Playing at the Toronto International Film Festival is Jaume Balaguero’s final chapter in the [Rec] series, [Rec] 4: Apocalypse. Balaguero wrote and directed the first two films in the series with Paco Plaza, then the pair split for the next two instalments.
Plaza directed the third film in the series, [Rec] 3: Genesis, which played as part horror part comedy while focusing on a wedding which was taking place as the disease seen in the first two films spread. [Rec] 4: Apocalypse, directed and co-written by Balaguero, will be a direct sequel to [Rec] 2.
Earlier this week a few images from the film were unleashed, and today we have a few more for you. I have included the new images, plus the images released earlier for your viewing pleasure.
Directed and co-created by Jaume Balaguero, [REC]4 Apocalypse will complete the franchise, with Manuela Velasco returning in the starring role.
Angela Vidal (Manuela Velasco), the young television reporter who entered the building with the fireman, manages to make it out alive. But what the soldiers don’t know is that she carries the seed of the strange infection. She is to be taken to a provisional quarantine facility, a high-security installation where she will have to stay in isolation for several days. An old oil tanker, miles off shore and surrounded by water on all sides, has been especially equipped for the quarantine.
Angela Vidal wakes up in a high-security quarantine facility, sole survivor and witness to the horrific events inside the building. But does she remember what happened to her? Is she carrying a virus? Distrust spreads through the isolated facility while new, even more deadly forms of evil spread even faster.
