Si! The ‘[REC] 3’ Trailer Takes a Chainsaw to Your Face

Two years ago, on a night just like this, Landon and I sat down on a giant couch as Luke Mullen introduced us both to [REC]. Needless to say there was an equal amount of screaming and bodily fluid clean-up after the credits rolled. That movie is scary as hell.

So is the sequel. Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero managed to take the same concept and extend it along with its mythology in [REC] 2. With the third and fourth installments, the pair are going in an entirely new direction.

[REC] 3: Genesis moves the action far away from the infamous apartment building and into the daylight. As promised by the synopsis, it will lead into the fourth film – the final chapter in the series. The teaser trailer is an exercise in oddity as a wedding party erupts in the bloodiest kind of wanton violence.

It should also be noted that Plaza and Balaguero aren’t directing together this time around. There’s no doubt that each are heavily involved in the creation of both movies, but each is taking singular directing credit for each. This is Plaza’s installment, and hopefully it’s as bizarre and frightening as the first two flicks.

What do you think?
