As noted on other sites, [REC] 3 will be swaying away a little from the first person point of view method this time around. Now it won’t do away with it completely, but it will be more traditional. Also, the news has broke that this time around the film will also be a bit more campy and packed what could be called a “Army of Darkness” level of slapstick. Hmmm..we’ll have to see how that goes.
The original [REC] crew are back, ready to submit their ensemble cast to another fight for survival against the zombie infection, this time to the backdrop of an original soundtrack. This new chapter will see the film ‘open up’ by using a more traditional cinematographic style. However the film’s roots have not been forgotten and viewers will still be immersed in the action, watching certain events unfold through the eye of the video camera.
The action in [REC]3 Genesis encompasses the events of the first two films, and after the sense of claustrophobia previously experienced, the action now takes place miles away from the original location and partly in broad daylight, giving the film an entirely fresh, yet disturbing new reality. The infection has left the building.
In a clever twist that draws together the plots of the first two movies, this third part of the saga also works as a decoder to uncover information hidden in the first two films and leaves the door open for the final installment, the future [REC]4 Apocalypse.
