[REC] 2 - Trailer

I have no idea what this movie is or what it's about, but it looks like a FPS, and it makes me think of Resident Evil and perhaps - PERHAPS - that's how RE should have looked. I don't know that ? REC2 ? will be any good, but the trailer is especially bloody.

It is a newer trend in horror movies for them too have a documentary feel. Nearly ten years after 'Blair Witch'. I guess it's for immersion's sake, to make you feel as though you're right there in the action. It was fairly successful for both 'Cloverfield' and 'Quarantine', but I wonder, ultimately, how useful it will be. It's ostensibly a gimmick that does little but allow characters to break the fourth wall. I'd like to see someone use the trope inventively, even though it's an invention in and of itself.
