Filmax Begins Recording ‘[REC]’ Documentary “Terror Sin Pause”

The found-footage craze is over but its remnants have left a handful of classics in its wake.

One of the greatest found-footage films is the Paco Plaza and Jaume Balagueró-directed [REC] (2007), which spawned an even better sequel and two more follow-ups that would be directed individually by each of the aforementioned filmmakers.

The franchise is legendary, with all of the films being smash festival hits and also instant fan favorites, not to mention giving birth to the U.S. remake, Quarantine, and its own sequel.

Now, Filmax is celebrating their own series with the forthcoming documentary, [REC] Terror Sin Pause, which just started principal photography.

Terror Sin Pause is being shot, directed by Diego López-Fernández, and portrays the birth and impact of the first installment, which resulted in a whole cinematographic phenomenon.

Notes the press release: “With the creation of its own fantastic genre film label, Fantastic Factory, Filmax opened a period of splendor in which it made the leap to the international level. Conceived by Julio Fernández and the American filmmaker Brian Yuzna, this label established itself within Spanish cinema with Faust (Brian Yuzna, 2001), Arachnid (Jack Sholder (2001), Dagon (Stuart Gordon, 2001), and Darkness (Jaume Balagueró, 2002) shaping what later became known as Terror Made in Spain. Each of these films helped cement the foundations of Filmax’s future success: the [REC] saga.

“In addition to its directors, the documentary will take a tour of the different areas of production, interviewing the promoters of the idea, its main cast, professionals from areas such as art direction and photography direction and prominent personalities such as Ángel Sala, director of the contest that gave birth to the phenomenon: the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia,” the press release adds.

The doc will feature interviews with Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza (directors); Julio Fernández, Carlos Fernández and Carles Rojano (Filmax); Oriol Maymó (production); Pablo Rosso (director of photography); David Ambit (FX); and the protagonists of the film: Manuela Velasco, Carlos Lasarte, and Javier Botet, among many more.
