‘(Rec) 3: Genesis’ infects the US SXSW Film Festival and releases two brand new clips, watch them here!

Director Paco Plaza’s third film in the (Rec) franchise, (Rec) 3: Genesis, will play at the SXSW festival tonight and next Wednesday, and then will be released Spanish cinemas from 30th March (lucky Spanish!!) In preparation for the films onslaught, two new clips have been released, and while they do not contain English subtitles, they do show off the tight production of the film, and introduce some pretty strong characters. I couldn’t be more excited about this darned film, and we still have (Rec) 4: Apocalypse to come! The big question is, can Jaume Balaguero deliver a fourth film and create such an immense buzz as his partner in crime Paco Plaza has here?

If the fourth film looks even remotely as good as part 3 is looking the (Rec) franchise could go down in history as one of the best horror series’ ever! Anyway, less talk, the clips are at the bottom of this post, along with a new new images recently released.

(Rec) 3: Genesis opens in its native Spain on 30th March, so expect a release date for the UK  to (hopefully) be released shortly. After somehow improving on the first film with (Rec) 2 is it possible Plaza can improve even further with part 3? It certainly looks that way so far from all the images and trailers that have so far been released. You can check out all our previous goodies here

(Rec) 3: Genesis is directed by Paco Plaza and stars the seriously sexy Leticia Dolera as ‘The Bride’ Clara along with Diego Martin as ‘The Husband’ Koldo.


Koldo and Clara are about to celebrate the most important day of their lives: their wedding. Everything appears to be running smoothly, and the bride and groom and their families are enjoying a wonderful day–that is, until some of the guests start showing signs of a strange illness. Before they know what’s happening, the bride and groom find themselves in the middle of a hellish ordeal as an uncontrollable torrent of violence is unleashed on the wedding. Amidst the chaos Koldo and Clara become separated and begin a desperate search for one another. What started off as an idyllic day quickly descends into a nightmare of the worst kind…

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
