'[REC] Genesis' ready to devour the UK

Possibly one of the most eagerly awaited genre films, certainly by my good self, is the next chapter in the Spanish undead saga [REC]. The first two movies were both excellent, in my opinion, apart from maybe the weird religious aspect of the second flick. Regardless of that though they have both been terrific movies. The third film, entitled Genesis, is directed by Paco Plaza (with [REC] Apocolypse to follow) and will be released on Blu-ray and DVD in the UK by eOne on September 3rd, and that artwork is just wonderful.

As the families and friends of Koldo and Clara gather outside the church in the bright Spanish sunshine just prior to the happy couple’s wedding, it seems that nothing could possibly cast a shadow on such a beautiful and joyous occasion. But when some of the guests start behaving oddly during the reception, it becomes apparent that all is not well. In no time at all, the party descends into a hellish scene of utter carnage as partygoers begin feeding on each other with a crazed bloodlust. Amidst the ensuing chaos, Koldo and Clara become separated as those still in control of their human minds and bodies seek whatever refuge they can find. Although apart, the newlyweds know deep in their hearts that each is still alive and set out on a desperate search for each other not fully realising that what should have been the happiest day of their lives could prove to be their last.

Thanks for giving this film a mention. Really looking forward to seeing this film! I heard it was apparently in the cinema for a limited time but unfortunately I missed it.

Keep up the good work!
