Of all the movies I wish I had a Berlinale Market Badge for, REC 3: Genesis probably topped the list. The first was pee-inducing, the second one was so scary that one of my testicles jumped back into my body, and Paco Plaza‘s next installment of the franchise promises more vigorous found footage style alongside a ton of blood.

According to the official synopsis: “Koldo and Clara are about to celebrate the most important day of their lives: their wedding. The reception is being held at a beautiful old stately home in the middle of the countryside. 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…”

Check out this excellent, romantic trailer for yourself:

Drenched in sweat and blood, wedding dress-clad, wielding a chainsaw. It’s a safe bet that Clara (Leticia Dolera) will be a bigger bad ass than Angela in the original. However, it’ll be interesting to see how far they go with the “It’s my special day”-style humor.

The hopes are set high for what looks like a killer, classy version of a cabin in the woods story. But how will it tie in to the first two?
