Finally the film that inspired Quarantine, REC (review here), is getting a US DVD release of its own on July 14, 2009, and the sequel we’ve all been waiting for got its very own website. It’s a good day to be a REC fan!
A beautiful TV reporter and her cameraman are doing a routine interview at a local fire station when an emergency call comes in. Accompanying the firefighters to a nearby apartment, the news team begins recording the bloodcurdling screams coming from inside an elderly woman’s unit. After authorities seal off the building to contain the threat, the news crew, firefighters, and residents are trapped to face a lethal terror inside. With the camera running, nothing may survive but the film itself.
No word yet on cover art or special features.
REC was executive produced by Julio Fernández and Carlos Fernández and directed by Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza, who are currently directing the film’s sequel, REC 2 (official website). The film was written by Jaume Balagueró, Luis A. Berdejo, and Paco Plaza.
