New trailer arrives for REC 4: Apocalypse
One of Spain's best-known horror franchises takes to the ocean waves in REC 4: Apocalypse. Here's the latest trailer...
The first two REC films were highly effective exercises in found-footage horror. Although shot two years apart, they followed directly on from one another, providing a single account of a Barcelona apartment building beset by a bizarre disease. REC 3: Genesis, meanwhile, took place at a wedding, quickly dropped the shaky-cam format, and added an unexpected comedic edge.
The forthcoming REC 4: Apocalypse is still shot like a conventional horror movie, but the jokier atmosphere of the previous REC appears to be absent. Its plot circles back to the first film, too, with that entry's central character, Angela Vidal (Manuela Valesco), emerging on an oil tanker somewhere in the middle of the ocean. Unsurprisingly, there's something grim on board with Angela and the rest of the crew.
REC 4: Apocalypse is out on the 31st October in its native Spain, while its release in the UK and US has yet to be announced. When we have some further news, we'll pass it along. In the meantime, here's that shadowy trailer - and as a Brucey bonus, you can also find the first REC 4 poster tucked away beneath it.
Isn't that a Black & Decker Trim N Edge Strimmer the heroine's holding? Judging from the combative look on her face, she isn't in the mood for tidying up our herbaceous borders.
