There are silly ideas — otherwise invisible ephemera can be seen by night-vision cameras? Satan hasn't covered his Radio Shack ass yet? — but [Rec] 2 proves there's still imaginative life in zombie cinema, even if it requires bending the rules. [Rec] 3 and 4 are reportedly moving forward. This might become the rare film series — living or undead — that steadily improves.

[REC] 2 opens Fri/16 in Bay Area theaters.
