Consensus: It lacks the surprising jolt of the first installment, but [REC] 2 almost maintains the original's chilling momentum -- and proves not all horror sequels were made equal.

Amy Biancolli
Houston Chronicle

Multiplying the video-cams only dilutes the effect. Better to stick with one perspective. And see [Rec] first.

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.

Lindy West
The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

REC 2 is adequately claustrophobic and frightening and freaky, but the formula wears thin after a while-especially once they defang the first movie's mystery by explaining it. But if you're a sucker for utter panic, it'll do.

The quality has deteriorated like a dubbed VHS.

Stephen Whitty
Newark Star-Ledger

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.

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.

Bloodthirsty zombies come out to play to diminishing effect in this DIY-style Spanish horror sequel.

Los Angeles Times

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.

R. L. Shaffer

Not as fresh or frightfully exciting as the first film, but certainly scary, occasionally inventive and almost always enjoyable.

Not only far from being as terrifying as the original film, this sequel also makes the mistake of offering an explanation for the story, combining zombies,… More

Man. During the 30 minutes I thought this was going to be one of those rare occasions in which the sequel is better than the original. The scares were much more… More

[Rec] 2 is awesome! It picks up literally right after [Rec] left off. The focus is on a SWAT team going into the apartment to help an official get what he… More

Direct sequel which picks up right where the first one ended... all in the same apartment building again too! But despite the repetitive scenary it's just… More

I hated the direction this movie went. In REC it was supposed to be an infection right? Like rabies? Then they go in a completely different direction off course… More

Less about being scary, more about kicking demon ass.
