Been an enthusiastic fan of the [REC] Spanish zombie horror series, beginning on a stormy afternoon in 2007 (the seas were rough that day), and continuing with [REC] 2 in 2009, the impressive sequel involving the military coming in to see what all the face-eating fuss is about in that ill-fated apartment building. (You did see the first one and know what I’m yapping about, yes?)
Then came the inevitable cash-in/pointless [REC] 3: Genesis (2012), in which a wedding is crashed by face-eaters/well-wishers (taking place before, during and after the original outbreak that turned everybody into face-eaters/well-wishers).
Now comes [REC] 4: Apocalypse, first yapped about on this here barf blog on May 9, 2013 at 2:55PM. In that post I included the movie’s synopsis. Here it is again, practically word-for-word. I could’ve gussied it up, but crap, I’m really hungover today…
“Angela Vidal wakes up in a high-security quarantine facility, sole survivor and witness to the horrific events inside the building. But does she remember what happened to her? Is she carrying a virus? Distrust spreads through the isolated facility while new, even more deadly forms of evil spread even faster.”
[REC] 4: Apocalypse FINALLY gets a release date in Spain this Halloween/2014. (Note to travel agents: [REC] was filmed in Barcelona with a budget of two million dollars. It made 32 million at the world box office. That’s a good return on your Euros.
It’s been bandied about that [REC] 4: Apocalypse is to be the final installment of the surprise hit zombie franchise. Good – that means I can star in the U.S. knock-off – [REC] 4.1: Death Hangover. I’ll be in full character.
