TIFF 2009 MUST SEE LIST: [REC] 2
Directed by Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza
The sequel to the smash hit Spanish thriller [REC] takes off the moment its predecessor ends, following a medical officer and a SWAT team, equipped with video cameras, who are sent into the quarantined apartment building to control the situation. Writers and directors Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza both return with many of the original cast and crew members to deliver what some are already labeling the best horror movie of the year. Sound On Sight listeners will remember Ricky and Simon raving about the original film which scared Fantasia Film Fest audience members so much, that it left three girls in tears. Balagueró and Plaza have proved themselves exciting additions to the line up of Euro-horror masters, and we expect nothing but great things from this movie.
