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). Still, the Spanish-language film that opens in its home country next Friday, is pretty entertaining and has just enough blood and guts to warrant a viewing.
Getting fans in Spain hyped, Filmax has released another pair of clips from the blood-red wedding, one featuring the Bride (Leticia Dolera) as she rips the cord of her trusty chain saw and goes to work on an infected family member.
In other brief news, the quasi-prequel will be arriving in UK cinemas May 11, with a DVD/Blu-ray date unlisted for August. We can only assume Magnet will aim for a similar release plan theatrically, while Sony is completely unpredictable with home video (because they don’t give a sh*t about it; seriously). “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…”
