100 Days of Happines: Day 6
I’ve only watched the [REC] series once and recently had the chance to see the 4th instalment, REC: Apocalypse, at FrightFest in Glasgow!
In ‘[Rec]’ (2007) when Angela (Manuela Velasco) and her cameraman Pablo follow the fire crew to a distress call from an elderly woman locked in her apartment, they’re not expecting much in the way of excitement. With the cops already on the scene, all the firemen have to do is break down the door and make sure the woman is okay. If only it were that simple. ‘[Rec] 2’ (2009) pick up the action 15 minutes after the point where the original 2007 film left off, the plot follows a medical officer and a SWAT team armed with video cameras as they enter the quarantined apartment building in an attempt to neutralise the situation. Finally, in ‘[Rec] 3: Genesis’ (2012) another outbreak of a deadly infectious virus strikes an unsuspecting group of civilians. It is Koldo (Diego Martin) and Clara (Leticia Dolera)’s wedding day. Everything goes well, with the happy couple revelling in their special day, until an elderly guest who had complained of being bitten by a dog earlier in the day keels over and appears to be dead. However, subsequent events reveal that a fate far worse than death has struck the guest when he awakes and savagely bites his wife…
Today’s happy thing is going to be re-watching the trilogy as I really enjoyed watching them the first time round!
