A Rundown of the 13 Best Horror Movies I’ve Seen in the Past Year
[13 of 13]
[REC] 2 (September 2009)
Contrary to the louder, “sound and fury” mentality of Hollywood’s hollower sequels, [REC] 2 targets higher ground in more significant ways. Not only are the shots more ambitious, but so is the narrative structure.
Read the entire review here.
Parting shot: Well, as it turns out, we’re in for two more [REC] films: Paco Plaza will direct [REC] Genesis, a prequel set for a Fall 2011 release, and Jaume Balagueró will helm [REC] Apocalypse, which will reportedly close out the series in Fall 2012, “… with the pandemic spreading to unknown proportions.”
Meanwhile, Flatmate, the Balagueró film I mention at the tail end of the original [REC] 2 review, has apparently now been rechristened, Sleep Tight; note the one sheet below.
