The [REC] films continue, breaking Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's record for the number of a foreign franchise's episodes I've followed. Clever setting this time: gather survivors from the past three movies' zombie-virus outbreaks in a mid-ocean ship, with scientists experimenting on them to find a cure. But after the inevitable on-board outbreak, when crew members are infected/eliminated on the claustrophobic ship, believe it or not, there's a ship self-destruct situation, where the remaining heroes are rushing to jump ship. Yep, it's an Alien rip-off. So after gaining some momentum with the previous episode, we're back to NoMo.
