REC DVD Arrives in May … in Spain

RECThe U.S. remake of REC (review) isn’t due out till October 17th, so does that mean we have to wait that long to see the original on DVD? Nope!

Well, that is if you live in Spain. You see, on May 28th the Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero directed cinéma-vérité horror flick is going to get three different versions released over there. There’s no news yet as to when we’ll see a region 1 DVD here, but the good news is that ones hitting stores in Spain will have English subtitles. So, those horror fans with multi-region players can easily import the DVD or Blu-ray!

This news came down today from Twitch where the special features were listed for all three versions of the film. The art for the two-disc set can be seen over at Zonda DVD. Here’s a list of what will be available on each SKU:

    Mike Phalin

    Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.

      Please, as a suggestion, when news is posted, can you please attach a date to item. There is a May in every year although, based on the attached comments, the original item “probably” refers to 2008.
