DVD Review: [REC] 2 - Cert 18

A LESSON I have learnt from my experience of watching [REC] 2 is to never truly expect one thing as you normally end up disappointed.

A LESSON I have learnt from my experience of watching [REC] 2 is to never truly expect one thing as you normally end up disappointed.

I expected a re-hash of the first film with the same tension and brilliant build-ups.

We begin where the first movie ended as a group of people enter the house with cameras and record their terrifying findings.

The genius of the first film is that it created a completely different kind of zombie movie, where each character played an integral part of some evil.

Sadly [REC] 2 repeats many of the shocks from the first but the ending, like the first, could cut a diamond with its raw intensity and leaves jaws dropped.

None-the-less [REC] 2 yanked the hatchet up a few notches and delivered a sequel that doesn’t quite taint the original.
