To the dismay of Paco Plaza (who is a fabulous filmmaker), I wasn’t a huge fan of his solo-directed [REC]3 Genesis as he abandoned the found footage component of the franchise, while also injecting humor into an otherwise dead-pan serious trilogy (soon to be saga).

Magnet will release here in the States via On Demand August 3 with a theatrical run planned for September 7.
