This past Friday marked the theatrical and VOD release of [REC] 4: Apocalypse (review), the final installment in the Spanish horror series that ends things on a highly entertaining note. On tap for you today is a fun little infographic to help you better understand the anatomy of the series’ virus.

Check out the helpful graphic below, which came our way courtesy of Crave Online!

[REC] 4: Apocalypse is directed by series co-creator Jaume Balaguero and marks the return of actress Manuela Velasco.

Synopsis:
Several hours have passed since the terrible events that ravaged the old building in Barcelona. After the chaos of the first few moments, the army decided to intervene and an elite group of soldiers infiltrated the building in order to plant detonators and put an end to this nightmare once and for all. The mission is a success; quick and precise. Angela Vidal, the young television reporter who entered the building with the fireman just hours before, manages to make it out alive. But what they don’t know is that she hasn’t made it out of the building alone; within her she carries the seed of the strange infection.

Angela is to be taken to a provisional quarantine facility, a high-security installation where she will have to stay in isolation for several days. A perfect location for the virus to be reborn in all its splendor. It will take on new and even more deadly forms, setting the scene for horrors we could only have imagined, before finally revealing its true nature. The apocalypse has just begun…

Joel David Moore to Write and Direct the Remake of Hit Korean Film Hide and Seek

Published

on

Joel David Moore is an actor we all know from his roles in James Cameron’s Avatar and Adam Green’s original Hatchet film. But did you know he also co-directed Adam Green’s psychological thriller Spiral? Well, he did and now the man is stepping back behind the camera for CJ Entertainment’s upcoming remake of the 2013 Korean Movie Hide and Seek.

Moore will write an adapted feature English-language screenplay for Hide and Seek in addition to directing the film. The original Korean version was written and directed by Huh Jung.

“Hide and Seek is a sharp, sophisticated thriller that created a lasting imprint on me,” said Joel David Moore. “I wanted to explore what could happen if we retold this story to an American audience, using the tools from the original story. We found a rich and complex world, relevant to our current race, class and power struggles we’re seeing here in America. I’m excited to partner with CJ Entertainment, perfect partners on this journey.”

CJ Entertainment is developing, financing and producing the film.

We’ll let you know when we hear more!

Synopsis:

Based on a phenomenon that actually happens, the film centers on a man searching for his long-lost brother stumbles upon a secret world of squatters living in the homes of unsuspecting tenants – a revelation that becomes all the more menacing when his home becomes the next target.

Hide and Seek is a social horror-thriller that builds upon themes related to the widening gap between the upper 1% and the lower class. As the population in urban areas balloon and real estate prices skyrocket, lower-income segments of society are finding themselves continually getting pushed out. This film explores the question of “what if” when those left marginalized decide to take matters, and homes, into their own hands.
