Kick off the Halloween season this Friday with the new Spanish horror hit!

[REC] 3: GENESIS // Friday, September 28, 2012 at Cinefamily

Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero’s [REC] series has set the standard for “found footage” zombie horror, far outshining similar efforts by Hollywood and even zombie master George Romero himself — and [REC] 3: Genesis is the most giddy and playful entry of the series to date. The set-up is brilliant: a camera crew is filming a wedding when the zombie-cum-demon plague established in the former films erupts. The bride and groom are separated in the chaos, and the film tracks their crimson-soaked efforts to find each other in the sprawling, zombie-infested wedding hall. Part Evil Dead, part Four Weddings And A Funeral, [REC 3] is an all-out blast, with Plaza abandoning the restrictive first-person POV early on, letting the gruesome, gory events play out with the benefit of a “normal” camera view — and the results feel novel and fresh. This gorgeous film deserves to be seen on the big screen, where you can see every beautifully rendered dismemberment, and marvel at every dazzling head explosion. RSVP right away, because this is one wedding you’d be a fool to miss!
Dir. Paco Plaza, 2012, 35mm, 81 min.
