REC 4: Apocalypse (2015) Review:
The [REC] series features so far three great movies, and this fourth, solid on every aspects, is certainly not one to lower the overall quality of the franchise.
The movies brings back some of the actors from the first three movies, including the return of the series star Angela (played by the beloved Manuela Velasco). It starts slowly, maybe too slowly for some, and tend to resemble your usual action/catastrophe flick at first. Fortunately, it gets much better as soon as zombies start to appear (towards the middle of the movie). A few good twists comes to spice up the story at about the same time – making the second of the movie breath-taking.
But the best thing about [REC]4 remains the action scenes. The movie is really gory, flirting with splatter/comedy at times (like [REC]3 was doing), while keeping a dark an oppressive atmosphere (more like [REC] and [REC]2). The special effects, most of them great practical prostheses and impressive make ups, are worthy of the best zombie movies.
The movie is by no mean a masterpiece, but way above the average too. A great addition to what now appears as the most solid modern horror franchise.
