The Spanish horror movie [Rec]2 will be shown at the River Oaks Theatre in a midnight screening. Writers and directors Jaume Balaguer and Paco Plaza pick up the action right where the last [Rec] left off, with reporter çngela Vidal (Manuela Velasco) getting dragged away from the camera, screaming. In this installment, the directors employ the helmet cameras of a grupo especial de operaciones (special operations group) as they enter the quarantined building where a virus, believed to cause demon possession, is affecting the residents. The helmet cameras capture this hell on earth to create a realistic-looking horror film. This same style of camerawork can be seen in Quarantine, the American remake of [Rec]. 11:55 p.m. Friday and Saturday. 2009 West Gray. for information, call 713-866-8881 or visit www.landmarktheatres.com. $9.75.
July 23-24, 11:55 p.m., 2010
