If your first two helpings of gory Spanish zombie action weren’t enough, you’ll be pleased to hear the REC franchise has prepared a third installment. Have a look at the trailer below -
This is the first time the Spanish side of the franchise has broken away from the original apartment building in Barcelona. Instead, the film documents the wedding day of Clara and Koldo, which gets rudely interrupted by a violent zombie outbreak.
From the looks of the trailer, the feel of the film is very different, with the shaky hand-held camera style being swapped for a much slicker, higher production value look.
However, it keeps firmly rooted in its predececors, and promises to draw together the plot of the first two movies, while leaving the door open for the final installment, REC 4 Apocalypse.
I’m personally really excited about the news, the first two movies were excellent pieces of horror, and I can’t wait for more sleepless nights!
The film has already been released in Spain, with a release over here in the UK expected next month. But, if you can’t wait until then, it is currently being screened at the Imagine Film Festival in Amsterdam.
If you’re in the city at the moment, head over to the Kiterion where you’ll find some of the freshest and most exciting new releases. Besides REC 3, here’s a video playlist of our favourite trailers:
Remember it’s not too late to get a piece of the action – carriers like British Airways do last minute cheap flights to Amsterdam so if you have a bit of time spare, it’s definitely worth hopping over to the continent and checking it out!
