Director: Jaume Balagueró & Paco Plaza (Spain – 2009)
Picking up just after the events of the first film, ‘[REC] 2’ features a SWAT team and a shady government official heading into the same quarantined Barcelona apartment building that’s chock full of virus-riddled demons. Shot POV-style, much like ‘[REC],’ part 2 mixes it up with SWAT helmet cams, camcorders and footage from part 1. It may not be quite as taut and sinister as the original- some of the attack sequences get a bit repetitive- but there’s great innovation at work here.
