Sitges Festival Opens With ‘[REC] 4 Apocalypse’

Jaume Balaguero’s franchise finale to go day-and-date in much of the world

MADRID – Jaume Balaguero’s much-awaited “[REC] 4 Apocalypse,” the final part of one of the most profitable European genre franchises in history, will open 2014’s Sitges Festival on Oct. 3.

Screen Gems owns U.S. rights to the movie as part of a deal on the whole franchise. “[REC] 4” has been pre-sold worldwide by Filmax Intl.

Produced, as the other parts of the saga, by Julio Fernandez at Filmax, “[REC] 4 Apocalypse” marks the first solo movie in the franchise for Balaguero, who co-helmed the first two parts of the saga with Paco Plaza, the director of the third installment.

It reprises the character of game reality TV reporter Angela Vidal played by Spanish actress Manuela Velasco, who is evacuated alive from the dingy Barcelona apartment block, the only survivor of a demonic virus. The respite proves temporary.

Filmax will release “[REC] 4 Apocalypse” Oct. 31 in Spain. It is likely to open day-and-date over much of the world in order in an attempt to limit piracy.
