Tadff 2012: ‘[Rec]³ Génesis’ forges a misbegotten identity of its own

[Rec]³ Génesis

Directed by Paco Plaza

Written by Paco Plaza, Luiso Berdejo and David Gallart

Spain, 2012

The first [Rec] was a haunting and sinister horror film that ended on an intended note of malevolent ambiguity. [Rec] ², for better or worse, tried to elucidate the questions posed in the first. In [Rec]³ Génesis, however, it feels like the franchise was hijacked by misguided works of fan fiction, by people who loved the two previous chapters, but who fundamentally misunderstood why they were so effective. As a result, [Rec]³ is a film that forges a misbegotten identity of its own by categorically burning the bridges with its predecessors, betraying the very reason why we gave a damn about the third installment in the first place.

Génesis takes place a few hours before the events of one and two, at a wedding between Spanish couple Clara (Leticia Dolera) and Koldo (Diego Martín). Unbeknownst to them, one of the guests,

[Rec]³ Génesis Movie Review 2

[Rec]³ Génesis Movie Review 2
Title: [Rec]³ Génesis Directed By: Paco Plaza Starring: Leticia Dolera, Diego Martín, Àlex Monner, Emilio Mencheta, Ismael Martínez, Claire Baschet It’s hard to believe that with the amount of saturation of found footage movies flooding our theaters in recent years, that there was a time when the filmmaking style was something to be considered “unique”. We all have The Blair Witch Project to blame/thank for that resurgence when it was released in 1999, but another recent example would be the claustrophobic zombie-esque movie [Rec] from Spain. If you’re thinking that a group of people quarantined inside a building by the military in a found footage style is gimmicky, you might [ Read More ]

[Rec] 3 Genesis Movie Review
Title: [Rec] 3 Genesis Directed By: Paco Plaza Starring: Leticia Dolera, Diego Martín, Àlex Monner, Emilio Mencheta, Ismael Martínez, Claire Baschet I’m all for trying something new, but when you’ve got a film franchise like “Rec,” certain expectations must be met. Perhaps his fictional virus finally got to him because the fact that writer-director Paco Plaza thinks he can suddenly do away with found footage and horror in the third installment is downright bizarre. It’s Clara and Koldo’s (Leticia Dolera and Diego Martín) big day and their family and friends have all come out to see them get married. All is well until Uncle Victor (Emilio Mencheta) starts feeling under [ Read More ]

[Review] [Rec] 3: Genesis

  • The Film Stage
When zombies first shuffled onto the screen in George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, it was left unclear just how the dead came to rise again. Many theories were tossed about in that film and its sequels, among them a passing comet, biological weapons, and the coming of the apocalypse, but nothing ever really stuck. Within the past decade or so, faster, deadlier, more evolved brain eaters entered the pop culture spectrum, most notably in the Dawn of the Dead remake. However, as horror fans heralded a new breed of zombie, filmmakers were quick to distance their creations from Romero’s ghouls – Danny Boyle emerged as the biggest protester, insisting that the monsters in his film 28 Days Later were not zombies, but “infected.”

But what determines a zombie? Do their origins, speed, and motivations for killing really matter in the already vague scheme of things? Or do we

This week's new films

The Myth Of The American Sleepover (15)

(David Robert Mitchell, 2010, Us) Claire Sloma, Amanda Bauer, Marlon Morton, Matt Jacobsen. 96 mins

As low-key as it is low-budget, this is a thing of beauty. The plot is basically Dazed And Confused relocated to Michigan: high-schoolers (including a flirt with the hots for a pool-cleaner and a drop-out pining for the girl of his dreams) make the most of one last hurrah. But the film's mood is all its own, characterised by an elegiac score, easygoing performances and gorgeous cinematography.

Berberian Sound Studio (15)

(Peter Strickland, 2012, UK) Toby Jones, Tonia Sotiropoulou, Cosimo Fusco. 92 mins

There's something nasty in the recording studio. A sound engineer supplies the effects for an Italian horror movie, but the creepiness doesn't stay confined to the screen for long.

[Rec]3: Génesis DVD Review

Director: Paco Plaza

Cast: Leticia Dolera, Diego Martín, Javier Botet

Running time: 80 minutes

Certificate: 18

Plot: A couple’s wedding day turns into carnage when the guests become rampant, demonic killers. Separated in the chaos, bride and groom Clara and Koldo fight for survival if they are to reunite and live happily ever after…

Found-footage is dead. At least, that’s what Paco Plaza seems to be telling us. Curious, considering he made such innovative and exciting use of the format with the previous two installments of his [Rec] series, succeeding where numerous others have failed. But Plaza knows found-footage has outgrown its use, and abandons the technique, changing the direction of the franchise entirely. The purists may not like it, but beneath the scares and newfound sense of humour, Plaza is making a bold statement. And it’s time both viewer and industry paid attention.

It’s not that found footage doesn’t have its uses.

FrightFest 2012 Day Two: Keeping It Real

Day two of this year’s FrightFest and Thn is expecting big things from Sundance hit and Internet darling V/H/S. After a number of lukewarm found footage movie these last few years, could this anthology be the one that saves the format? Less exciting is the prospect of [Rec]3, the latest entry in the Spanish pseudo-zombie series. Whilst the first two are Thn favourites, can third time really be a charm? Especially when the action has been completely removed from the quarantined building of the previous installments (surely the key to their success). Thn is also hoping Irish horror Stitches follows the previous evening’s Grabbers as a low-key triumph for the genre. Also, star Ross Noble is so damn lovely, it’s bound to be halfway decent… right? As Thn is about to discover, FrightFest day two is one of thwarted expectations…

[Rec]3 Genesis

Stars: Leticia Dolera, Diego Martín, Javier Botet, Àlex Monner, Ismael Martínez, Borja Glez. Santaolalla, Mireia Ros | Written by Paco Plaza, Luiso Berdejo | Directed by Paco Plaza

Going it solo for the third film in the series, Paco Plaza helms what is, by far, a much stronger film than [Rec]2 and a film that not only changes the game for the franchise, abandoning as it does the “found-footage” perspective on proceedings, but also expands the mythos and the scope of the series, throwing religion much more to the fore in a way that takes the series, and the traditional zombie film, to whole new levels. The film is also, at its core, a love story. Yes, I did say love story.

