Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his house and find collection of VHS tapes. Viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be dark motives behind the student's disappearance.
The action now takes place miles away from the original location and partly in broad daylight, giving the film an entirely fresh yet disturbing new reality. The infection has left the building. In a clever twist that draws together the plots of the first two movies, this third part of the saga also works as a decoder to uncover information hidden in the first two films and leaves the door open for the final installment, the future '[REC] 4 Apocalypse.' Written by
On the day of the wedding of Clara (Leticia Dolera) and Koldo (Diego Martín), their uncle Pepe Víctor (Emilio Mencheta) comes to the ceremony with a wounded hand that was bitten by a dog. Soon the infection turns him into a zombie and he attacks the other guests. Along the day and the night, Koldo and Clara seek out each other while they see their families turning into zombies.
"REC3 Génesis" is a silly, gore and deceptive comedy of zombies. Director Paco Plaza has changed his style in horror movies; maybe he is fan of Robert Rodriguez or Peter Jackson in the beginning if his career and made a tribute to trash that is neither original nor funny. For those that do not understand Spanish, it may seem that REC means "Zombie Movie" in Spanish since in common with the two previous REC are the zombies only. It is not funny the priest controlling zombies preaching; actually it is terrible sequence. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): Not Available
