Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his house and find collection of VHS tapes. Viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be dark motives behind the student's disappearance.

The constant presence of helicopters buzzing overhead was created entirely by the sound team. The production couldn't afford any real helicopters. See more »
When the doctor's testing the blood, the plate changes from being 80% filled with thick blood to being fully covered with a thin layer of blood, just before busting into flames, after a soldier passes in front of the camera. See more »
The first Rec was one of the better horror films i had seen in recent years and because of that success it's no surprise that it spurned a sequel so soon. And like most sequels , this turned out to be a bitter disappointment.
This film carries on straight after the first. The virus ( or so it seams) is still in the building and this time a special ops team and a specialist go in to stop it in it's tracks. Obviously then things then turn really ugly.
I found Rec 2 a bit of a mess. It's extremely loud and at times disorientating with the speed camera work. The members of the Swat team shout constantly and they make some stupid decisions and it's as if they have left their brains at the door and if you are thinking of watching this i suggest you do to.
It does have a couple of scary moments but not nearly enough for my liking.
