[REC] 2

Ah. So they went the Aliens route with this one, mixing it with a big dose of the Exorcist. Never has the description 'something meets something' (the way film plots tend to be sold) been more appropriate.

And then found out they didn't have enough plot to fill a feature film so decided to lump in 20 minutes or so of some kids who turn up for no real reason and do...pretty much nothing.

Couple that with a finale that involves some nonsense with only being able to see stuff with night-vision cameras and other general nonsensical-ness.

Oh well.

It's one of those where a simple bit of a rewrite could have improved things tremendously, but as it is I'm wondering how its managed to get so many positive reviews from critics.
