In the acclaimed 2007 Spanish horror film [Rec], remade as Quarantine in the U.S., a television reporter and her cameraman, covering the night shift in one of Barcelona’s local fire stations for a documentary TV series, respond to an emergency in which an old woman is reported to be trapped in an apartment building. But the TV crew becomes trapped itself—along with fire fighters and police officers—when the police and military seal off the building due to a virulent disease that is infecting people, causing them to turn into bloodthirsty savages. In [REC] 2, only a few minutes have passed since the authorities lost contact with the people trapped inside the quarantined building. Nobody knows exactly what's going on inside. Outside, chaos reigns. For the Special Operations Unit this is a seemingly straightforward mission—to enter the building and analyse the situation. But as we know, appearances can be deceiving... Directors Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza return to direct [REC] 2, exploring new ways to expand the horror genre.
“[REC] 2 is the rare sequel to not only live up to the first film, but expand the mythology in a satisfying way." - Ain't It Cool News
"[REC] 2 is the only movie in the entire Toronto International Film Festival that left me wanting more. It’s a nonstop rollercoaster ride (yeah, I know that’s cliché, but it’s true!) that grabs the audiences by the throat and never lets go." - Bloody Disgusting
"It’s not often that I get to say that a horror film is anywhere near perfect, but [REC] 2 is such an amazing experience (both movie-wise and fear-wise), that there’s just no better adjective for it." - Film School Rejects
"As an example of how to make a near flawless follow-up, [REC] 2 is a revelation." - Pop Matters
The film’s running time is 84 minutes; it is not rated. In Spanish; fully subtitled in English.
