[REC] DVD release confirmed for May 28th in Spain - with English subs!

Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza's mighty terrifying [Rec] has been announced for release on DVD and Blu-Ray in its home territory of Spain on May 28th in three iterations, each featuring English-language subtitles.

The single-disc edition sports an anamorphic 1.85:1 transfer, DTS and Dolby Digital sound, director commentary, a making-of featurette, promotional stills and materials, TV spots, teasers, and trailers.

The two-disc special edition retains the above and also features footage from the premier at Sitges, interviews, clips from casting sessions, deleted scenes, and quite a bit more.

The Blu-Ray release retains everything from the two-disc set with the feature presented in full 1080p. One would assume it'll be a Region B release.


The discs don't seem to be up for pre-order yet, but we'll let you know when they are. Despite the dollar's ever-dwindling status on the international scene, I'll be taking a hit and ordering this ASAP. [Rec] is one of those rare cases of a film living up to considerable hype - it's just damn scary, bloody fun.

Worth noting too that Balagueró's potent debut feature, Los Sin Nombre (The Nameless), will see a Blu-Ray release in Spain on May14th. As with the two-disc set of the film released several years back, the director's outstanding short films Alicia and Días sin Luz will be included (and almost warrant a purchase by themselves).

How are zonadvd on shipping? DVDGO charge insane amount for their shipping outside of Spain so I'll never order from them.

So, can anyone recommend a good multi region BR player?

Good? I dunno. There are more and more turning up online. Here are a few sites to check out...

They aren't cheap. You want to look for players that are hard-modded to defeat region-coding - they shouldn't be affected by firmware updates that way. I'm sure there'll be software patches, too (which will have to be re-hacked and re-set with every firmware update performed).

This is definitely one I've been waiting to hear about.

It's also worth noting that DIAS SIN LUZ most likely still won't have English subs on the Blu-Ray.
