This time alternating between a SWAT team and a group of kids. Unlike in the first, where it almost exclusively takes place in the quarantined building, in this one there are a couple of shots taking place outside (such as when the kids sneak in and before the SWAT team enter the building).
Naturally, the acting is still pretty strong, and of course Manuela Velasco performance is still the highlight in that area. They probably should've focused on one of the groups, though, to make it more cohesive (the SWAT team or the kids).
Overall, though, still a really strong horror movie on it's own, and a worthy addition to the REC franchise.
This is just my opinion, but I found this to be better and even scarier than the first, it changes its "zombies" completely from others adding a far more original side to this franchise, a more original side that many people seem to hate, but I fell in love with this twist on the genre right away.. I won't say what it is just incase you haven't seen any of the REC films, but it sure isn't for everyone.
Also, the first is one of scarier movies I've seen and this sequel had me jump right into the roof, its not easy to scare me, but this has some darn intense scenes, the last few had me nearly close my eyes I did want to get a goods night sleep.
I really can't complain about anything on this movie, it all worked far too well for me, even as a sequel it did even more than I could've hoped for in a follow-up to an already impressive zombie movie.
Say what you will about this movie and I'll say what I want... and I say it one of the best zombie films.
