REC Creators talk Hollywood RemakeMeh
The creators of REC sat down with Fangoria to talk about the upcoming remake of their film REC. They pretty much hit the nail on the head in making the point its being remade to appeal to a more diverse and younger audience who dont appreciate more artistic films;
“It is a horror film," said Balagueró. "What they’re trying to do is turn a film that could very well be successful on the art-house circuit, even if subtitled, into one that could potentially be successful as a mainstream, teen-oriented movie. Which is, by the way, the same market that doesn’t like reading at the movies in Spain."
I for one am interestied in Quarantine but I also plan to see REC. I think most mainstream horror fans will skip REC and go straight for the easy fix with Quarantine
