REC 3: Genesis teaser trailer creeps online

A wedding gets destroyed in Spanish threequel

The first teaser trailer for Spanish horror [REC]³ Génesis has appeared online over at ShockTillYouDrop.

It's a cleverly done 50-second tease, spun around a neat twist on the usually yawnsome wedding photos montage before climaxing with a torrent of gore.

One things for sure, this looks fairly different to the earlier [REC] movies, both of which were set inside an infected apartment block.

This one is directed by Paco Plaza, who co-directed the earlier instalments with Jaume Balagueró, and it's said to contain prequel elements (not surprising given that subtitle).

It also seems to have moved away from the found-footage format: will it still be able to generate the same intensity of dread without the first-person gimmick?

Check out the teaser here:

[REC]³ Génesis is expected to open in Spain in March 2012.

Balagueró will direct final chapter [REC]⁴: Apocalypse, due out later next year.

      Slightly Dissapointed at this. Rec and its sequel are amazing films and the suspense of a small claustrophobic building is fantastic. Releasing it into the world is slightly dissapointing especially without that previous styling of camera work.

      Loved REC - seriously tense. Less happy with REC 2 and not sure another one set in the same environment would have worked. Probably hang around for the DVD of this one.
