The REC franchise took a little break from the Barcelona apartment building to let the virus ravage a reception full of wedding guests in [REC 3]: Genesis, but come January 2, 2015, we’re going back to ground zero to experience the aftermath of the events of the first two films. [REC] 4: Apocalypse picks up just hours later with the army deciding enough is enough; they have to demolish the building to kill the virus. However, little do they know, Angela Vidal (Manuela Velasco) is carrying the infection with her, so the high-security quarantine facility she’s heading to is in big trouble.
Want a very brief taste of what’s to come for Angela? Check out our exclusive [REC] 4 character video for Velasco and her furry co-star, Monkey, after the jump. The film arrives in theaters and on VOD January 2nd.
Here’s the synopsis for [REC] 4: Apocalypse:
Several hours have passed since the terrible events that ravaged the old building in Barcelona. After the chaos of the first few moments, the army decided to intervene and an elite group of soldiers infiltrated the building in order to plant detonators and put an end to this nightmare once and for all. The mission is a success; quick and precise. Angela Vidal, the young television reporter who entered the building with the fireman just hours before, manages to make it out alive. But what they don’t know is that she hasn’t made it out of the building alone; within her 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. A perfect location for the virus to be reborn in all its splendor. It will take on new and even more deadly forms, setting the scene for horrors we could only have imagined, before finally revealing its true nature. The apocalypse has just begun…
