Catalan term or phrase: festa / festiu (in this context)
This is quite nuanced, in the context of a horror film (REC and REC 2)...

I'm not sure whether we would use "festive" in this context... maybe that would be the easiest/best solution.

Or maybe there is something that better captures what they mean.

Many thanks

". Sempre havíem percebut la pel•lícula com una festa i això significava continuar aquesta festa"

"Crec que aquesta té un esperit una mica més autoparòdic que la primera, és a dir, hi ha alguna cosa que la fa més humorística... Hi ha un esperit potser més festiu en aquesta…, o potser no, no ho acabem de tenir clar. Però l’esperit festiu hi és a les dues, entenent-lo com a «festival del terror», una mica com el tren de la bruixa de les fires. "
