After loving the first two films in the [REC] series, we figured a third endeavor into the world of the possessed & infected would be a surefire hit with us.
Sadly, [REC]3 left us feeling a bit cold...
[REC]3: Genesis feels like a side-step away from the first two [REC] films, both in continuity and in tone. Although it's told within the same confines as the other [REC] movies, it's an odd, odd departure of sorts.
Do not go into this one expecting another visit to the creepy world of the possessed/infected that the first two movies gave us; this is more of a Horror comedy if anything.
It's an odd one, that's for sure.

|He looks really happy... like he's in a Mentos commercial too!|
On thing that we found especially interesting was how Paco Plaza had a character destroy the hand-held cameras that were being used to film everything, faded to black, then brought up the [REC]3: Genesis title card. From then on, it was a standard film, rather than a hand-held film. We found that move both bold and surprising.
|Now that is just cool.|
|Mmm hmm, we know.|
|She was like a pro with that thing...|
As a normal, non [REC] related movie, it gets a C- As the third installment in the [REC] series, it gets a D+
Leticia Dolera is truly a Hottie, but we think she looks way better with long hair, as evidenced in these pictures of her with long hair. Also, boobs.
