Magnet Plans “[REC] 2” US Release In July

Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, has announced that it has acquired US rights to “[REC] 2”, the anticipated sequel to the terrifying cult favorite horror feature “[REC]” (which scored the American remake “Quarantine”).

“[REC]” told the story of a quarantined apartment building infected with a ferocious virus that spread a terrifying form of demonic possession to the trapped inhabitants. Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza’s “[REC] 2” kicks off shortly after the events of the first film, when a medical officer and a SWAT team armed with video cameras are sent into the sealed off apartment building to try and neutralize the situation.

Magnet plans an early July theatrical release for the film, which will be released through Magnolia/Magnet’s Ultra VOD program, debuting a month prior on VOD platforms nationwide.
