Acceptable sequel full of eerie scenes with zombies and exorcisms, 7 January 2011
Author: ma-cortes

This following packs a sinister and horrifying atmosphere by means of shaky camera and videotape as well as the first part . The scary tale deals with the medical Dr. Owen (Mellor) who leads a GEO team inside the quarantined building located in Barcelona , in which communication means have been cut-off and police agents are not relaying information to those closed inside. They are attacked by the zombie-like creatures and Dr. Owen locks a zombie inside a room utilizing a crucifix. Owen wants to obtain a blood sample from the girl Medeiros to develop an antidote . Owen and his cameraman occupying to spend themselves the night against the zombies . There , they find residents already in the scenario have been possessed by strange demoniac forces . After that , three adolescents go into the building and are brutally attacked by psycho people ; they soon learn that people living in the building has been infected by something unknown. They attempt the getaway but they only encounter that have been sealed off. But Dr Owen is actually a priest who is sent by the Vatican to save the mankind , he discloses a patient possessed by the evil and by means of exorcisms he tries to avoid the bloody attacks . Later on , they meet the TV journalist named Angela Vidal(Manuela Velasco) .

This sequel to one of the highest earning horror movies of the last years titled ¨Rec¨ is realized in similar premise to original that is remade by an American adaptation, titled ¨Quarantine¨ directed by John Erick with Jennifer Carpenter, Jay Hernandez and Steve Harris . It's a solid movie , a terror story plenty of suspense, restless horror, and in documentary style. Film itself takes place from point of sight from cameraman. The flesh-eating zombies appearance deliver the goods plenty of screams, shocks and tension .The horror moments are compactly made and fast moving . It packs tension, shocks, thrills,chills and lots of gore and blood , but the original is far superior . Well worth seeing if you like shaky cameras, such us ¨Blair witch project¨, ¨28 Days/Weeks¨ and ¨Cloverfield¨ . The picture produced by Julio Fernandez (Filmax Productions) is well directed by Jaume Balaguero (Fragiles, Darkness, Nameless) and Paco Plaza (Romasanta, Second name), two magnificent experts on terror genre . Both of whom are directing the third part (in pre-production) titled ¨Rec, Genesis¨ with similar crew , actors(Manuela Velasco) and director of photography(Pablo Rosso). Rating : 6'5 , passable following that appeal to horror fans .
