[REC]3 Genesis finds Paco Plaza largely dispensing with the found footage aesthetic of the series and going much broader. I still haven’t seen the film, and while Mr. Disgusting thinks it falls a hair or two short of the prior two entries, I’m not too worried. All of the teasers, trailers and images actually have me kind of confident that I’ll like this thing. I’m not a die-hard fan of the series so maybe I’m just responding positively to the new aesthetic. This beautiful high-res poster kind of makes my point for me.
In the film, “Koldo and Clara are about to celebrate the most important day of their lives: their wedding. Everything appears to be running smoothly and the bride and groom and their families are enjoying a wonderful day; that is until some of the guests start showing signs of a strange illness. Before they know what’s happening, the bride and groom find themselves in the middle of a hellish ordeal, as an uncontrollable torrent of violence is unleashed on the wedding. Amidst the chaos, Koldo and Clara become separated and begin a desperate search for one another. What started off as an idyllic day quickly descends into a nightmare of the worst kind…”
