A couple's wedding day turns into a horrific events as some of the guests start showing signs of a strange illness.
What in Gods name was Plaza thinking?
Rec 1 and 2 are among the most accomplished horror films of the past decade. Tense, terrifying and filled with invention, originality and a sense of real terror. They have become not only the standard for hand-held horror, but beacons of modern horror in general; spawning a strong American remake, (and its sub-par yet watchable sequel reviewed here), and a ravenous fanbase.
Fans wanted more. More mythos, more story. An expansion of the surprising and disturbing themes explored in the sequel. They could have taken this franchise all the way. It was a prime example of true horrors ability to elicit a primal response in the viewer. So, with a loyal, hungry fanbase and a limitless mythos to explore, what do they do?
They make a comedy.
