The film opens on a SWAT team preparing to enter a quarantined building to investigate a deadly zombie plague. From there it reveals its many surprises in successive layers, each more terrifying than the last. Co-directors Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza have delivered not only one of the freshest twists on the zombie genre in years, but also one of the most genuinely frightening movies ever. Whether or not youre already a fan of its predecessor, REC 2 is an absolute must-see for horror aficionados of all stripes.
