The [REC] Collection boxes up all 4 films in September

[REC] was an international theatrical hit around the world except America. Why did the Spanish film not get theater action in Orlando? Because it was immediately remade as Quarantine with Jennifer Carpenter. The found footage film follows reporter covering firefighters who discover the victims of a burning building aren’t eager to be rescued. The original film did come out as DVD. Because of the film’s rabid fan base, directors Paco Plaza and Jaume Balagueró were able to make three more movies to explore and expand the fate of the reporter and the tenants. Now all four films are coming out in a boxset with The [REC] Collection arriving on Blu-ray in September. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:

THE [REC] COLLECTION
4-DISC BLU-RAY™ SET ARRIVES SEPTEMBER 25, 2018
FROM SCREAM FACTORY™

In 2007, two talented Spanish filmmakers, Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza created a terrifying film that went on to spawn three sequels, an American remake and its sequel. On September 25, 2018, SCREAM FACTORY™ is proud to present THE [REC] COLLECTION 4-Disc Blu-ray set featuring a quadrilogy of terror, including [REC], [REC] 2, [REC] 3: GENESIS, and [REC] 4: APOCALYPSE. A must-have for horror enthusiasts and movie collectors, THE [REC] Collection Blu-ray set includes audio commentary with writers/directors Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza, making-of featurettes, behind-the-scenes footage, outtakes, deleted scenes, trailers, and more! Pre-order is available now at ShoutFactory.com

In the first film, [REC], a TV reporter and her crew are asked to cover a crew of firemen on duty. What seems like a routine story about a night at the fire station soon turns into a nightmare. Trapped inside a quarantined building, the crew must try to survive the terror that rages inside. [REC] 2 picks up minutes after the end of [REC]. The authorities have lost contact with the people trapped inside the quarantined building and chaos reigns. A Special Operations Unit has been tasked with entering the premises … only to discover that this is anything but a straightforward mission. [REC] 3: GENESIS leaves the confines of the quarantined building to follow the wedding of Koldo and Clara. Everything appears to be running smoothly and the bride and groom are enjoying a wonderful day … until some of the guests start showing signs of a strange illness and unleash a torrent of violence. [REC] 4: APOCALYPSE returns focus to Ángela Vidal, the young reporter who has managed to make it out of the building alive. But she hasn’t made it out of the building alone as she carries the seed of the strange infection. She is taken to a provisional quarantine facility: the perfect location for the virus to be reborn.
