New Trailers For Rec 3: Genesis Online

Readers of George RR Martin will recognise the phrase "red wedding", but the Freys and the Starks never quite had to contend with anything like this. The third instalment in the Rec franchise, Genesis, is almost upon us, heralding two new trailers detailing the carnage at Leticia Dolera's "special day".

They're similar, but not quite the same. The trailer up at Bloody Disgusting is the English-subtitled version, which sets up the premise of the spreading undead infection, has messy deaths and jokes, and does a good job of showing this film's breaking-out from the series' signature handheld POV to a more conventional widescreen style. But it's tame compared to the Spanish-language version, up at Shock, which has military intervention and chainsaws.

Rec 3: Genesis is a prequel to the previous two entries, filling in the back-story about how the catholic-zombie-rabies infection "left the building": the building in question apparently being this wedding venue. How it got in there in the first place is another question. Maybe it was the salmon mousse. The link to what went on in that attic in the apartment building of Rec and Rec 2 also remains to be seen, but the series has been so utterly mad so far that we'll probably accept anything.

Along with the aforementioned Dolera, the film stars Javier Botet, and is directed by Paco Plaza, who is half of the team behind the other two. His cohort Jaume Balaguero has been working on Rec 4: Apocalypse at the same time. You can probably infer where the series is headed. Or actually, probably not...

No date for Apocalypse yet, but Genesis, at least in Spain and France, is out in the spring.

RE: Disappointing
L: tommypocket Sadly, this looks like just another generic zombie film with a few handheld sequences so it fits with the 'REC' brand... ndeed, seems stupid to get rid of the handcam idea as that's what makes it recognisable. It doesn't look like .REC anymore. More

Disappointing
No, no, no... REC and REC2 are two of my favourite horror films of the last 10 years... and the best example of two tired trends (zombies and 'found footage') still being fresh, thrilling and innovative in it's storytelling. I was excited to see where they'd take the story next... Sadly, this looks like just another generic zombie film with a few handheld sequences so it fits with the 'REC' brand... More
