Teaser Trailer For Rec 3: Genesis Online
It's a big, fat, infected wedding

Teaser Trailer For Rec 3: Genesis Online

The Spanish and American Rec and Quarantine franchises have now branched off on entirely separate tracks, but we're happy to report that while Quarantine 2 went its feeble DTV Rabies-on-a-Plane route, Recs 3 and 4 are continuing with their original creative team and levels of madness. Here's a teaser trailer for Rec 3: Genesis. Empire was at a wedding recently, but we're glad it wasn't like this.

Describing the trailer's trajectory would be both redundant and spoilery, so we'll say no more than it starts sedately and then seriously kicks off, and that it's probably not safe for work. There will be blood, and a killer punchline.

Series honchos Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza directed the first two Recs in tandem, but have gone it alone for the next pair, taking one each. Balaguero lannded the yet-to-be-glimpsed threequel Apocalypse, with Plaza therefore behind the megaphone for Genesis, a prequel apparently "opening up" the story by taking it miles from the original location, and using a more "traditional" filmmaking style (it sounds like bits of Genesis will still be first-person POV, but as you'll see from the teaser, not all of it). We're promised it'll also function as a "decoder" for the back-story clues dropped in the first two films.

How do we get from this wedding to that attic? All we be revealed sometime next year. The only release date yet set is Spain's on March 30.

hmmm
I thought the original was great, the 2nd started well but completely lost at halfway through with teens breaking into the building and talk of portals..this 3rd entry doesnt seem to make sense as the end of 2 hinted that the infection would spread out into the city. ..think ill wait for the dvd More

Love those movies!
The end of the first one freaked me out and then the second one was even creepier. Really looking forward to the next two. Never said that before about a series! More

Rec 3 : Genesis
I thought the first 2 were among the scariest films of recent years. Based on this teaser, it looks like they may have done it again. Can't wait. More
