May I also kindly remind you to beware of spoilers in discussion forums before you watch it? Enjoy this compelling roller coaster ride! 4 / 5
