REC 2 Photos Reveal New Characters


Is there a teen angle coming?

Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza are back on the horror scene yet again with Rec 2, a follow-up to 2007’s Rec which finally hit U.S. shores on DVD this year. Their sequel is playing at the Toronto International Film Festival and our reps have kindly passed along three hi-res stills including the one you see below which introduces us to what appears to be two new teen characters. In the below TIFF synopsis, we learn the the plot picks up in the same tenement the first film took place in and will present different angles of the madness that unfolds…

The duo returns with [REC] 2, which leaps right back into the action as a medical officer and a SWAT team outfitted with video cameras are sent into the sealed-off apartment to control the situation.

By using the flipped perspective of the camera-equipped troops, Balagueró and Plaza have designed a shocker meticulously calculated to set your nerves on edge. [REC] 2 is Aliens to Alien, a sequel that ramps up the action but does not defile the spirit of its predecessor. Balagueró and Plaza have proved themselves exciting additions to the gory canon of Euro-horror masters, and they can’t wait to drag the Midnight Madness audience into the darkness, screaming at the top of their lungs.
