Here is the first official trailer for [REC]4: Apocalypse, and it looks like an edge-of-your-seat joyride full of intense scares resulting from the way it draws you into the the storyline’s mystery. (See, I told you in my Jessabelle trailer news that “joyride” was a real thing.)
Before watching the trailer, my first question was, “Is this going to be as stupid as [REC]3: Genesis?” If you remember, that one took a different approach than the first two films did, setting it at a wedding and turning it into a horror comedy. That’s often a natural progression with horror franchises, and there’s nothing wrong with it, but c’mon, [REC]3 was a train wreck.
Fortunately, it seems that writer/director Jaume Balagueró has steered the franchise back toward its origins. And just as his partner in crime and co-director of [REC] and [REC]2, Paco Plaza, did with [REC]3, Balagueró is flying solo in the director’s chair.
As I said, [REC]4 appears to go back to the origins, picking up where the first film left off, and reintroducing us to Ángela Vidal (Manuela Velasco) as she awakens from her recent horrors. Oh, Hells yes! The film also looks like it capitalizes on enclosed spaces again, so if you’re claustrophobic, maybe you should sit this one out.
[REC]4: Apocalypse Synopsis:
The young reporter Ángela is rescued from the building and taken to an oil tanker to be examined. However, it is unbeknown to the soldiers that she carries the seed of the mysterious demonic virus.
Just in time for Halloween, [REC]4: Apocalypse comes to theaters on October 31st.
