The television reporter Ángela Vidal (Manuela Velasco) awakes in a ship and finds that she is locked in her cabin in quarantine. She escapes and stumbles with Guzmán (Paco Manzanedo), who rescued her from the apartment building in Spain. They discover that Dr. Ginard (Paco Obregón) and Dr. Ricarte (Héctor Colomé) are researching a cure for the lethal infection in the ship. Guzmán goes to the wheelhouse and he is introduced to Captain Ortega (Mariano Venancio) that is in his last voyage and radio operator and hacker Nic (Ismael Fritschi) that is trying to retrieve the footages in Ángela's camera. There is a blackout in the vessel and Dr. Ricarte discovers that someone released their guinea pig, an infected monkey where they would test an antidote. The monkey attacks the cook and most of the crew is infected by their lunch. Meanwhile Nic retrieves the footage from the camera and Dr. Ricarte sees the girl Tristana Medeiros transferring the worm-like virus to Angela that claims that is not infected. However Dr. Ricarte believes that Ángela is the hostage and patient zero and wants to extract the parasite from her belly to test the antidote. In the middle of the chaos on board, will the attempt work?
"(REC)4: Apocalipsis" is a decent conclusion of this franchise. The story returns to the genre of the first movie with Angela and the survivor from the wedding in the deceptive third movie and fortunately forgets the religious approach from the second movie. The problem now is a virus transmitted by a worm-like parasite that seeks the strongest hostage. The plot does not have surprise, is gore and entertains. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): Not Available
