New Trailer For [.Rec] 4: Genesis Online
This is the end...

First announced together way back in 2010, the original idea was that [.Rec] 3: Genesis and [.Rec] 4: Apocalypse would film more-or-less concurrently and be released close together. Clearly that didn't pan out, since Genesis arrived a couple of years ago. But here, finally, is a trailer for Apocalypse, picking up Manuela Velasco's story, left hanging at the end of [.Rec] 2.

Series honchos Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza directed the first two [.Rec]s in tandem, but went solo for the prequel and this threequel, taking one each. Plaza handled Genesis, so Apocalypse is Balaguero's, and sees Velasco's Angela rescued and taken to an impromptu base set up on an oil tanker. Inevitably, however, the quarantine doesn't hold, and the survivors are soon once again faced with infected victims of the franchise's unique, peculiarily Catholic zombie rabies virus.

Genesis abandoned the first two films' chaotic handheld found footage style after its first few minutes, and judging by this clip, Apocalypse doesn't use POV at all: an interesting choice since it was such a part of [.Rec]'s early identity (and gives the franchise's title its meaning). But after Genesis' detour into splatstick comedy, we do seem to be right back into the darkness for part 4.

We're told Apocalypse is definitely [.Rec]'s final chapter. Is this really the end of everything? Who will survive and what will be left of them? We should find out sometime later this year. There's no UK release date yet, but it's out in its native Spain on October 31.
