Spanish horror series, [REC] 4: Apocalypse got a creepy new red band trailer.
REC (stylized as [REC]) is a 2007 Spanish horror film, co-written and directed by Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza. The film was shot in Barcelona, Spain and the title is an abbreviation of the word “record”, as it appears on a video camera.
Balaguero and Plaza previously directed the 2002 documentary OT: la película. REC was filmed as a found footage film and used a “shaky camera” technique. The film was remade in the US as the 2008 filmQuarantine.
As the first installment of the REC series, it was followed by three sequels; REC 2 in 2009, REC 3: Genesis in 2012, and REC 4 in 2014 as the final installment in the franchise. Spanish company Filmax International is responsible for the production of the REC franchise and released all four installments.
Series producer Jaume Balaguero steps in to the director’s chair for this entry in the franchise which is being called “the last chapter.” In the film, Angela Vidal the young television reporter who entered the building with the fireman, manages to make it out alive. But what the soldiers don’t know is that she carries the seed of the strange infection.
[REC] 4: Apocalypse opens in US theaters on January 2, 2015.
