The highly anticipated sequel to one of the scariest films of all time, "[REC] 2" picks up 15 minutes from where we left off, taking us back into the quarantined apartment building where a terrifying virus has run rampant, turning the occupants into mindlessly violent, raging beasts. A heavily armed SWAT team and a mysterious government official are sent in to assess and attempt to neutralize the situation. What they find inside lies beyond the scope of medical science -- a demonic nightmare of biblical proportions more terrifying than they could have possibly imagined. Above all it… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Multiplying the video-cams only dilutes the effect. Better to stick with one perspective. And see [Rec] first."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"The shaky camera work (and explosive gore) can get literally nauseating. But when the characters' cameras run low, and the screen goes black? That's the scariest thing of all."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Where the first [REC] was a jump-and-scare flick that put you in the victim's point of view, [REC]2 takes things a little further."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"It doesn't quite maximise the potential of all of its ideas, but it nonetheless provides a horror experience that's up there with the best of recent years..."
‑ Mike Edwards, What Culture
"A mediocre third-generation copy of an idea that wasn't very new to begin with, and the addition of a supposedly rational explanation to the mix proves more hindrance than help."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"Bloodthirsty zombies come out to play to diminishing effect in this DIY-style Spanish horror sequel."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Unlike so many sequels, [REC] 2 builds nicely on the ideas introduced first time around; in particular, the nature and history of the disease, only touched on in the original, are explored much more fully here to chilling effect."
‑ Michael Ordoña, Los Angeles Times
"Not as fresh or frightfully exciting as the first film, but certainly scary, occasionally inventive and almost always enjoyable."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Not as good as its predecessor, but only a notch below making it an enjoyable and honorable sequel."
‑ Perri Nemiroff, CinemaBlend.com
"Fast and violent, with feral demon kids and a surplus of imaginative restatements of the genre's best-loved clichés."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"Frantic from the get-go, this new crop of zombie bait barrels through shadowy hallways and fends off waxen, emaciated attackers with such hysterical speed it's impossible to know -- or care -- whose face has just been chomped."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"The mayhem, efficiently maintained for a just-right 84 minutes, makes [REC] 2 strictly for horror fans."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"The film gets a lot of mileage from its concept of seeing things only through the soldiers' helmet-mounted cameras, but the plot also develops in some surprising directions."
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
"Rather than trying to up the ante laid down by its predecessor, it simply picks up where that film left off (at the precise moment it left off, in fact), and continues doing many of the things that movie did so well."
‑ Ian Buckwalter, DCist
"The quality has deteriorated like a dubbed VHS."
‑ Amy Nicholson, Boxoffice Magazine
