I have yet to see [REC 2], but I thought the first one was great! The American remake was pretty much a shot for shot carbon copy of the original film, only it was in English. The sequel is set to be released in Spanish theaters next month, the trailer for the sequel has been released and I really like what I've seen. Now the directors of the films, Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza are already thinking about a third [REC] film.
We swore we wouldn't make second one, but I think we want to make it. Maybe next year we are here with a third? I don't know.
So it looks like we might just end up getting a third [REC] zombie film in 2010.
For [REC 2] the directors stick to the same claustrophobic concept, but find new means of transferring fear from the screen to the spectator through the recording lens. The action continues from [Rec], with the medical officer and a SWAT team outfitted with video cameras are sent into the sealed off apartment to control the situation.
I'm looking forward to the seeing the next couple of sequels! Have you seen [REC]? If so what are your thoughts on this? If not you should definitely check it out!
