Reccing Genesis

Yay, there is a third movie to the series! (Please don't let there be a third American movie...)

The [REC] movies have been stuck in a house, people trying to run away from the zombies, all recorded on some version of handy cam... and this movie shakes up those rules. It's a wedding, and Uncle got bit by a dog, so you know what's coming... and it does! And then people run around! Woo!

This isn't a Genesis, as in a prequel. This still seems to be following the line, with the government knowing all about it, but there is a line about how this is a Genesis of something more. And this movie does indeed extend the mythology, and loads more on the religious aspects initiated by the second movie. Will there be another one that takes it another step? Are we heading towards some kind of demon/angel war or something? I have no idea, as this has always been a low budget type of movie, so I don't know if there will be a fourth, but I would like to find out where Paco Plaza is going with this. (Maybe this?)

(With this being a change up, and looking at the poster... I am also wondering if there is an influence of The Bride?)

Anyway, clearly Paco is trying different things, and I'm willing to go with him on this. Let's see what else he's got.
