Sweet Trailer…[REC] 3

If there’s one series that has really benefited from the found footage style of filmmaking it’s Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero‘s [REC]. Yes Paranormal Activity has done well but these days, most horror films shot this way would be a stretch to get people on board for anything past the first film. But here comes [REC]3, as both a prequel and a sequel to show us where the madness all started. Here is the trailer for the duo’s third zombified outing. Have a look…

[REC]3 is the first of two sequels titled Genesis and Apocalypse. The first two films were co-directed by Plaza and Balaguero, but now the duo is pairing off with Placa taking Genesis and Balaguero, Apocalypse. As a prequel, Genesis shows the origins of the mutant virus and, presumably, Apocalypse will book end to the series showing the virus on a large scale after the apartment quarantine.

Starring Leticia Dolera, Diego Martín and Javier Botet, [REC]3 will be released in Spain as well as make the festival rounds at SXSW 2012 this month. Word on the street is that instead of a limited stateside release it’ll be available on VOD and DVD later this year. What do you [REC] fans think? How does this grab you??