[Rec] Genesis sees Clara and Koldo celebrating their recent nuptials at a posh Barcelona mansion when all hell (literally) breaks loose. With the zombie count rising and the newly-married pair separated

Kitchen Nightmare – Blood-Soaked New Clip from [Rec] 3: Genesis

  • HeyUGuys
Co-directors Paco Plaza and Jaume Balagueró first made their mark with [Rec] back in 2007, the first in one of the most well-known horror franchises outside of Hollywood in recent years.

Plaza returns behind the camera for the latest instalment, [Rec] 3: Genesis, before Balagueró brings us the follow-up, [Rec] 4: Apocalypse, expected sometime next year.

We caught a brilliant new trailer for the film back in March ahead of its Spanish debut, and now a great new clip has made its way online over at Yahoo Movies, in promotion of its VoD debut in the Us last Friday.

“The original [Rec] crew are back, ready to submit their ensemble cast to another fight for survival against the zombie infection. This time to the backdrop of an original soundtrack. The new chapter will see the film “open up” by using a more traditional cinematographic style. However, the film’s roots have not been forgotten, and

Encapsulated Cinema: Rec 3 – Genesis, Seven Below and The Collapsed

Rec 3: Genesis (2012) If you were expecting the claustrophobic terror of the first two “Rec” movies, then you’ll be sorely disappointed with Paco Plaza’s “Rec 3: Genesis”, a decidedly campier (not to mention a whole lot roomier) affair than previous entries in the franchise. The third film also marks Plaza’s first solo effort after co-writing/co-directing/co-producing the first two movies with Jaume Balagueo. The film opens in Found Footage style, documenting the impending nuptials of Clara (Leticia Dolera) and Koldo (Diego Martín). The marriage goes off without a hitch, but things take a bloody turn later at the wedding reception, where an uncle claiming to have been bitten by a dog earlier in the day turns zombie and begins feasting on poor Clara and Koldo’s relatives. Talk about a memorable wedding! I guess they’ll be talking about this one for a while. Well, the one that survives,

Rec 3: Genesis Review

Till’ death do us part…

When I first stumbled upon Rec back in 2007, it was love at first bite. Directors Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza not only revolutionized found footage zombie films, even putting undead legend George A. Romero to shame (looking at you Diary of the Dead), but they followed the film up with an even more enthralling sequel.

Rec 2 is to Rec what The Godfather: Part II is to The Godfather, building on perfection to a level that seemed unattainable. I’ve never watched a horror franchise conjure such an engrossing and mysterious story while also delivering legitimate horror scares, all surrounded with a frenzied survivalist energy. Yes, the Rec movies hold a special place in this horror lover’s collection.

Continuing the terrifying trajectory of my beloved Rec franchise, Balagueró and Plaza decided to split directing the last two planned Rec films amongst each other. No longer would the collaborators pool ideas,

No Found Footage for [Rec] 4: Apocalypse

With [Rec] 3: Genesis set to be released stateside next week, we’re starting to hear a little bit more about the next sequel. During a recent interview with [Rec] 3 director Paco Plaza, it was revealed that [Rec] 4: Apocalypse would not be a found footage film.

Via Bd: “It’s true that it takes place after ‘[Rec] 2′. And it is going to be shot [differently]. It is not going back to found footage, it is going to be a cinematic narrative. A conventional film. I don’t want to say much more, I can’t say too much. I don’t want to get in trouble!”

It may have changed a bit since the original report, but here is the synopsis from [Rec] 4: Apocalypse we reported on in January:

“Angela Vidal, the young television reporter who entered the building with the fireman, manages to make it out alive. But what the soldiers don’t

[Rec] 3: Genesis (2012)

Directed by Paco Plaza

Starring Leticia Dolero, Diego Martin, Ismael Martinez

To paraphrase the opening of Roger Ebert’s uncharitable review of the original Halloween II, it’s sad to watch a fall from greatness. That’s what we get in [Rec] 3.

When the original [Rec] came out in 2007, it was an instant classic of the zombie subgenre and another example that our best horror movies were being made outside the U.S. Then, by the grace of the smiling movie gods, 2009’s [Rec] 2 actually managed to top it, picking up just minutes after the first film ended and taking an already terrifying story into an entirely new direction while not betraying the scares and intelligence of its predecessor. The latest installment takes the key elements that made those first two so great and rejects them like a bad kidney, quickly devolving into something painfully bland and boring.

[Rec] 3: Genesis Red-Band Trailer Goes Live

If you’re anticipating the third installment of Paco Plaza’s highly praised [Rec] series, this brand new red-band trailer should certainly sate the appetite, at least for the time being. This piece of footage showcases some bloody wedding festivities, and while I’m not sure it’s worthy of an official “red band” tag, it’s still awfully entertaining! [Rec] 3: Genesis was written and directed by Paco Plaza, who’s manned the entire franchise at this point (Luiso Berdejo assisted in the crafting of the screenplay).
