TIFF ’09: Plans For a Third ‘REC’ Underway!

Just getting back to the hotel after the Midnight Madness premiere of REC 2, where Spanish directors Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza were on hand to introduce the sequel to their groundbreaking horror film that has already spawned a remake. While the sequel is arriving in Spanish theaters next month, the duo reveal that they are already thinking about doing a third. “We swore we wouldn’t make second one,” Paco Plaza jokes after explaining how they swore up and down they would never continue the story, “but I think we want to make it. Maybe next year we are here with a third? I don’t know.” Could we be seeing a third REC at the Toronto International Film Festival come 2010? Let’s cross our fingers. Watch this spot for a review of REC 2 soon.
The same talented directors stick to the same claustrophobic concept in REC 2, but find new means of transferring fear from the screen to the spectator through the recording lens.

The action continues from [Rec], with the medical officer and a SWAT team outfitted with video cameras are sent into the sealed off apartment to control the situation.
