First [REC] 2 Teaser Poster Revealed!
The first teaser poster for the sequel to last year's cult horror hit [REC] has been revealed. Wait - there's a sequel?! The Spanish horror site Aullidos.com has debuted this poster and confirms that the original filmmakers behind the first film are back again working on [REC] 2. There is already an American remake of [REC] in the works called Quarantine, but this is a separate project. Apparently Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza decided to go back and make a sequel entirely on their own again. There isn't any information to add to this project yet, but fans of [REC] should definitely get a kick out of this teaser poster.
Here's a brief plot synopsis from the first film: While covering the night shift at a small-town fire department, an ambitious young television reporter (Manuela Velasco) and her cameraman follow the crew on a call to rescue an elderly woman trapped in her apartment. Upon their arrival at the scene, the calm midnight air is pierced by the sound of horrific screams, and the television report takes an unexpectedly dark turn. I've heard nothing but great things from a lot of people about the original film. But is a sequel really necessary?
[REC] 2 is both written and directed by Spanish filmmakers Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza. The first film, just titled [REC], first debuted at Venice Film Festival last year but has never actually hit theaters in the US. This sequel is shrouded in secrecry and does not have any other information available yet. We will update you once we hear more - stay tuned!

The first movie [REC] was really good, even if you sometimes get the feeling to just shut the movie down. [REC] Is a real thriller and I cant wait for [REC] 2!!

REC is an amazing movie. My adrenaline was pumping by the end of it, which doesn't happen in movies very often. Quarantine is a piece of junk. How can you shoot something shot for shot and still screw it up ? And yes, REC was before Cloverfield (though both were probably in production around the same time)

Wow, I'm really exited about the sequel! Hopfully it's just as good or even better than the first, but that would be a really hard thing to do, concidering that the first was soooo good!
